Who makes the best barrels for ultra long range hunting? Or does it matter.

Hello

All the major barrel makers make fine accuracy barrels. Only a few will make the longer ones that we like for Ultra longrange hunting. I like at least 36" of barrel for the real long stuff.
I have Kriegers, Harts, Lilja and Obermeyer on some of our 1000 yard rifles.

I have a K&P (37") on my 338/416 Rigby and it is very accurate. I also have the Lilja 36" on a rifle and it is very accurate. I have in the closet ready for something exotic in a 30 cal. a 44" lilja. The Krieger is a fine barrel and he will make longer lengths as will Obermeyer.

The Hart, Shilen, Douglas and some others limit the length of their barrels to 30".

Take your pick, they are all quality barrels.

How about an Atkinson barrel? I guess that is what the Military uses for their M40A3 Sniper Rifles so I was thinking of them. What would you use?
Thanks
