Remington Barrel Oddity

I have a Rem. 700 in 338 Ultra that has a weird pattern of "waves" in the bbrl. It appears to be only on the bottom of the grooves, not on the lands. What's up? Some kind of tooling chatter when it was hammer forged? Is this common? Will it affect accuracy?

Thx!

Re: Remington Barrel Oddity

Any deviation in a barrel bore is undesirable. Remingtons' current production looks (thru a Hawkeye Bore Scope) to be much better than in the recent past. Only shooting will tell if your barrel is accurate enough for you or not. Those marks could be from the inital drilling of the blank or the forging process.

Re: Remington Barrel Oddity

I'm hoping it will prove to shoot OK despite the irregularity. I doubt Remington would consider replacing it unless it shoots horribly. Has anyone else seen this on Rem. bbrls?

Re: Remington Barrel Oddity

What you're seeing is typical of factory barrels. They can not and should not be expected to be "custom quality" for a factory price.
