A friend of mine has two rifles he inherited from his father that neither of us know much about. They are Remington 700s with Shilen barrels and 6.5X20 Leopold scopes,one is 7mm-06 (.280 ? )with .315 neck and the other is 6mm Remington with a .265 neck. What part of the neck is non-standard, length or thickness? What would someone have these rifles special made for? Now for the obvious question, what do rifles like these sell for?

Mortdooley,
The thickness of the neck is what the .315 and .265 refer to. Most likely if he was into competition I would say he is at distances beyond 300 yards. those rounds could also be used for varminting, and some larger deer type game.
The stock type might also guide you to what type of shooting he was doing. If they weigh 16lbs, have no drop in the buttstock, and have wide forends, he would be less likely to carry it around, and competition/dedicated varminting would be more likely (note I did not say definitively). I don't know that those would be ideal deer rounds, but certainly will take deer or slightly larger game.
check out the classifieds on this site or "the list" to get an idea about what they are worth. Barrel round count, throat wear, stock condition, and action work (if trued by a smith, bluing, etc...) would be sources of value or loss.
Hope this helps.

are chamber neck DIAMETERS not thickness of the neck.I would make a Cerro-safe casting of each chamber, then compare the dimentions with with the 7-06 or 280 rem and the 6mm and see where your at

A chamber reamer sounds like a better solution but I am sure that is blasphemy with this crowd. He sold me one in .223 that takes factory dimension ammo and the accuracy is fantastic, how can unique dimensions be that much of a benefit?

It's not for hunting, but the guy that built these obviously was interested in benchrest accuracy.
