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.

Re: Pac Nor or Lilja?

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

Re: Pac Nor or Lilja?

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.

Re: Pac Nor or Lilja?

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.
