In a time crunch here and I want a barrel in less than three months. Who can do it? 9.3/#4.

I think your options are limited to Lilja, Pac-Nor, Shilen and Douglas. Krieger doesn't make a 9.3 in that contour in stainless. Bartlein, Brux, and Hart don't make them period. I'd probably lean toward Lilja since I have a .375 H&H with a lilja barrel that shoots tiny groups. I think Lilja could probably do it in under your time frame.

I have good luck with Pacnor for quality and fast turnaround.

I can testify that Lilja makes a really good 9.3 barrel, but Pac-Nor also makes good barrels and is often quicker.

my preference would be Lilja. I've had nothing but stellar results with them (all in the .338-.375 range).

I have only used Lothar Walthar barrels for the last 10 years, and I am not sure they even have SS barrels, but if they did then that is what I would use..otherwise I would opt for a Lilja or Pac Nor.

However you must understand that the 9.3s are very "nostalgic cartridges" and protected by the Red Gods of hunting and if you use a stainless steel barrel and a plastic stock your on your own..The Gods will probably have you howling at the moon and chasing rabbits, you may become a pervert and partake in sodomy and child molestation under their curse..Its risky business and you have been forewarned! I would recommend you reconsider! smile smile

Hate to,maybe,seal this guys fate but:

From Lothar Walthar:
"Our Stainless Steel is of a very special type which will give longer barrel life and can be used in all contours".

From their reamer list:
9.3x62
