Get ready for a 6 month wait if you're particular and need a barrel custom ordered.

Otherwise, you might talk to your smith. He may have what you need, or be able to locate it.

Re: 6.5-284 Norma

6.5x284 is a claimed barrel smoker, but its all in how its treated. If I were picking an all purpose barrel for that cal I would stick with a cut rifled barrel kreiger 5 groove or brux 4 groove heavy contour fluted with a 8.5 twist finished at 26" you can run the heavier bullets at higher velocities without over spinning them.

The best things in life are worth the wait.

I've seen 15-25 week estimates from different makers. Most of them have some inventory on hand. But, there's usually a reason why it's still in their inventory. Not that the quality isn't there. ...slow twist or something.

So, make sure you know what you want and don't settle for something that isn't quite right.

Some smiths and outfits like Bruno's stock a decent selection.

Re: 6.5-284 Norma

I thank you all for the input! I truly dont mind the wait. I have to wait at least 8 weeks for my stock to come from H-S Precision anyway. I was looking at the Shilin.... I believe that I spelled that correctly.... But I might look around a little more. I am pretty excited about getting this rifle together. I first and only custom rifle.....
