Re: Rock Creek vs. Hart vs. lilja
[QUOTE=Fiftydriver;229636]If you get a top end barrel from any of the makers already listed, on average, the machining to fit the barrel, the chamber quality, the receiver trueness and the bedding quality will make a bigger difference in accuracy then the brand of barrel on the rifle.
Simply put, get a good barrel and then its on your smith to make a rifle that shoots. The barrels most often will. That said, I have seen samples from nearly every maker listed that had problems but they are pretty rare with the top makers.
Take your pick to be honest.
Man that is the truth... You are TRULY AT THE MERCY OF YOUR SMITH. I agree that it is MUCH MORE dependent on your gunsmith, so much more...
