best barrel, data from competition

Where would I find the latest data on which barrels are winning competitions in the various forms of competition shooting, F-class, benchrest, etc.?

Just look at the range data on there website. They usually say what custom rig they use or just call.. I gotta say hart barrels in ny is excellent place. I visited them and fell head first, what a bunch of outstanding folks.

Results and equipment lists for BR matches can be found at: Untitled Document and Precision Rifleman Online! | National Benchrest Shooters Association

You will see from these publications that for some time now, Krieger and Bartlein are the dominant barrels in the BR winners circle.

I spoke with a gentleman that sells a variety of cut rifled barrels and he stated that Bartlein is the most sought after barrel currently. Thank you for the links!

The PA 1000yd range is mostly Kreiger and Broughton with some Bartlein. I'm pretty sure the new 600yd record was set with a Brux. It seems like short range 6ppc and .30BR stuff still has a lot of Shilen and Hart's but the LR stuff doesn't so much any more.
