I believe the Krieger and the Brux and the Bartlien are all cut rifled...and they are what I would want...in SST of course.

That should help you figure twist rate anyway.

I have shot Lilja, Shilen, and Kriegers with great success. I dont think that you would be disappointed with any that you listed.

Re: Barrel???

I bought a Krieger for my 6.5 WSM build. It has a 8 twist so I can shoot the 140 grainers. My friend has a Krieger on has 6.5x47 Lapua and has shot a lot of 1 inch or less groups at 500 yds with 140gr Berger VLD's. That is why I went with a Krieger, and Brunos has a lot of Kriegers in stock.

Re: Barrel???

I'd order what can get shipped the soonest. I have two Brux bbls and they arrived with in 10 weeks of order. Plus they're cut rifled.
