Benchmark Barrels...

Anyone here ever used them?

Considering them for a rebarrel job, and would like to get some input.

Thanks!

Wish I could. I just recieved my 3 groove 300 wsm barrel 2 weeks ago. They had the it to me in less than 3 weeks from when I ordered it. I have some buddys that use them with great results. I will have results soon.

Re: Benchmark Barrels...

Haven't used them but scads of people love them. Short lead times now too. What's not to like about that?

Re: Benchmark Barrels...

crazyhorse---I have not "personally" used them however I have a rifle that I bought from Midnightmalloy here that has a benchmark on it and it is a quality barrel and shoots great. I have also heard good things about them from others so I think you would fine to deal with them.

Re: Benchmark Barrels...

I have a Benchmark on my long range rig. It shoot fantastic! A true 3/8 moa or better hunting rifle using hunting bullets.

I can't speak to their work but their barrels are great in my experience.

These are the first 12 shots out of the barrel during break in at 100 yards using an unknown starter load. It was shoot-clean-shoot-clean... Started in the top left and went clockwise ending on the bottom left. (yes, it was that close to sighted in from the start!)

It's only gotten better since then

Benchmark makes awesome barrels. I had one installed for me by Stockade and am totally happy with it. it's been mazing through the first 100 rounds, and I only expect it to get better
