There has been no further testing on the 6.5, and 7.0, in lieu of the completion of six rifles with the appropriate twist geometry. The next series of range reports will also benefit from supplemental modeling, and testing by Bryan Litz. Given past evaluations he has performed, I would expect a fairly thorough assessment to be posted at one, or more, sites.
If all goes as planned, we will have some doppler data this summer, for ultimate incorporation into a marketable ballistics program.

I'm glad to see you guys are willing to work together and trust one another. There was another bullet MFG who posted here and chose to "look a gift horse in the mouth". That was a shame. It's rare to see this kind of cooperation between a couple guys like Noel and Bryan. You guys are what make this industry/sport/site GREAT!

I just talked with someone suposedly "in the know" who gave me info on some of the current barrell delays. My brother and I use Alan and Dan Warner as our "go to" target rifle riflesmiths. Their rifles all shoot amazing, Warner uses Bartlein barrels exclusively, unless the shooter demands they use something else, and they usually they have 30 or 40 in stock at any given time.
I was talking with Alan this morning about a number of things, and brought up my 338 gain twist barrel delays. Alan asked if I was aware that Frank and the guys had run into a supply problem that resulted in them returning around 180 barrels to the manufacturer - after they had been drilled and prepped for rifiling. My answer was - of course - no, but it does explain why there would be such a hude delay in getting barrels.
Believe it or not, its up to you. It rings pretty true to me, and does explain why some of these projects are taking a lot longer to finish than we expected.
