    Criterion 6.5x47 Lapua 28” barrel – Savage Large Shank – 149 Documented Rounds. Just broken in. Looks to be a very accurate barrel. Cost $340 Shipped from Northland Shooting Supplies. It is this barrel: 28" - Stainless Match - Large Shank - Bull - 6.5x47 Lapua - 8 Twist.

    $285 Shipped.

    I got the barrel in a recent gun deal, and it came on the gun with 19 rounds fired. I only had 2 weeks to find loads, with what I could get hold of, to shoot at a 1,000 yard fun shoot. I used RL15 and 130 Berger VLDs. Also played with 123 Amax. I was able to hit over and over again at fairly small targets at 1,025 lased yards, including a spray paint can, and all around that can before hitting it. Steady wind all day. I also hit 3” from the center of a bull on a paper target at about 1,050 yards with the only shot I took at paper. Would like to keep, but have to sell to pay for other recent purchases.

    All the following available to barrel buyer first, and then to those requesting them. All will be sold at a discount to what they can be found for online:
