very impressed with the X-caliber barrel! These groups were loads i had developed for the old barrel so it may be able to shoot even better.

I have been very pleased with their barrels. More accurate than I have the ability to shoot that is for sure.

I agree, as they do not come up as often as some of the other custom barrel makers but they are gaining notoriety.

Glad to hear that. I by no means am a gunsmith, and was not even sure what to do, but with the help of Randy and searching on the site i figured it all out.

I highly encourage anyone with the will to give it a try. I was so scared of messing things up, but this did not wind up being the case.

I’m a .270 guy....and I like your group! Some loads just work. Sweet build. If my tikka wasn’t so accurate I would build something very similar.

To be perfectly honest I didnt know much about them. I lucked into them because I was having a hard time finding an AR barrel in ruger 204.
