Hi Folks
I am going to have built a .308 Palma / Target rifle and I'm wondering which barrel to choose - Walther, Border, Krieger.
May I ask for opinions please?
Thanks for any help.

I've been using nothing but Kreiger and PacNor for the last couple of years. Not had a bad one yet......

I've had bad barrels from all the other major suppliers...........I just don't trust them any longer.

they foul less and seem to be a little faster.

i bought my first 3 groove Pac Nor in .308 and have to agree they foul less and clean easier. It also broke in very easily and quickly.

Thanks for your input to my request for barrel help. Too many barrel makers to make a choice!

Onehole, good to know you're still there. Kriegers short supply, so gone for Walther this time. Compare notes dreckly.
Love, John G
