BISON (BENCHMARK) RIFLE BARRELS

ANYONE OUT THERE HAVE ANY EXPERIENCE OR KNOW ABOUT BISON RIFLE BARRELS? I BELIEVE THEY ARE NOW CALLED BENCHMARK BARRELS. I HAVE FOUND AN UNCHAMBERED SS (MATCH?)BLANK FOR SALE. I WAS WONDERING HOW THEY COMPARE TO WELL KNOWN MATCH BARREL MAKERS (KRIEGER, HART, SHILEN)FOR QUALITY AND PRICE? WHERE CAN I FIND INFO. ON THESE BARRELS? THANKS FOR YOUR INPUT.

Yep that would be Kevin Rayhill , he's a good smith to. I'm sure that they are on par with Pac-Nor and Douglas and the such , not saying that either one of those is a lesser barrel than say Hart or Lilja because I have a Douglas that will shoot as good as any Hart.

I know the barrels your talking about , which one are you looking at ?? I was eying up the 7mm barrel but funds are little tight to be spending on toys

ARCHIE, I CALLED KEVIN. HE SEEMS TO BE A VERY KNOWLEDGEABLE GUNSMITH. HE SAYES HE USES BENCHMARK MORE THAN ANY OTHER BARREL NOW. AND HAS COMPLETE CONFIDENCE IN THEM. THANKS, FOR YOUR INPUT.

JDJONES, THANKS FOR YOUR INPUT. YOU PROBABLE ARE LOOKING AT THE SAME BARRELS. I LIVE CLOSELY TO THE INDIVIDAL SELLING THEM. I AM GOING TO MEET WITH HIM ASAP TO LOOK AT THEM.

I have had 5 bision /benchmark barrels and everyone would shoot under a .25 moa. Kevin is a good smith and a real character too. What is the length and what bore is the blank. If you don't want it maybe I"ll by it. Thanks Reed
