Rock Creek is a good option. My buddy has one on his .260 and it is awesome.

    They are all custom bbls, you will be fine with any of them.

    You wouldn't know the difference between any custom bbl you bought.

    As long as they are hand lapped.

    The biggest thing is build what you want the first time, some of the guys we do builds for end up building again just because the first rifle didn't have a feature they wanted or was ballisticly wrong for their use. ie 308 win out to 1200yds.

    Agreed, in this sport it pays to cry once. B/c I've found myself crying several times over.

    I ended up going w/ the CBI 28" fluted. I want the option of shooting 1k and after the performance of my 280 I cannot deny the capability of these tubes. Hopefully I can post up some brag pictures.
