Look at this article by Gale McMillan and decide for yourself.
The best way to sell barrels is to build good ones and improve the life of one .
There are many reason that we buy certain brands of barrels. Quality,barrel life,accuracy
and service. Without these attributes barrel makers don't last long.
When a barrel maker tells you to break in a barrel or not to break in a barrel it is in his
best interest to steer you in the right direction for his barrels so you will buy from him in
the future. It is nor a conspiracy.
Most barrel makers will tell you to break there barrels. A few will tell you don't worry about
it. Do what they say and you should be happy with the results.
I have tried most all barrels and strangely enough the ones that recomended breaking a
barrel in have been My best performers in all areas.
I would have to say that barrel break in is up to the individual and is not a conspiracy by
the barrel makers because if there barrels dont last long most people will not buy anymore from
Quality Sells - bull $#!t smells.
