    Hey just wanted to tell everyone we are currently 3-4 weeks out on barrel blanks! If you have wanted to try one of our barrels this may be the time.

    Good to know! 3-4 weeks is amazingly short for a top quality barrel. Thanks for posting this.

    Give me your best pitch. Of all the barrel to choose from, why would I pick yours?

    Crank up your Google Fu. The internet is full of happy Benchmark customers. I've never seen anyone have problems with their barrels or customer service.

    I have not owned one personally but have seen 5 different rifles shoot all with benchmark barrels and they all have shot well.

    That's right. There are a bunch of great barrel makers. Benchmark is one of them.

    What exactly do you think he is going to tell you?

    They make a premium grade barrel that is as good as all the rest of the premium barrel makers.

    The thing that makes them stand out from the others is that you can get one quicker than the others at the moment.

    There is no reason for me to speculate about what he is going to tell me. All I need to do is wait for him to answer my question.

    I'm not in a hurry to buy but if I were I could buy many other brands tomorrow.

    Nice attitude - pretty sure you could have a pretty good beard growth before a manufacturer of anything would respond to an attitude like that.

    My best answer is because benchmarks are what i shoot, i can install any barrel on the market. But i choose benchmark barrels. No way will i bad mouth any other manufacturers barrels, there are many great one to choose from. Ive shot benchmarks since 2002, ive worked there since 2009. But don't take my word for it, try one.
    By the way thanks for the awesome replys!

    Good answer Chris!

    Cheers!

    ADDED: Here's test on video by LRH member Lucas Beitner (hopefully he'll chime in) @ 900+ yards ...

    Looks pretty awesome to me!

    NOTE: Lucas authored the awesome article on .270 Win >>> http://www.longrangehunting.com/forums/f5/270-win-long-range-shooting-86901/. He was also using a Benchmark barrel to harvest a very nice muley buck.

    I own a very accurate long range rifle, in 7mm wsm, that was built by Kevin Rayhill of Nebraska. He highly recommended a benchmark barrel to me prior to the build so I went with it and could not be happier. As for a sales pitch, consistent sub 1/2 moa accuracy !

    Thanks to all the guys chiming in! After long thought here is my sales pitch: Jamie Grey took gold and set a new world record at the Olympics this year with our 22RF barrel. Guess we must be doing something right :D
