My next barrel, gonna have ta rebarrel shortly, will be the Schneider polygonal, I suppose that could be the P5 if they make one that will finish 30" and fluted.

If not it'll be a Pac Nor polygonal.

Rock Creek in every respect.
Cut rifled, radiused lands.

Schneider 'polygonal' is nothing but radiused lands. Or,, worn button.
Wouldn't surprise me from Schneider..

I am very happy with my Rock Creek. I have a 30" on my 338edge. It shoots better than me and broke in and cleans very easily. I have a pic of my 338edge with the barrel in the gun photos forum.
