Anybody useing Krieger barrels ? / opponions on them ??

I have noticed that their arn't to many guys here that are shooting Krieger barrels , juts wondering if their was any reason.
I talked to one of their Tech Reps today for a while and they sound as good or better than all the other top end tubes but I'm guessing that anybody that works their isin't gonna bad mouth their products so I was looking for some realy world results and thoughts on how they compair to Hart,Rock and Broughton?

Krieger barrels are top notch. Very well made and machine nicely. I have built several rifles with them and all shot fantastic.

Kreiger makes excellent barrels. However, in my opinion they are a bit on the soft side and wear out a bit faster than others.

JDJones,

I have used a few of these barrels when customers request and have full confidence in their quality. If a rifle fitted with a Krieger barrel does not shoot well, it is not the fault of the barrel.

That said, I use Lilja barrels simply because from my experience they are at least the full equal as the Kriegers and don;t take nearly as long to get in from order.

If your looking for a top grade barrel you will not go wrong with choosing a Krieger barrel.

Can;t comment on the barrel life as I do not have a Krieger on any of my personal rifles or handguns, all Liljas.

Good Shooting!!

Re: Anybody useing Krieger barrels ? / opponions on them ??

I have a Kreiger palma barrel on one of my 300 RUM's that was originally chambered in 308. I had an inch taken off each end and rechambered to the RUM, it had about 350rds as a 308 and now has over 500rds as a RUM and it's as good as any barrel I've used. As a longrange hunting rifle ( 13#'s ) it will shoot 1/2moa to 1000yds ( 3 shots ) if I do my part.
