I recently pillar-bedded a friend's relatively new wood-stocked, Rem 700 BDL, .223 and tried it with a few reloads tailored for my Tikka yesterday.

At 100 yards in a swirly wind, it shot a 3-shot, 3/8" group and two shots in 1/16". I'd say the barrel quality is excellent. Workmanship otherwise appeared very good also.

My load of 25 grains of Accurate 2230, 50 grain Hornady SX, Federal primers and Rem cases is the most accurate I've found for my Tikka 595. OAL is 2.260".
