McGowen Barrels ??

Thinking of buying a pre-threaded McGowen barrel for my Savage 243. Have no experience with this company. Can anyone comment on the accuracy of McGowen barrels?

I have one on a Savage Model 12 in 300 WSM. It is a 26" bull barrel. Shoots really well and cleans easily. No complaints. I am thinking or getting another one for another Savage.

My latest is the 7-300 win mag AI

As stated in the above quote, it really cleans easy help me say easy...

Mine is a 28" for 338 Edge or 338/300 RUM, as many know is the same
cartridge with different names. Savage 110 action. Not only its easy to clean but from the prone position using Harris bi-pod it's a solid under 1/2 MOA shooter.
