Re: best 6.5 prefit barrel for savage LA
My Savage 112 started life as a 22-250. I had Fred Mareno at Sharpshooter Supply in Ohio chamber a Douglas 28" pre-fit barrel and I shot it in competition until it began to open up at 1200 rounds. This barrel shot great and won many matches. I decided to replace it with a PacNor pre-fit, with same twist, length and dimensions. This barrel shoots terrible. Returned it to PacNor, they said nothing wrong with it (BS) and now it sits here with 200 rounds down the pipe.
Go to Fred; he is a good gunsmith and works exclusively on Savage rifles.
