    I ordered a custom barrel in a 243 Ackley Improved for my T/C Encore from a very reputable custom shop.

    Make a long story short..they messed up and chambered the barrel for the std...243Win.

    In talking with the people on the phone, they said for me to send the barrel back in and they will rechamber it to the 243AI.

    I have talked to a few people about this and they have told me that by rechambering from the std 243 to the Ackley Improved...I will not have the true diminsions of the 243AI because of having to clean the shoulder area from the rechambering.....that the barrel will have to be set back a tad.

    I do not think there is be a problem with this.....

    Could you all give me some info on this situation...to help relieve me of my concerns.
