    The Benchmarks are great barrels, I have a 30"bull with very little taper on my 6.5x284, and it has been a screamer from day one. It shoots 1/2 MOA out to 1100yd, the furthest I have tried it. I also have some Krieger CBI barrels, their button rifle...

    No, I’m limited fairly severely as well. I ask, as I had a cousin build one off my measurements from a couple barrels I have, and was charged $100 for the lug and forearm lug. I about choked!
