Top choice....

If you had to choose between the three, who would you pick as your precision rifle barrel? Saturn, Kreiger, or Bartlein? I'm at a gunsmiths convention in Des Moines, IA and I've had the pleasure of talking to Steve and Debra Satern and John Krieger. I've heard good things about all three. Just wanna see what everyone's opinion/experience has has been.

Re: Top choice....

Mike Rock from Rock Creek Barrels would be my barrel of choice. But I have heard great things about all of them. The reason I like Rock Creeks is b/c my gunsmith is close friends with Mike, so he gets a great deal on them. Plus, they are incrediy accurate barrels and he has the Obermeyer approval to do 5R rifling.

The one with the shortest lead time.

^^^ +10. Michael nailed it. Properly 'smithed, they all have the ability to deliver insane accuracy. I don't think that you can go wrong.
