Re: Cutting edge bullets barrel rifling damage???

Thanks JE! My rig is at the smith right now while he's got it I think I may go ahead and rebarrel with a lilja 3 groove at 27" with 1-9 twist. Now would be the best time.

They have a 0.860 BC I believe. Way higher than anything else I have found out there.
I hate to break it to you but brass is an alloy.....

Brass - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia




en.wikipedia.org/wiki/BrassCached - Similar
Brass is an alloy of copper and zinc; the proportions of zinc and copper can be varied to create a range of brasses with varying properties.

I have had very good luck with the 3 groove Lilja barrels and feel that it would be a good choice.

Re: Cutting edge bullets barrel rifling damage???

Hey JE. I called and talked to mr. Lilja himself Friday and he informed me that they only go up to .30 caliber in 3 groove. The .338 barrel is conventional six groove. I'm looking at around $460 minus S&H for a fluted Lila barrel that will finish at 27" with a 1-9" twist. I called my gunsmith and he said he had never used lilja. He recommended shilen or hart. I called shilen and I'm looking at around $340 minus S&H for a barrel that will finish at 28" with 1-8" twist. That is all they offer in .338 caliber other than 1-10" twist. They also don't offer fluting and if I have it fluted it voids the warranty. They say it weakens the barrel. There is a 12 week lead time with lilja and a 3-4 week lead time with shilen. Also the shilen I can get in a 4 groove or 6 groove. Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciates as I only want to do this one time. Thanks guys.

How will Cutting Edge Bullets affect my rifle barrel?
A common question that we receive from time to time is "How will the materials used by Cutting Edge Bullets affect the barrel of my rifle?" That is a very valid question.

The materials that we use to manufacture our bullets have a very high "machinability rating," which in turn are much less abrasive than the materials used by many other bullet manufacturers.

Machinability:
The term machinability refers to the ease with which a metal can be machined to an acceptable surface finish. Materials with good machinability require little power to cut, can be cut quickly, easily obtain a good finish, and do not wear the tooling much; such materials are said to be free machining.[1]

The bottom line is that the higher the machinability rating, the less wear and strain your barrel will incur.

I have shot monolithic copper bullets for many years with good results from all. This year I ordered some CE's and in my particular 300wm they shoot tighter groups than all the others I have tried. Unfortunately I haven't shot any game with them but hopefully that Will be rectified soon.
