    So only four weeks after placing my order I received my new McGowan barrel today! It is a 26", match stainless, with 1:9" twist, .800 at the muzzle, with a target recessed crown.

    The base rifle is a Savage 111 in 7mmRemMag.
    I also have for the project:
    Nightforce NXS 5.5-22X56 with NP-R2 reticle
    Nightforce one piece 20MOA base
    Nightforce ultralite 1.125" rings
    Harris S-series bipod 9-13" legs
    Blackhawk cheek elevator
    A pound of H-1000
    Winchester brass
    Federal magnum primers
    Sierra matchking 168gr. Bullets


    Can't wait to get to the range!!!

    McGowen has been making some killer barrels. I've had two from them recently that both shoot under 0.5 MOA. I don't think you'll be disappointed.
