Dan Zimmerman comes to mind. He doesn't call himself Hepman for nothing.
I'm not from here, I just live here.

My recently acquired Brg Bpcr was rebarrelled
to 38-50/Badger 10 twist octagon by Mike Lewis.
It has it's "roots" in Dan T. So I presume Mike has
a Dan T design reamer.
An Excellent job inside and out.
My others by Mike Lewis- done with Dan T reamers I own-
32-40Rem Hep and 35-50
Are also very well done.
