    I had one Shilen tube chambered in 300Wby , it shot great but went away fast!!! Shilen uses 8 lands and grooves and I believe that they use softer steel.
    I have a Lilja , Hart , Pac-nor and had a Shilen , all four guns shot just as well as the other , the Pac-nor and Lilja seem to be either a little harder steel or the three groove barrels just last longer cause they show less throat wear.
    Personaly all my barrels are going to be Pac-Nors from now on , you just can't beat their price.

    I can't speak for how fast they go away but I have a Shillen that I like a lot so far. I really can't immagine any brand name barrel being a bad investment. I'd place more blame on the owner than on the barrel for it's performance.
    If you have something that you disassemble and reassemble enough times, sooner or later, you'll have two!

    Why do you want a barrel made of 416R. While the 17-4 steel is the most corrosion resistant on the market and have shown3X extension in throat life and top accuracy.
    It is probably easier to buy a Lothar Walther barrel in Norway than US made and for long term you will probably get a barrel that will give you accuracy for longer period of time!!! [img]images/icons/shocked.gif[/img]
