You are very welcome. David told me to stay away from Lost River Bore, speced barrels.

From David

"Stay away from lost river bores, that was developed by lawton machine and cheytac to shoot the hard lathe turned bullets with no driving bands. They are very unpredictable for accuracy. Most of the current lathe turned bullets have driving bands therefor you don't need a over sized bore. Jacketed bullets don't like the oversized bores either. The Lilja 10 twist barrel is very good, about 11 weeks to get one. Any barrel with a size over .366 will be difficult to get to shoot accurately or consistent. I wont guaranty any barrel of this type.
After many years of testing all the barrels and twist rates, i have discovered what works and what don't."

I sure hope he doesn't mind me posting this stuff.

GRobert, don't know if you have called Lilja directly, but they have several 1.450 and 1.350 .375 10t blanks in stock. I had previously checked their website and didn't see any. 375 blanks listed in the "in-stock barrel" area, but decided to give them a call anyway and ask a question about a particular contour and how many weeks/months it might take to have one made -- ended up getting sent to Dan Lilja's extension and left a semi-intelligent message explaining my question and kind of chalked the whole thing up to the normal "who knows maybe I'll get a call back some day from somebody there, maybe not" scenario. Anyway, happy to relate that I was more than just a little surprised to get a call back less than an hour later from Dan Lilja himself.... Dan took an inordinate amount of time to search their inventory list for every possible match for my desired size, twist and taper combination and ended up coming up with enough options that i couldn't make up my mind on the spot. Long story short - the folks at Lilja are top notch! Thanks again Dan! Now if I could just make up my mind and pull the trigger one or two of those purdy barrels! Mike D
