I use Shilen a lot for barrels and they shoot great.
As to having them barrel your action I would agree with james
that a good gunsmith would probably be best.Not that Shilen
would not do a good job.
The only thing that might make a difference would be the time
it takes some smiths to get your rifle to you(some times 1 to 2
years) where as Shilen would/could probably give you a shorter
If shilen has the barrel I need in stock then I normaly order from
them, if not then I use Lilja . Lilja barrels are as good as they get
and the delivery is the best of any barrel maker.
I have used many other brands of barrels (hart,douglas,kreiger and
others if the client requested with good results .
I dont think you can go wrong with a shilen if they will give you a
good price and good delivery date but I would check around first
and see what others offer.
Good luck on your build
