Pac Nor or Lilja?

Both offer a 3 groove in a 1:11 twist for .308 cal. I am going to order one and wonder which of the two I should go with. I am shooting Berger 210's in a 300WSM. This will be my first custom barrel purchase. Price should be very similar.

    You really can't go wrong with either choice. I've used more Lilja barrels than Pac Nor but they both shot extremely well.

    I have had barrel conversations with both Chris and Dan through the years and used both barrels with success. You can't go wrong with either.

    What's the difference between a standard match and a super match grade barrel from Pac Nor? Is it worth the extra money for the super match?

    I can't speak to Pac-Nor but I have had three Lilja 3 groovers. I currently have one on my 6.5 and it shoots very well. One thing about Lilja, they only make ONE grade. Good luck/Rich
    p.s. Given any more thought to bullet making?

    Re: Pac Nor or Lilja?

    I have barrels from both. Of all the handlapped barrels I own, the PacNor was by FAR the easiest to break in and keep clean for whatever reason. I have several Liljas and recommended them to a buddy who just built a custom 270 and 300 SAUM. My brother chose the PacNor for his 270.

    There's been a lot of good feedback on Rock Creek's 30 cal 5R cut rifled barrels in 11 twist and this will be the brand I go with next unless I change my mind.
