Wouldn't we all agree, for the most part, that every part of a rifle, the ammo, the builder, and the shooter contribute to that rifle's accuracy potential? I was just thinking about it but why do we read and hear so much about certain barrels winning records and setting new records? Seems like the barrel is the primary, or only "winning" component 100% of the time as far as the rifle is concerned. What about the action? The shooter? I don't know enough about competitive shooting so I don't know a lot of the names out there. Just a guess, but if you had a champion shooter who won, say, a few competitions with a Krieger barreled rifle, and it was time for a new barrel, the next one being a different make altogether, say, a Schneider polygonal rifled bbl, isn't it conceivable that the diligent loader/shooter could work up another winning load with the new barrel and win the next competition(s) just the same? I guess I'm just curious why so much falls on the barrel for credit when there are so many excellent barrels that could be on the action and do the same thing.
