Thanks Stu, sounds like a very good outfit. It sure sorts out those Tahr, what else have you shot with it? I hope to get over the ditch soon and have a hunt on the Tahr and chammmmmmy some time next year.
I am thinking of using one of those truflite barrels on a new project of mine. They are available through keith Hills gunsmithing service here in Australia.
What is your opinion of these barrels compared to a U.S. made custom barrel? With my current project a .338 EDGE, I have been waiting on a Lilja barrel from the U.S. since November last year and I am starting to get a bit disheartened!
I have used Aussie made MAB barrels in the past but am not too happy with them so am looking to a local ulternative.
Keep up the good work.
