Re: waiting on new barrels.

Try Googling BRUX BARRELS and try to look up a phone # to call them. I used to have their #, but lost it. They usually can give you a good idea on wait time. I got one from them about 4 years ago and I had my rifle built in 5 weeks. My builder was having a long weight on the "big" name barrel makers. They have a lot more orders now, but you might get them faster by going directly to them.

Mine is a 1 in 8" twist 26" long 6mm Norma BR. and here is a five shot 200 yd. target and a 1,000 yd. target shot from my hunting rifle. The score & group sizes of the 3 five shot groups are in lower left of the target. All 15 shots were over about 2 hours and every shot would hit the boiler room of an antelope. - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

    My 6mmBR has a Brux on it. 6.5-20 Zeiss scope and all bedded down into a Shehane laminated stock. GREAT little shooting iron for sure.
