    Up for sale is a fluted #3 barrel in a 1:9 twist. The barrel has a finished length of 27” and has a Benchmark “Mini Miller” muzzle break in it. The brakecwas threaded by Benchmark. It was chambered in 7mm WSM by RW Snyder. The throat is lengthened for long bullets, and with 175 ELD-X’s it’s about 3.050 to the lands. This barrel has about 250 rounds through it. It’s currently cerakote Dad Coyote Tan. I could never get the gun to shoot accurately consistently. It would print a .1 group one trip to the range and 1” on the next, so I ordered a new barrel to start over. As it turned out, when the new smith went to spin this barrel off it was not even hand tight, so that was likely the issue. If you’re interested make me an offer.

    I should add, my smith ran a scope through it and it looks like new inside, no chamber or rifling issues according to him.

    May be open to trades on scopes for a .22 trainer rifle.
