    Some have. I found this thread on a 22 Benchmark Barrel in the archives.

    Thanks 333smitty :

    Very helpful links, just what the Doctor ordered. That Bench Mark is nor spitting out
    cut-rifled is GREAT.
    One link mentioned Kevin. He is the guy I used for a Sav-TGT time/true/FP-spring job.
    To say I like his work is an understatement. With a Krieger-13.5T in 6BR I was shooting in
    the low 3's before the action work. Sunday 12-12-10, at our monthly non-reg, short
    100&200 match, shooting S-70 MK's, at 100 I shot .185, .262 & .168. Scarry for this amature.
    Thanks, Rick in FL

    Last year over the 4th of July weekend in Tacoma, WA, using a Benchmark barrel, Mark Walker set a World Record single 5 shot unlimited group at 200 yards @.0846 inches.
    I`d say they are alright.

    I've used Benchmark rimfire barrels for years. Won the IR5050 3 gun Nationals with 'em back in 2006. I have 5 of 'em on order right now. I haven't used any of their CF barrels but have some friends who have on 600 yard rifles and they love 'em. Great folks to deal with and they make superb barrels to boot. Nobody makes a better rimfire barrel.

    I've been using them some, mostly 8 twist 6's for 600 yards. I've smithed several in 7mm & a 308 too. I agree they are good shootin barrels and good people to do business with.
