243LBC?

I am interested in building an AR-15 based upper in 243LBC. The build would require a high quality stainless, full bull contour barrel, and as it seems few pre-chambered barrels in this chambering are available, it would likely require chambering by a competent gunsmith with the reamer.

Any insight into this cartridge, but especially on local-ish gunsmiths that could do the chambering, would be appreciated. (I'm in Cecil county.)

I would just order one from here but be prepared to wait. JMO
Never had any issue with any of their barrels.

Thanks for the info on CRA.
Is there a competent MD-ish based gunsmith that can chamber an AR barrel blank to 243LBC?
