Re: Is Bartlein worth the wait?
Sounds like you are building a hunting rifle not a bench rest gun. I have purchased from Bugholes as well, no problem. I have a Rock Creek on a 338 edge MTU contour, Krieger #4 on a 300wsm, and just bought a Lilja #3 for my 264 wm. I like them all and they all shoot good. I think if you can find one in stock from the major players and/or from a distributor you will be happy. All of these barrels shoot better than 1/2 MOA.
