Re: Proof Research Barrels
I sent them a 20 cal barrel , it was ready to be wrapped. I had Bartlein turn the barrel to the old taper specs for ABS. Will try to get Pics up for it. When i first made contact it was with Linsey Bengston. She was very nice person to talk with. If she could not answer any question, she had someone get me it. The barrel came to me this week. So they said 2 weeks, it was there and back in 2 weeks.
Can not wait to get this one done. There web site does need some work, but Linsey said they are working on it . They have a barrel maker from Montana in house. His barrel are holding there own at Matches already. They say at this time 12 weeks or so on all barrels. If they get more orders it will be longer.
So I found they can do a 1-7 on a 7mm for me this for my 7mm/338 Norma mag improved. Want to use this with a 192 gr Cutting Edge bullet. Needs a fast twist to get to work. They also will place the carbon end at a spot for your muzzle brake or there's. But you may still need a gunsmith to thread it.
I believe I will also get the stock on a Defiance action done. If you want there stock send them you gun they match to there stock. Because the stock dries around the action and lug. so it is not a drop in fit.
Hope this helps
