Hart makes a darned good barrel, I use them as my "go to' supplier for blanks. As for your chambering requirements, you'd have to ask them.

Rock Creek makes some really nice barrels, too.

I checked rock creek and they look like they want out of business . I won't be taking any chances. I want a reputation with an achieved gunsmith. I ll look around for a bit but tending towards old fashion hart

Re: what barrel ??

A very reputable builder out of GA is my friend's brother. He's also a former Army sniper, and still teaches at the Army Sniper School @ Ft Benning. Just a few months back he was recommending Mike's (Rock Creek) barrels... Not saying they are not out of business, b/c this economy can get anyone, but it would have had to have been a recent closing. He also said that Rock Creeks are the only barrels he'll put on any of his rifles, unless you pay for another brand up front, then he will order you whatever you want.

I'll check with him to see if they still are in business, b/c this has now piqued my curiosity.

You might need to look a little harder they are not out of business. It depends on what you are looking for the best or good enough. Go look on www.bugholes.com and there you will find the best bbl makers.
