Schnieder Polygonal barrels.

Had Tubb on the phone yesterday, talking about this and that, asked him if you used Scnieder barrels in his hunting rifles also, mentioned that Gary makes a polygonal rifled barrel which fouls less and is less fussy where you seat the bullet, Tubb gives his bullets a little more jump with polygonal barrel, I've heard alot of good things about these barrels, any you guys tried them yet?

Re: Schnieder Polygonal barrels.

I just got a 243 Win back from G-A Precision with a Schneider polygonal barrel. Haven't shot it enough to know it's full potential. Other polygonal barrels I've used (Pac Nor) were impressive.

Re: Schnieder Polygonal barrels.

I will be ordering one for a .300 Wby in a week from Pac Nor. From what I have heard it is extremely good. According to Tactical Ordinance they have been getting 27" barrel velocities from a 24" poly barrel. The bullet is sealed almost completely, has the same or better accuracy as a regular barrel, increased velocity. The bullet shape is distorted less because there are no lands or grooves to effect the shape. It will also last much longer because the only thing to wear it down is heat build up. THe only thing is with a regular bore brush will not turn in the rifling so a barrel mop is suggested. Also solid bullet are little earier on cleaning, but you may use what you want.

What do you mean. I got the name Nighthawk from the F117 Nighthawk Stealth Bomber from when I was in 8th grade because I thought it was cool.

Sorry to burst your bubble but you can get ballistics info off of these. Same as of a firing pin, ejector, extractor, etc. We arrest lots of idiots using Glocks and the have the poly barrels. Science is great and stupid criminals are even better.

Re: Schnieder Polygonal barrels.

That is just what I read off a website compairing the two kinds of rifling. No I wasn't planning on pulling anything either.
