Anyone want to rent or loan me a .280 finishing reamer?

Hey all,

I am looking for a .280 finishing reamer to finish up my .280 Remington. My buddy and I have had some difficulties finding a reamer to rent, as everywhere we find that says they have one available changes the story when we call them. I am considering buying one cause it has been 10 months since this project got off the ground, and I would like to be able to hunt with this rifle this year. So, does anyone have the reamer I need so I can get to shooting this thing? If you're interested, PM me, and we can talk about me sending some money your way or maybe working out a trade on something. Thanks in advance.

FWIW, I would be willing to discuss placing a full deposit for the cost of the reamer that you could hold until I get the reamer back to you, and then you could refund the deposit minus whatever fee we agree on. Thanks.

Thanks for the reply, the props, and the link. I will send it on to him and see if we can get one through them. As soon as I can get the chamber finished, it won't be long till we have it done, and I am looking forward to posting up some pics of it. It's going to be a gorgeous rifle.

I usually rent from 4D Products. The reamers arrive sharp and ready for use. Prices are very reasonable. They also rent headspace gauges.
