We are on the same page. The cheaper barrel comment I took as cheap quality rather than cheaper in price. Krieger is my favorite for many reasons. My cleaning products and techniques could probably use improvement so I will clean this barrel up and post more results to compare.I’m not saying the Wilson barrels didn’t shoot good. No argument there, all I was stating was the fouling has been significantly less on other barrels. Bartlien, Brux & muller to be my picks. That’s just me.
