Lead times on match barrels ???????

Guys, has it always taken 16-20 weeks to get a stainless match barrel ? I am looking for a 243 Win in 1:8 twist varmint contour. Either for a large ring Mauser or for a Savage 10 / Axis. Barrels at Midway or Brownells tend to be Chrome Moly or the few they have in stainless are 1:10.

So far, Shilen, ER Shaw etc are in the 4-5 month window it seems.

Am I missing someone obvious ?

Thanks for the tip. Those stiller actions look good too.

You can have a Hart blank in 8-10 weeks.

They are very good. Even better, readily available. Genesears has a few as well.

Depends when you place your order and the how busy the barrel makers are. I placed my order at Lilja in Jan and got it in 12 weeks as promised.

Yes, you are missing the obviuos,,,,,, custom barrels are in demand, like never before! Hart makes only blanks, no pre-threaded and chambered barrels. Your shortest route would be to buy a blank 'off the shelf' from a vendor and have a 'smith T,C,&C it for you.
