Re: Douglas Barrels
Thumbs up on Kevin's comments regarding the gunsmith you use.
Currently, I have a 20" Douglas featherweight barrel on a 98 Mauser in 7mm-08 deer rifle. . It shoots great, considering the barrel is thin as a pencil. Several years ago, I bought a Douglas 26" fluted target barrel from Sharpshooter Supply and had them chamber it in 6.5-284 fitted to my Savage 110 action. It shot very well until the throat went out around 1,200 rounds.
Lately for long range groundhog matches, I have been buying cut rifled barrels, but nothing wrong with a Douglas. They have been around forever.
