Re: 502yd doe

Nice shooting.

How do you like the Brux barrels? I talked with them not long after they started up. I realize not all barrels are made equal but if you were to obtain one barrel each from Krieger, Rock, Brux, Obermeyer, and Bartlein barrels, each of them telling you their barrel was made from one of the better batches of steel they've received, is, in your opinion, there a small or substantial difference in them?

Or I could put it this way, would you be satisfied with one of those companies for all of your cut-rifle barrel needs?

Re: 502yd doe

If I am asked for a barrel recomendation I use Brux. I have not had a bad one yet. With that said I have not had a bad Krieger either. Both have shot very well for me. I have not used the 2 other ones yet. I have a Rock Creek on order for a build. We are building 2 guns just alike except for the barrels. One will have a Krieger and one Rock Creek.It will be interesting to see if we can tell the differance. I built a 6.5x284 with a Broughton and it also shot well. If a customer wants a certain barrel then that's what I get for him. I haven't seen a lot of differance between any of the name brands. Dan
