    I used a chrome molly version for a 6-284 once. It was ok, but not steller. I have not bought another as I have became very fond of Hart and Broughtons.

    Agree with Jeff! I had one on a 6.5 A.I. and it was "ok". For the little savings in initial cost, get a good barrel.....Rich

    IMO they are better than most factory barrels but not as good as the premium custom barrels.

    I have had very good luck with Lilja, Kriger, Hart, Brux, Shillen and Broughton.

    The barrel is not the place to save money, a poor quality barrel will end up costing you
    much more.

    This is just my opinion and in no way intended to poor mouth E R Shaw. A lot of people
    are happy with them.

    Both good choices but a Sherman will give you more horsepower in either with the same case.......Rich
