    Time for a new barrel for my .300 Win Mag Sendaro. Looking at several of the offerings out there Brux seems to be significantly less expensive (around $100 less). Has anyone used their barrels and how did it perform in the areas of accuracy, cleaning, fit and finish. I was contemplating a Lilja or Rock Creek, but saving $100 buys a lot of components.

    Lets hear it,

    just had one put on my custom 260 and it is great. first 5 shot group was .510 outside to outside so subtract .264 from that and that is my group.
    cleans so smooth that you won't believe it.
    My gun smith said that the barrel was the best he had ever seen and he is a huge Kreiger Fan. He has also put on some Saturns and some sheilan's and few others.
    would not hesitate to order another one

    I decided to go with a Brux barrel for my custom build with Center Shot Rifles. I don't have it yet, it should be done sometime soon. I'm willing to bet that you will be very satisfied.

    Brux are superb! The interupted fluting is a heck of a nice looking option too. Nate at Straight Shot Gunsmithing has loads of expereince with them. Might send him an email.

    3 shots / sub 1.5" group at 720 yards with a Brux barrel this past weekend.
    I own 4 Brux barrels.

    A big plus is the short lead time in getting it

    I have 2 in operation now with 1 on order. My gunsmith was and still is a huge fan of Kreiger, but now he is fast becomeing a Brux fan. Plus it is nice not having to wait 6 to 9 months on a barrell. I give them 2 thumbs up.
