Re: Bartlein or Krieger ?
I have two 30/375 S.I.'s; one with a Krieger 4 groove and one with a Bartlein 5r. Both are good shooters but the Krieger is better. This may well be because the Krieger is on a BAT action and the Bartlein on a B78. Both clean up very well and the Krieger is 25' faster, but again, has a melonited barrel. Bartlein owners use to work for Krieger. Bartlein is a much newer co. and my smith says he has (never) had any trouble with Kriegers service. I don't think you could go wrong with either, but because of the long time quality, I would go with Krieger........Rich
