Re: McGowen Barrels

I built a .280AI last summer, McGowen #4 contour stainless fluted on a Remington 700. It will shoot 1/2 MOA all day long to 500yards with 140 Accubonds and 168 Custom Competition bullets. Waiting on another barrel from them for the next project.

Paraphrasing what Kirby Allen noted in an older similar thread "true but it never hurts".

I too am a Savage fan; I have a custom PT&G bolt head ordered for my. 270 AI.
