What barrel Hart or Shilen

I have had quite a few Hart barrels earlier on rifle builds and never had a Shilen. Putting togeather a 25 WSM on Rem 700 going to be 25" , factory contour. Had good luck with Hart's was wondering about a Shilen ss match grade. Does anyone see any difference in the 2 companies?

    I would go with the Hart barrel if you've had good success with them in the past. I use and reccomend them.

    I have had very good luck with both and ether would be good.

    Hart was making stainless barrels when few other barrel makers would .

    Shillen has made barrel for some of the best shooters I have.

    Currently Lilja is making all of my barrels because of quality from barrel
    to barrel. And the Lilja bores are second to none in finish and tolerances.

    Just my opinion

    I just ordered a Hart this morning. I used to shoot with the Hart's and had at least 8-9 of there barrels. All of them could out perform me. Thanks for your input.
