Re: Opinion on shilen savage replacement barrels

I think the velocities are about the same as I would have expected with a regular barrel.
I have a ratched rifled and regular rifle barrel and they both shoot awesome.
I would think in a big boomer you may notice a difference in velocity or pressure.

Not all barrels are ratchet rifled.

Re: Opinion on shilen savage replacement barrels

I bought a Shilen/Savage prefit from Midway. 243 8 twist. While cleaning it the crown would rip the cleaning patch upon exiting due to burrs. So I recrowned it with their 11deg hand tool. Then I had to throat it .080 deeper to get a 105 Amax BT junction above the case neck junction.
However I am very pleased with the way it shoots and would buy another one. Of the 4 bullets I have tried, 2 look like they will hold half moa or better at 500yd. Amax and SMK

I see them as a good $300 barrel with a free 90% complete chambering job.
Shummy

I've had some buddies who have had great results with McGowen pre-fits as well.
