Rock creek sells their premium barrel as a cut rifled, and their budget barrel is button. Just an FYI
I still think the gunsmith fitting the barrel to the action and chambering, the cartridge loading procedures, and the personal whose finger is on the trigger will more likely influence the accuracy than the barrel, providing it is a premium barrel of a known manufacturer.
"It is not the critic who counts, not the man who points out how the strong man stumbled, or where the doer of deeds could have done better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, who's face is marred by dust and sweat and blood, who, at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who know neither victory nor defeat."
