Re: douglas barrell quality?
My dad had a 300 winchester rebareled into a 30-378 and that douglas barrel shot like crap. Plain and simple it just wouldn't shoot. I have my doubt it was the smith because he is well known around here for building accurate rifles. I personally would spend more money for either a hart or lilja. I'm sure others may feel diferently though.
I dont know who ever came up with the imaganary word of "Over Gunned"
