A friend just finished 2nd overall in two gun(LV and HV) 600 and 1000yd. NBRSA Nationals this weekend(Uses the same rifle for everything). Also got his 11th World Record pending and he was shooting a Krieger barrel. He has a new Brux also.

Re: Compition Barrels?

I shoot Kriegers and love them but several friends of mine are using, Rock Creek, Bartleins, Brux, Broughtons, etc. and they all seem to shoot very well. Most custom barrels will shoot well if the rifle is put together correctly. With that being said, when I have a rifle built I look for Krieger barrels first because i've had such good luck with them.

Re: Compition Barrels?

I have shot all those listed above, except Brux, and that may be my next order. But there are exceptions and even a Krieger or Bartlien might wind up as a tomato stake. If not chambered and fit up well, the barrel usually gets the blame. One of the worse I ever had was a pre-fit PacNor in 6.5-284 on a Savage. Sent it back, they said nothing wrong with it, but it was a duplicate of my old Douglas, and shot terrible. 325 rounds and I gave up.
