the rifles shot itty bitty groups.
Just my two cents worth.
It a good point but without one sometimes its hard to figure out whats wrong with a rifle
that wont shoot.

If it shoots you just have to the temptation to replace it and get over how bad it looks and
keep shooting it.

I have a 17" and would not take for it. I have found many problems with it that otherwise
would have gone undetected.

It is also a good way to evaluate a new barrel( factory or custom) before break in.
