I received my new 7 inch 40 SW barrel today from Bullberry. I have some 180 gr bullets from a Lee mold to shoot in this barrel. Waiting for a custom stock set for it.

I only have one Bullberry barrel, a short 50-70 that shoots superbly. Very nice external finish too.

The barrel was a sale barrel from Bullberry. $149 for it and that was a bargin. Gave more for the stock set.
Fred made a 6mm Bullberry Improved Match barrel for my Contender about 3-4 years ago. Great workmanship, super accurate barrel. He also made up the furniture in extra fancy wood. I could do without the poly finish though, and just have a good hand rubbed oil finish. I am always afraid of chipping that plastic finish.

That 45-70 looks great. What was the coin on the wood?

I've always wanted to try a Bullberry barrel but have had such good luck with the stock Contenders that I couldn't see spending the coin for a Bullberry. All I've heard on them has been praise.
