Barrel HELP for 338 Allen Mag Project
Hey everyone, as mentioned before I am currently working with Kirby to possibly build a 338 Allen Mag. I have decided on some of the equipmet for this project, however, I am having difficulty deciding on what barrel to use. I am considering going with a Lawton Barrel. I think I am going to go with a Lawton action, so I thought I would go with one of there barrels too. I have also thought about Krieger, Lilja, and Broughton. I believe Lilja barrels have been working well in the bigger calibers such as 30 and 338 calibers.
I have used Kriegers and Harts on my other project, with excellent results. Basically, I am looking for some imput regarding Lawton Barrels. Has anyone used them and, if so, how did they work. I saw that a record was just broken with a Lawton Action and Barrel. Any input would be welcomed. This is a big project, and I want to get everything perfect. Input from this site is very important to me because of all the knowledgible people and excellent gunsmiths that visit it. Any suggestions, about the project, would be great too! Let me know what you guys think. Here are the specs for the possible project any input would be appreciated;
