Brux barrel in 22-243

bought a Brux barrel a while back someone here recomended it because i needed a barrel fast to get ready for prarie dog season well they broke a boring bit so it took about 3 weeks longer than they said but stuff happens and i understand but why does it always when im in a rush lol they were very curtious though and kept me up to date at all times

as far as quality goes i think they make a very good product i ordered a 30" 1x8"twist stainless barrel that tapered from 1.25 for 6" then to .900 at muzzle and since this was my only my third time rebarreling a rifle from a blank and my first time trueing an action i was really scared that i would mess it up ,but i am pretty familiar with a lathe so i just took my time and thought alot about what i was doing before i did it anyway here is a picture of my rifle villagephotos


here are the first two 5 shot groups after break in villagephotos


this was my starting load 40 grns H 4831 behind a 75grn A-max it avged 3180 fps i ended up pushing it up to 44 grns with an avg of 3470 fps i wanted to get to 3600 fps but i just could not make it without alot of pressure my biggest 5 shot group of the day was .870 but i shot many more .3 ,.4 and .5 groups than anything i probably shot 15 groups and was happy with almost all of them i found myself getting mad when i shot groups in the .6 and .7 range lol

someone said when i posted a question about brux barrels to let them know how it turned out i hope i have done that they seem to be very high quality to me


Thank you to whoever suggested i get one ,



Brian

I ordered one in 7mm 9 twist, MTU Contour for a future project. Turn around time was about 2 weeks. Communication was great, good guys to deal with. It will be a while before I have it chambered, but I am certain it will be a good barrel.

Re: Brux barrel in 22-243

You may want to try some 80 grain Hornady A-maxes too. They are very sleek. I know you can get 3600 FPS with the 22-243 75 and 80 grain pills. The fastest powders in 22-250 ackley 22-243 were RL 22 and 7828. I am going to be trying ramshot magnum soon in a 22-243 ackley, ill let you know how it works out. Try some 7828 SSC and i bet you ll have the speed and accuracy you want. Got to love those fast 22' slinging high B.C bullets. Nice rifle
