David told me "Only barrels with a .366 grove dia, 375 bore". He told me the barrel should be 10 twist and he prefers stainless by either Lilja, Kreiger, or Bartlein. His prefered barrel is the Bartlein gain twist barrel, but he said that nothing can be had from Bartlein at the present. They told him a year and half before they could get around to making and 375 blanks.
I would like to caution that I am a total newbie to this type of shooting and David went through a bunch of info with me regarding the barrel bore and groove specs in relation to the type of projectile being used. I would just sound like I had no clue what I was talking about if I tried to remember and relay that info here, so I would recommend talking with David about that to make sure you plan to use projectiles that mate well with the barrel spec he prefers.
Hope this helps.
