Re: E R Shaw Barrels

I would use them for anything but a match rifle.

for 300yds--no problem, go for it.

might as well get the cool helicle flute while you are at it!!

I have had 3 of these barrels and they shoot very good could hit 12 oz. coke can filled with water at 500 yds. with each of them, that is with no wind.

Re: E R Shaw Barrels

I live about 1/2 hour away from E.R. Shaw...Have been to the plant several times...and have used 5 or 6 of their barrels...For your intended use they will work fine...Buy it and dont worry about it. The barrels that I had ...all were fairly accurate, in fact one in .358 that I used for a 35 Whelen AI. would shoot 225 Sierra BT'S Under a inch @ 200(3 shots) at 2750 F/SeC... hmmm come to think of it, WHY in the hell did I trade that thing??? Enjoy your new barrel. [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img]

E R Shaw Barrels

What's your opinion of the quality & service of these barrels. I have a model 7 that I want rebarreled to 20" stainless 308. Will use it for whitetails at max 300 yds but most shots will be 50 yds or under. Price is around $ 275 and I thought that wasn't bad.

Re: E R Shaw Barrels

I will ask simple question.

Why pay $275 for ER Shaw when for same money you can have a Hart, Lilja, Spencer, Broughton, or Krieger?

...bounty hunter asked the right question, definitely never pick a shaw over the ones he mentioned, anytime for the same money...

Re: E R Shaw Barrels

for 275 that must have had some fluting/fitting something--I didnt think their barrels were that expensive [img]images/icons/confused.gif[/img] more info!!

was 275 just for a sporter barrel blank?

BTW--tony boyer just used douglas barrels at the super shoot, so you might consider that for your economical barrel purchase. last time i checked, wholesale on a douglass SS match was 200$

FWIW,
JB
