Have you had any experience with Obermeyer barrels.
he cuts the groves deeper than others.
example= .274 for 7mm and .298 for 308.
I agree that fitting and chambering makes
the most difference but with so many barrel
makers and manufacturing techniques it makes
it difficult to chose what's best for the
customer's caliber and usage.
No I have never personally fitted one of these barrels. I have heard nothing but good about them, especially in 30 cal barrels but never used one.
For my 30 cal barrels I generally will use a Lilja 1-10 4 groove or a Rock 5R.
Like you said, there are so many good barrels out there its hard to try them all. I find ones perform to my specs or better and stick with them just to take some pressure off my feable mind trying to remember what barrels I use for what chamberings!! [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]
Again, I have heard nothing but good about the Obermeyer barrels, just never used one.

With this list of recomended barrels I should
be in good shape,
I like to make recommendations to the customer
based on what would be best for there type of
Some times long delivery may be a problem for
the customer so another brand of barrel of
equal quality may be available.
Like fiftydriver I tend to stick with what works
but I hate having all of my eggs in one basket.
Most people dont want to wait 2years for a custom
rifle.When the though pops into there head it makes
for a good experience if you can hand them a finished
rifle in 2or3 months. And fun is what it's all about.
Quality and service from all of the component manufactures
is what it takes to make this happen.
I have read some horror stories on this and other sites
that could have been prevented if the customer and the
smith were on the same page befor starting the project.
