    Lederer Barrels

    I just wanted to mention that I will be stocking Lederer barrels for anyone who is interested. I did not plan this, it just happened since I have been ordering them in large quantities. I will not be using the forum as a sales tool, but instead I will use the classified section. This is simply an announcement.

    Does/will Mr Lederer do gain twist? What about tight twist .30s?

    As of last winter James was not doing gain twist yet. If I recall correctly, His rifling machine is capable tho.

    I will check with James and see if he has started making gain twist barrels. If he has, there is probably a small fee for that option. What twist on a .30 are you looking for, or did you mean to say tight bore?

    I think that was a wise decision.

    I've got one of James 13.5 twist 6MMs. I shot it at the East West for the 200 yard portion. The barrel shot great. It pulled me up from mid pack to 5th overall. I should have shot it for the 100 yard portion and maybe wouldn't of had to play catch up!

    Anyway it's a shooter I've got more on order!

    James has made 30 caliber barrels with twist as fast a 1-7". At this time he does not plan on offering tight bore (.298") barrels. Like Bart said, these barrels really shoot well. I know of several others shooting mid-teen aggs with them.

    He does not at this time. He may decide to in the future, but right now 6mm and 30 caliber are the only barrels he is tooled for. I'm sure a 22 centerfire would happen before a rimfire. And for Jackie, the others are correct, the barrels are cut rifled and hand lapped before and after rifling.
