Who the top four is depends on who you talk to, and there location. If you did a survey in Dallas
Shillen would come out on top.
If you did the survey in New York Hart would probably be #1.
If you talk to 10 different smiths across the country you will most likely get 10 different brands.
The point is you have to decide what brand you want or go with your smiths recommendations
because he is responsible for the quality and accuracy of your rifle.
I use the barrels that consistently give me sub 1/4 MOA to sub 1/2 MOA accuracy and consistency
in quality, break in, customer service, straightness, (TIR Less than .002 end to end) heat treatment,
Its like the Chevy verses ford debate.
Just My Opinion
