    Made a call to Brux Barrels to ask a few questions about twist rate ect. I had the distinct pleasure of talking to Mr Ken Liebetrau, one of the owners! Wow! Nice guy, did not try and rush me , answered all my questions. THAT MY FRIENDS IS CUSTOMER SATISFACTION at its finest! He told me I could get a .277 #9 couture ,in 8 twist, 4 groove for 300 bucks, and he is shipping an extra piece of the same diam stainless so my smith can make a brake AND a tread protector for when I dont want the break on. Needless to say , I now have a Brux Barrel on order. The only company that either answered or took the time was Brux. They now have a customer for life.
    BTW , I have another tread on this subject , called eenie meenie miny mo

    I spent some time with Ken this summer in SD shooting pd's. Nice enough fellow, and their barrels are shooting well. I'm sure you'll be happy with their product.

    I was going to go with a Benchmark but everytime i tried calling, there was only a recording. The website did not have any info on it. I am sure that every maker of barrels out there makes a quality tube.It's just I am a very hands on,personal kinda guy. when am going to spend money on something that I have spent the last Year or better researching, comparing ect, I like to talk with some one and that is what I got. So, thank You Ken and Brux. Should have my barrel in 4-6 month. Just about the time i will need it.
