Any experience with Brux barrels?

I am going to rebarrel a rifle and plan on using a Brux 1:8.5 twist 24" in .284. Anyone have any experience with them? Good? Bad? Clean easy? Shoot good? This will be my first rebarrel so i am very new to this.

Thanks for any and all help.

-Riley

My guess on W3P .308 230 Grain Bullet: G1 .740-.755

    I have one on order. I've heard good things about Brux. Len has used them on some of his builds.

    Nathan Dagley (Straight Shot Gunsmithing) recommends Brux barrels.

    Lorenzo Young (Grit) is getting ready to finish up my build. He learned a lot from Nate at SSG and he recommended Brux for my build so that's what I went with. I should have results of how it shoots by the end of the month

    I went with a brux on my build. Anxiously awaiting completion!
