    Hey guys,

    I am currently in the process of gathering parts for a 375 Cheytac build.
    I called and talked to Bartlen and as of right now they could not currently justify shutting down and retooling a machine for one or two .375 barrels when they have as many 6mm and 6.5 orders as they do.

    I asked them if I facilitated a group order of .375 barrels, how many barrels would need to be ordered for them to do a run? I was told they would need atleast 15 barrel orders to do the run.

    So here we go!
    If you are looking or would like to order a .375 Bartlein gain twist or constant twist, here is your chance!

    We will need at least 15 barrel orders for this to go through.

    Below is a general pricing list.
    Base Price for a .375 29" barrel blank :$395
    Oversize Breech diameter (1.450) : $75
    Add $10.00 per inch for up to 32"
    Add $15.00 per inch for barrels over 32" finish
    Gain twist barrels are extra charge and that starts at $40.
    For straight twist barrels (1-10, 1-11, 1-12 up to 1-14 no extra costs).

    If you are interested in joining this order, please shoot me a PM and I will get you on the list!

    Thanks!
    Calvin

    I would be interested in a couple. Does the price include contouring.

    Great!

    Im not terribly sure Augustus, I believe it does. I think you run into added fee when you have a larger diameter. Below is what they listed online.
    Barrel dia. larger than 1.250 S.S. up to 1.450 (29" blank) $75.00
    Barrel dia. larger than 1.300 C.M. up to 2.000 (29" blank) $60.00

    If you would like me to ask about a specific contour, just let me know what it is and I can find out!

    Thank you,
    Calvin

    It would be the old Lawton Idaho taper. My 6.5-13 gain twist has that taper, they should still have the dimensions on it. I would like them to be constant 10 twists and finish at 30 inches.

    Just got my 375 cal barrels in from bartlien a couple of months ago, not sure what the big deal is. Ordered my barrels and got them in 4 months like usual.

    Would these work on a DTA 375 ? I think I would just have to have someone tool it up with there barrel extension?
    If so the stock barrel has 1 11.5 twist what would u recommend ? It shoots the cutting edge 352gr.
    Would like to hear what u think Augustus.

    Calvin,

    Are you doing this for special pricing?

    I just don't see why the group buy unless you or the group are getting a discount.

    All that needs to be done is order the barrels. When they have enough orders on hand they retool and make the 375 cal barrels. I believe that is the same procedure for all caliber barrels because some retooling takes place.

    4 months is fairly normal in my experience. I got my barrels before my stock or my action were ready by a margin of months.
