New Action What Barrel???

Hi
I just ordered one of Jim Bordens new actions. The bolt face will be for the WSMs. I think I'm going to chamber for the 300WSM I would like to shoot 165gr - 200gr bullets. What twist and which barrel maker do you recomend.
Thanks

I have heard lilja is good and I have some friends that swear by Hart. Krieger is also good I hear.

You won't go wrong w/Lilja, Hart, Pac-Nor, Kreiger, Rock, Broughton, etc, etc, etc. I don't have as much experience w/them as others, but I think it's six of one and half a dozen of the other.

I also just caught Jim as he got home today and got his last Alpine of his first production run (whew! [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/tongue.gif[/img]).The Alpine is getting a 6mm Lilja 3 groove 12" twist that Lilja now stocks, (on its way already),for a 6mm AI.And the Timberline will get a Broughton 5C 10" for a 338-300.
I'd agree with BH for choice on your gun with those bullet weights.
