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...

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 !!

Not hard nor soft just clean. Beautiful cuts with carbide or high speed.

Bartlien

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.
