    does anyone know of this smith? I am currently looking at a rifle chambered by him. I didn't know if anyone here had first hand dealings with him, to know if he is a quality smith or not?? he is located in Boone, N.C.

    I have known James for years now. He shoots with us at Piedmont Gun Club. James is a formidable competitor but a very nice guy to shoot with. He has done some work on several 40XBr's for me and is a very skilled gunsmith. Go to IBS longrange results and look at the 600yd Piedmont gun club matches and you can see how well he shoots and then look at the equipment info. James does his own smithing and is very good. I trust his work and value his friendship

    Jim,
    thanks so much for the info. I was getting worried since no one had replied yet! Just the kind of info I wanted to know. I haven't laid eyes on the gun yet, but a friend of mine called, and has it set back in his shop for me. I can't wait to see it. it's a 6mm ackley, which is a caliber I have always wanted to play with. 1x12 twist, so it should do well with lighter bullets. thanks again.

    That is the caliber James chambered for me (both 40X's) If you could find some of Jef Fowler's original 80 gr FB you would be very pleased.
