    I have a .284 Lilja barrel that shoots extremely well, but have read a couple complaints an the .277 barrel from Lilja having accuracy issues.

    Anyone have a .270wsm 10 twist they can comment on?

    lI have two Liljas a 10 twist in 270 Win and an 8 twist in 270 AM.

    The 270 Win is consistently 'milk jug' accurate to 700 yds. Smallest group, still on the fridge is 3 shots into 0.110 ctc.

    The 270 AM is 'yote' accurate to 1400, so far, on rocks:rolleyes: After ~850 rounds and a dose of a treatment, 2 out of 3 shots hit the 'penny' at 200 yds. The third shot didn't miss by much.

    Of all of the variables associated with re-barreling I would suggest the Lilja barrel is the least variable. However, there are those exceptions.

    I would find it very hard to believe Kirby Allen would use Lilja barrels, even in .277 if they weren't very accurate.
