Re: Bartlein 5R barrel??

BTW, the only Hog I ever shot was in No. California years ago. He was on the run at 120~yds and I hit him high in the shoulder with a .270/150gr sierra SPBT elk load. Approx 2900@muzzle.
He rolled and tried to get up, but I don't think he went 10 feet. He was only about 150 lbs though, so not very big.

I've NEVER dropped a hog. Even a .50 Cal Muzzle Loader at 7 yards (a double lung shot that blew lung and rib chunks on the ground) the hog still ran 60 yards.

We only head shoot our hogs. Just below the ear, they drop like a rock and we don't ruin any meat. Forget the lungs when it comes to hogs, if there looking straight at you we shoot for an eye, if broad side just under the base of the ear.

Hope it helps

Distance is not an issue, but the wind will make it interesting!

Recently got a bartlein barrel installed on a stiller action based build......very nice barrel, very straight .0001 per gunsmith. Doesn't foul and couldn't shoot any better!

I have an Bartlein R5 on my 308 that was sent off to GAP, and it is a shooter i'll tell you that.

If you haven't sent it off, what the heck are you waiting for. Send it, you won't be disappointed.

The price is comparable to other companies also.

Re: Bartlein 5R barrel??


I'm leaning towards waiting until after deer season (Jan.). I only have one deer rifle and I'd atleast like to put this summer's worth of work (150 rds) of load developement to work. GAP quoted me 6 months turn around:(

I'm guessing that with the new barrel, blue printed action and new stock (bedded), that I'll have to go back and tweak the load? I'm assuming I've satisfied the harmonics of the rifle (best I can) and not just perfected the settings that the load likes. Meaning I'll have to tweak it to the new rifle?

That'll be a good project for next spring or summer when I get the rifle back. Funny, today the gunsmith that owns the private range I shoot at told me I'd have to stop comming so much or pay more!!! (I pay annually) If that tells you how much I've been enjoy'n my summer

P.S. I'll also need the school loan check for spring semester to further my negative hog roll

Does anybody know of any negative side effects to recessing the crown? So my hunting rifle's crown stays the way it's suppose to be.

I also have a bartline that is being installed on a .338 edge. The gunsmith said it was one of the cleanest barrels he has ever seen. In fact he ordered himself one.
