    I've heard good things, but have no personal experience with them.

    I have been using ABS wrapped, Satern barrels for going on 2 years. I have also used alot of Rock barrels. The Satern barrels are every bit as good, in fact, they are better lapped then the Rock and take alot less barrel break-in. The Satern's use a 5R style rifling, VERY similar to the Rock profile. Satern is using cutters styled after the Obemeyer cutters.

    ABS has started using Satern barrels as well as continuing to use Rock barrels, in order to keep up with demand. I only use Rock or Satern in all my custom rifles, and have no problem getting either to shoot .2-.3" groups in hunting rifles.

    I don't think you will be dissappointed, I sure haven't been.

    I hope ABS didn't act like this was a mistake and it's the first time it's ever happened, because it's not. I don't know how long you were waiting but I understand at some point it's just, "Yeah, OK. Satern? Whatever, just send me something...."

    When I checked around I didn't get great reviews and I have no personal experiance with Satern; but Bettin does purchase quite a few a year.
