Re: Rebarrel or Rechamber my .243 Ackley?
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.
