I've not yet owned one. Note, the key word is 'YET'!

They were popular among benchrest shooters back when I was doing it. Sounds like they still are good barrels.

Nothing better than a one hole barrel that cleans real easy too

Re: Schneider Rifle Barrels?

Some competitors have used Schneider as well as Shilen barrels. They shoot just as accurate as current Brux, Border, Kreiger and Obermeyer barrels. Only problem I've heard about them is they wear out about twice as fast as Kreiger or Obermeyer barrels. Don't know what the barrel life is on Brux and Border barrels.

Re: Schneider Rifle Barrels?

I have NEVER heard of Schneider wearing out twice as fast as ANY barrel maker, but do know that he has a contract with the military on suppling them with his barrels on some applications!!! I'm having Kampfeld Customs putting one on a 25-06 as I type!!!!!! Gary makes GREAT tubes that seems to pick up quite a few fps over some I have and seen!!!
