Douglas Barrels

Anyone have any experience with Douglas Barrels. I live relatively close to this facility and am considering trying out one of their barrels. I know Douglas used to be a big name in custom barrels but its been quite awhile since Ive heard them mentioned.

Re: Douglas Barrels

I have 3 rifles built with Douglas bbls, made a "while" ago, but all very good shooters.

Re: Douglas Barrels

I have one on my 7mag, it wasn't lapped or anything so it took a little more work to get it to stop fouling so bad but it shoots great. I don't believe they lap them though so (mine wasn't) I would opt for one that is hand lapped.

Being competent with a given rifle is far more important than impressive ballistics and poor shootability. High velocity misses never put a steak in the freezer.

Re: Douglas Barrels

The barrels shoot great...............I have 2 and like both of them. I know a lot of guys that shoot them in the wv 1000yd benchrest matches. If I was going to buy one today I would definately order a douglas who wants to wait 28 weeks for a kreiger?
