I still haven't gotten a barrel from them, yet, but one of the Bartlein brothers did a paint job on my ANschutz center grip. I wanted it to look like the American flag. I'm still planning on stopping by and check out their shop.
I tried a couple and the results were not good on one of my competition rifles---went back to Krieger... My Smith was not real impressed with them after he scoped both of them and neither was I but gave Frank a shot even if the tubes were 4 months late...
The Truth Is Not Always Good For Business!!
I have only used one. It is on my 7ultra right now. Its is one of the best "feeling" barrels I have worked with. The metal cut beautifully. Never fouled from shot one. I came with a darn near polished finish. That being said it is nominal on size. Bullets I have had great luck with(same lots) have to be popped harder to fill out the grooves to get the same accuracy. I have 250 rounds through her and have lost about .015 in throat. Crazy. Super fast. I cant get up to 3400 with 176s before getting real pressure signs. Its 28in. I cant explain it. I have never got that speed out of any other ultra before. I keep her down at 3200. Still should be hot. The sizer just falls over her and soft primers? Not the most accurate gun I have put together but will hold 1moa out to a mile. Oh well.
When yopu say your like the way the barrel cut do you mean that it cut soft? , I have cut a few Shilen barrels and you can tell they are softer than a Krieger or Lilja , and I have cut a couple Pac-Nor SS barrels , one cut like CM and the other cut like lead !!
Bought one last year, chambered in 30BR; shot extremely well. Took about 200 rounds before I found any fouling at all. But, there are many good barrels out there. More important is having a first class chambering job.
