So, I am saving up to buy a new barrel for my Savage 11 .308. I decided to go with a 26in heavy sporter barrel, because, even though it is a little long and heavy for carrying around the MN woods, I'll be in a stand most of the time. I want to be able to get a little more velocity out of my .308 handloads. I decided to do the rebarrel myself, because I want to get the experience of doing that. I narrowed my search down to 3 barrel brands, and 2 sources and want some opinions. First I am looking at Shilen and Brux barrels, and getting the barrel through Sin Arms. The other option is to get a Benchmark Barrel direct from Benchmark. Prices are all fairly close with the Shilen quoted on the low end and the Benchmark and Brux being quoted very similarly. I've done a bunch of research on the barrels and am at a point where I am totally stuck because all 3 options seem very good. Thoughts?
