My preference is Lilja. One on a 7Rem and another on a 280 Rem. Dan knows how to build barrels.The "best" barrel is one that has a perfectly cut chamber. I have run Obermeyer and Krieger in .284. Both were quality barrels capable of .25 moa with the right load. Disclosure, the Krieger was 7RM and the Obey .284 Win. I see you are in Nor Cal; talk to Marc at https://spartanrifles.com/ He builds a bad azz stick.
Ill second Mike. He is building a 6.5 PRC for me. Super excited for it. He is well knowledge and very easy to work with. Just call him, doesn't hurt anything.Talk to Mike at HCA. Look into his barrels, pretty awesome technology and uses benchmark blanks. I’ve got a 300wm build he’s doing for me and can’t wait. I believe he’s running a discount on his barrels for rokslide members.
Nice rifle. Is that a McMillan ?I've had lilja's, kriegers, Hart's and a proof. For my 7mm build I went with a benchmark barrel and it shoots great! It's a spiral fluted sendero contour. Not that you can tell how good it is or anything from a pic, but who doesn't love a little rifle porn. Below is a pic from when I received it from my gunsmith. The second pic is factory HSM 180gr Berger ammo at 850 yards during ballistic validation. Rifle was built by Chad at Long Rifles Inc.
