He had issues with origins. John is very particular. And that's not a bad thing.I wished they would offer shouldered Tikka prefits. I would buy a couple. They are holding out for some reason. I called several months ago and asked about it and was told it is a tolerance issue because of a mass produced action. It didn’t seem to matter that many others are offering them and have been.
I’m sure they have their reasons.
I don’t like to send my actions. This is the reason I like prefits. You are correct that if I do it once i could use the barrels across any of my Tikka actions and will have a second source besides PVA for high quality barrels. I may do it this time.Send your Tikka in and get as many sale barrels as you want to put on the shelf..then your action will be measured and on file for all future prefits you want. Not that hard
His button barrels are green mountain blanks. He turns them to whatever contour you want. I have one and it shoots very well. Thru a borescope it looks good, not Krieger or Bartlein good but much better than most factory barrels. I wouldn't hesitate to buy another if i needed to save some $$ on a project.Who makes their button blanks and does anyone have experience with them?
Sent him an email last week. Gave the specs of what I was looking for and wasn't sure of the terms of the sale as I couldnt locate this thread again. Told me, yes, I can make that. Said, OK, what costs am I looking at. No answer.When? That doesn't sound right. The barrel sale is pretty clear
Did you call them? Or email them again? Maybe he didn't get it. That's what I would have doneSent him an email last week.

Only 6.5 or 7 twists for a 22 cal. I would have gotten another 22creed or a 22br barrel by now if it were an 8 twist to help keep the rpms below 300k. .Must resist 22 Creedmoor...
I'm gonna make this real easy for you. They will include 22cal 8 twist GM or Kreiger in this sale. Call Keystone.Only 6.5 or 7 twists for a 22 cal. I would have gotten another 22creed or a 22br barrel by now if it were an 8 twist to help keep the rpms below 300k. .
And only 7.5 twist in the 6mm, I would have gotten myself a dasher if it were a 7 twist.
Wish they twists-cals were reversed.
Pondering getting a 6.5 creed remage and forgoing the 6xc it would be replacing.

.223 wylde 7wist is optimal for 75 eld. I've been shooting a bunch of Keystone 7 twist Krieger 223 wilde with 75 Eld. .115 freebore is gonna be for much longer heavier bulletsOrdered me a 223 .115 freebore M24 for my TL3. Been wanting to build a 223 for a while to match my 6 Dasher and couldn't resist any longer. Hope the 75gr ELD-Ms work well with the 7 twist, wanting to shoot fairly cheap reloads to get some serious rounds down range instead of burning Bergers and barrel life on my Dasher!
