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