Jimbo, how about a putting a barrel from one of the custom barrel makers (Hart, Shilen, Lilja, K&P, Obermeyer, Blackstar and several others) I and a varmint shooting buddy have tried Hart, Shilen, Lilja and Obermeyer and they were all satisfactory for varmints and 1000 yd competition. I haven't got a "hummer" yet (a barrel which will do everything right) but hell I can't either. I just built a customer a 300 Win Mag competition rifle on a 40X rec'vr, factory barrel, McMillan stock and it will shoot in the point fours and with a little work on the load, I expect point twos. Most of these barrel makers are on the net and a few benchrest gunsmiths are on it also. They usually have a few barrels on hand and can chamber and "tweak" the rifle up for max accuracy. E-mail me and I'll help you get in touch with them or the barrel makers or just steer you in the right direction. Nodlaig mhaith chugnat! (Irish for Merry Christmas) Doc
