What ammo are you using? Mine is decent with the factory ammo I have tried but absolutely loves 8208XBR and 123 ELDM bullets. From 25gr all the way up to about 28 were all sub MOA. Very odd but I’m not complaining.I went with a satern button barrel a little below your price range but the thing seems to be temperamental. Sometimes its a laser with flyer every once in a while and other times its just under a minute. extremely frustrating at times haha. If I were to do it over I would go with a JP or Lilja. YMMV
Likewise. I can personally attest to this. Cancelled my barrel order after like 16 months. Every excuse imaginable. "We're not doing that length right now, we're doing of run of xx" barrels right now". Got that one bout 6 times. Somebody please take my money.. Screw it, ordered a Shilen. It's ok, just not what I wantedI have a Satern. It's phenomenal, capable of consistent .33 MOA with the handloads it likes. Getting one was like pulling teeth though. Unless they have one for sale that suits you, go elsewhere. Unless you don't mind zero CS and waiting 3 years for an update (I'm not kidding).
They're good enough though even running the business half ass keeps 'em in demand for years on out.
They claim they do custom work. They do not. I've submitted drawings for one and four years later I finally told 'em to just forget it.
But that one barrel is the best I have...
They are, especially in 6.5 Grendel. I tried to get Frank White at Compass Lake to do a barrel for me, but they didn't want to take on the project.Capt. Nemo- where did you get the Bartlein from? It seems like they are hard to find for the AR
Nice looking set up. Just out of curiosity, if you use off the shelf ammo whats your go to HUNTING 1st choice. Hornady 123gr ELD Match works great for me on paper. But on large hogs I have had mixed results. Shot placement is key, I know.Thought id throw a updated pic in with magpul prs stock. Also its getting a timney calvin elite trigger. In its current setup for yote hunting.
