I just got my 300 Win Mag back with one of these barrels. It cleans very easily and is more accurate than I am. It is a 9.5# rifle with sporter type big game stock. Recoil is significant. I have shot some 0.5" groups but I think the larger groups have to do with me and how the rifle is recoiling. I have a 6mm Walther barrel on order to be chambered to 243 Win for a long range varmint rifle. They are button rifled. They are surprisingly inexpensive ($200 for SS). So far I like this barrel, Rufous.

What a great handle! Why didn't I think of that?

Nightforce has great tracking capabilities, they are rugged, a bunch of elevation, holds zero forever, and reticles are designed for long range shooting. So if you are looking to shoot long distances constantly, then you need a scope that can take the abuse. -- gilmillan1

Nightforce ATACR Scope Review

The total package. Nightforce is the best I have used as far as turret feel and solid detents. I have never had one that didn't track right on and always return to zero. Nightforce NXS is the best value for everything I need. -- Broz
