Re: 22-250 loads
Too bad about your coyotes. Plenty over here and lots in central idaho if you ever get the hankering. Yes, I have a shilen select barrel chambered for 300WM. I love it! Yes, after reading COBrads post, I remeber reading one guy also say he likes .025" off. For my win mag, it is .005" off with the 200 grain SMKs. Before rebarreling my 300, it liked 200 grain partitions at the lands, but the barrel drove me nuts because after owning the rifle for a couple months and after floating the barrel, I noticed that the barrel was slightly crooked and the gunsmith over here confirmed. Custom from now on! I really like my shilen, but I like Dan Lilja a lot and his reputation (great personable guy to talk to over the phone) that I will most likely go with his barrels next time. I hope to build a 6.5-284 with a 1 in 8.5 twist in the near future, but I need to see if he actually puts out an 8.5. If not, I guess a 1 in 8 will work.
