    I would buy a frame and order a custom barrel from MGM or bullberry etc. The TC barrels are kind of a crapshoot. The likely hood of getting a bad one from the custom shop is probably less but buying the frame and a custom barrel is not that much more expensive. I have a pro hunter frame with a mgm 350 rem mag barrel that shoots under an inch. Mine is totaly stock no hanger bar or oversized hinge pin.

    I have two barrels for mine both are just TC barrels. My .243 shoots .300 with my 80 grain Sierra Blitz reloads and my .280 shoots .80 with 140 grain Nosler BT's. I have been using rl17 with good luck. I don't know what factory loads would do since I have never shot factory rounds in any of my personal guns. Good luck choosing a barrel, factory or custom, and the cartridge of your choice...

    I have the pro-hunter and 2 factory barrels. My .223 is a slow-twist (1 in 12") and seems to be incredibly-accurate, but that's with 40-grainers. I'm not a good enough shot to know about the '06 yet (recoil-shy...)

    Check out Mike Belm (website) , some people with a re-worked Bergara barrel get 0.1" groups. These guns are VERY sensitive to proper headspacing, which is measured much differently than with a bolt-gun. They will shoot if things are right, no doubt about it...

    280AI sounds great...

    I 2nd Cajun on this one. MGM, Match Grade Machines really make good barrels for really no more that a factory T.C barrel would cost you. I had them make me a SS Shilen 14" Contender pistol barrel in 30-30AI that is outstanding in the accuracy department. Well under 1" at 100 yards.

    I have a ProHunter in 280 rem, and it will not shoot ANY factory loads under an inch. Have gotten good results with some 4350 and 150gr Siroccos though. If i did it again, i'd either go with the Ackley or 7mm STW from MGM
