Like I mentioned earlier, getting the barrel from Krieger is going to be the longest wait of all the pieces to put this together. My gunsmith does all the ordering but I talked to Krieger myself to see what kind of wait time we were looking at and they told me they don't get a lot of orders for fast twist 20 cal barrels so it'll likely be a few months before we get a barrel although I think Shawn was going to order a couple extra barrels so maybe that'll help speed up the order. I typically use Hart barrels and when I spec a Hart barrel on a build Defensive Edge Rifles usually has my build done in 3 months or less but I'm guessing this one is going to be more like 6 or even 6+.

Almost ever rifle I have has some sort of an "improved" chamber but this one will definitely be the most overbore, that's for sure. FPS #'s are fun to brag about but if it shoots really well with the 55's at 4000fps I'll be happy and if it shoots really well anything above 4000, that'll just be bonus.

Defensive Edge has built me a few now and the worst one shoots in the .3's so my confidence in their abilities is naturally pretty high.

Appreciate the well wishes and I'll keep you all up to date as this progresses along.

The original 204 project ended up not working out. They went through a barrel or two on their shop/test gun trying to make it shoot but never could get much better than about MOA. The speed was there but not the accuracy so they gave me the option of returning my parts an ditching the whole idea or they'd build me something else. I chose the build me something else route and since I already had a couple Krieger 8tw .20 cal barrels that project turned into a 20-250 shooting the Berger 55's. Not sending them down range nearly as fast as the original project but it shot test groups in the .1's so it turned out well in the end.

Since I don't seem to have enough varmint guns, they're now building me a 22-243 Improved and a 20-222. Both are on blueprinted Rem SA 700's, the 22-243 will use a Krieger barrel and the 20-222 will wear a Hart barrel.
