Schneider never in the winner circle? Tubb uses only Schneider barrels as does the US Army for the M24 sniper rifle. And we all know that Tubb can't shoot and never wins!!! [img]images/icons/wink.gif[/img]

    Chris-- When did the M24 start coming with Schneider barrels? I was under the impression that ALL M24 SWS were made by Remington and had their 5R hammer forged barrels. The first M24's had Mike Rock barrels, but they were replaced with the Remington tubes because Mike couldn't meet production demands. I have researched the M24 from its inception and have never heard of the M24 SWS having Schneider barrels. I'm not busting your balls, I'm just curious as to when Remington purchased and aftermarket barrels for their rifles...

    You are right that Tubbs uses schneiders and the MC is using them on the M40a3 they are building here at Quantico. However, the accuracy standards are different for sniper rifles, High power and 1k BR guns. Most sniper and high power guns are built to .5 MOA and there are a lot of barrels that will do that. 1k BR guns are built to be under .25 MOA. My Spencer in 300wsm routinely goes into .100-.200. 1k BR has the smallest groups and highest standards and you never see schneider barrels on a 1k gun, look at all the websites. Tubbs website lists best results for Tubbs 2000 rifle in 308 at .5 MOA and .2-.3 for 6BR out of a machine rest, while the 6 BR with a different barrel and a BR gun routinely goes into .100-.200 or less from a rest and "hand driven".

    Bottom line, for whatever reason they are not used in 1k guns other than highpower. So if you are building a highpower rifle, use a schneider. If I want the most accurate known barrels out there, I am going to pick something else.

    G Schneider are very good even if they are not very popular but I far prefer to shoot with a Schneider than to shoot with another brand make in real big company with several quality and just the name of the company owner on .

    I dont think that 40X barrel came from Remington , they probaly subcontract from Douglas .

    When you check original specs of the M 24 , no need of match barrel to reach this level of specs .

    last sniper rifle from REM , the Egystian contract are 1.5 inch at 200 yards on 5 shots , nothing really amazing .

    good shooting

    Does anyone have experience with the 7wsm? I am open to look at a better caliber.

    Excuse me while I pull my head out of my butt! Schneider's are on the Marine Corp M40A3 not the Army's. My bad!!
    But still like Dantec said, do you want a barrel from a one man shop who takes pride in his work or from a big name with guys making minimun wage cranking out barrels as fast as they can?
