Even the guys we shoot with just laughed at the good fortune.
Well, it is your decision and it sounds like you will be moving forward with a build. I hope you are correct that no metallurgic changes occurred.
I recommend an 11 twist or 11.25 twist barrel. This is the #1 choice twist in 30 caliber competition. My next 30 cal barrel will be 11 twist. I have an Obermeyer D-3 contour on my 308 and love it.
There are multiple repeated rumors on many forums that Rock barrels are among the very best ever in 30 caliber. I read and see it time and time again. So, that is where I'll be getting my next 2 30 cals in 11 twist (if offered), in 5R rifling.
We'll see what happens.
