I agree with jerry. I try to stay ahead of my personal consumption by keeping my own inventory and ordering a year in advance. I personally see more difference in the quality of the rifles and the way they shoot due to the smith than which companies barrel is on the gun. I have or have had personally Hart, Lilja, Krieger , Broughton, Brux, Douglas,Pac-Nor, and Shilen. Subtle differences, yes, but the biggest driver is still the accuracy and care getting the chamber and install correct. I am going to try a benchmark next from the special offer on this sight. Doing a 1-8 6XC. My point is don't limit yourself to just one magic tube maker, all of the above are proven and will provide you with a gun that will outshoot you if smithed correctly!
