    I have had 6 of them and having nothing but praise. I think that they are the best for the money. There are many good barrels out there but benchmarks are hard to beat for the price. What I like the most about benchmark is that you talk to the owner when ordering and it is only a 3 man operation. Ron will take care of you of there is ever a problem. I think that they are right up there with hart shielen, and most top brand button rifled barrels. I just ordered another one /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif So they can't be that bad

    Sorry to resurect an old thread but I just ordered a fluted, 26", 3-groove, stainless, 7mm, 1:9 twist, chambered in 7wsm, threaded for savage, and muzzle threaded for brake. These guys are located 15 min from my home, I got to tour their shop and they explained in detail how they make these barrels. They were very hospitable, they went above and beyond, and are altogether great guys. I didn't plan on it when I drove up there, but I couldn't resist ordering a barrel right there on the spot! It's great to have a high-quality barrel maker right in my own backyard. Can't wait to send some rounds down this barrel!

    P.S. They can do cut-rifle barrels too.
