I would say....ditch the factory tube and buy one from one of the reputable manufacturers...you won't be disappointed!

Good Luck,

I went with a Bartlein on my 6.5x284. It is a Gain Twist barrel, 24" long. Starts at 8.5 and ends at 8 at the muzzle. It is the 5R style rifling. Plan is 140 Berger VLD.

I would use ANY of the following with confidence so it's really just a matter of cost to you and how soon you want the barrel:

Krieger, Bartlein, Obermyer, Hart, Broughton, Lilja, Shilen.

    I bought a Krieger 8 twist 31 in long for my 6.5 WSM build. My friend has a Krieger on his 6.5x47 and has shot a lot of 1 inch groups at 500 yds with it. That is why I went with a Krieger. Brunos always has Kriegers in stock, that is where I got mine.
