Re: New barrel

Broughton barrels is another great barrel. Go to BR central and check on advertisers under barrels.

Tim North just bought the company is turning out a 5C rifling that is like the Obermyer and Rock 5R.

His barrels are winning everything right now and breaking records.

Just ordered two myself.

Re: New barrel

Any manufacturer listed on the BRcentral site will make an excellent barrel. Of course, there are differing opinions on who is the "best" but that is a chevy ford debate.

These barrel makes should have no problem making what you want.

Another type to consider are the Adams&Benett and ER Shaw barrels. These are not lapped but usually shot very well. A bit of time hand lapping and you will have very serviceable performance. Best part is they are usually 1/2 the price of the match barrels.

My A&B barrels have all shot sub MOA...
