Barrel for 308 build. Benchmark, Lothar W, Brux or CBI

I have almost everything but the barrel for my 308 build. Which as of right now I plan on putting a 26" tube on. I wanted 5r but not all of the brands offer 5r. I have a CBI 280 and its great but fouls quite a bit, regardless it shoots just under 0.25ctc so far.

Whats your opinion and experience w/ the above brands?

    Bartlein offers a 5R, Rock Creek is 5R, Obermeyer is 5R, and Krieger can do 5R if you request it.

    Benchmark and brux have a good reputation so does cbi but I was hoping to hear about lothar and walther. Also they(LW) have about 6wk wait compared to 12-14
