    I have a Savage with a 243AI with over 1800 rounds and it still shoots in the 2's throat is a little worn. I have another barrel that I switch to and it is in a 220 Swift and it shoots in the 2's. If you are looking for just a good hunting rifle barrel they OK in my book.
    If I was building a competitive bench rifle I would not have a Douglas. The finish in the bore is a little rough compared to other manufacturers to begin with. But still alot better than a factory rifle. They have been around a long time.
    If I was building from the action up I would opt for a Hart (30cal) or Kreiger. My 2c.

    Do a search this item has already been discussed. Not a bad barrel though.

    thanks for the info. I am planning to build from a Rem 700 short action with some trigger work but not much else and of course a barreland a custom thumbhole pistol grip stock. I am going to build a 30BR with a 22" barrel for deer, yotes and sage rats. don't really want a bench rest but want good accuracy to maybe 500 yards for yotes.
    thanks for the input, I will look at previous forum stuff.

    the savings is probably less than 100.00 compared to hart, shillen, etc. Depends on how much 100.00 means to you. My cousin had a 22-250 in one of there air-gauged barrela shot well. Also a guy name Melvin Forbes from ultra-light arms builds all of his guns on a douglas barrel. There the 5 1/4 lb guns with a scope mounted.

    Douglas barrels should more than do what you are asking for IMO.
