    Friends,

    I have a sporterized '03 Springfield in 35 Whelen to which I wish to give the "Ackley Improved" treatment. Anyone know a gunsmith in Josephine or Jackson County that will do this? I can rent the reamer.

    It would also be nice, assuming it makes financial sense to do so, to have my dies reamed as well.

    Thanks,
    Dan

    I have used Val Alberts at A&B Traders. He is located in Medford. I know many other people that use him as well. He is only open to the public a few days a week. He has done really good work for me at a very reasonable price. I don't have his number or address at the moment but if you google it you should find everything you need.

    You would be better off to buy new dies. The chambering reamer is not the right size for dies. Ammo specs are very different than chamber specs.

    Thanks, everyone. I'm going to go with regular 35 whelen this year. It's my west-side elk rifle, and it's getting a bit late.

    If you are still thinking about improving your rifle, I have a RCBS Fl die set in 35 Whelen Imp for sale or trade. I am located in Medford.
