    after hearing about their actions I don't think I'd even bother with their barrels.
    for the money look at Pac-Nor or better yet spend a few more dollars and get a Lilja , Rock , Creek , Kreiger , Hart , Broughton or any of the others that have a standing rep.

    Wasnt too long ago a guy brought me a Montana bbl and action, brand new, it was chambered for 300wsm if i remember right, the chamber was .100 short. I showed him the problem so he sent it back. Was returned to him about a month later all fixed, acording to them. He took it out to work up some loads, the shells came out looking differnt than when they went in. The chamber was now too deep, about .075 He then said screw it im not sending it back again so i shortened the bbl tennon and headspaced it.

    Thanks for the info guys. Sounds like it's better to spend a little more $$ and get one of the better brands.
