Bartlein is one of the best out there - sometimes hard to get though.

Don't be afraid to use Krieger, Rock Creek or Brux barrels too -all good stuff!!

might add Shilen and Lilja to that list. A very few could out shoot any of those listed.

I have 3 rifles that have Bartlein barrels and I have another in the safe waiting for me to decide what it will get made into. A buddy of mine has used 3 or 4 of them recently as well. From what I've seen from these barrels I would put Bartlein up against anyone. Every one of them is capable of 1/4" groups. I have or have had barrels from almost every high end barrel maker including Krieger, Brux, Bartlein, Obermeyer, Hart, Shilen, K&P/Blackstar, Pac-Nor, Lilja, Schneider, Rock and some of the lesser companies like Douglas, Green Mountain, and McGowen. If I was to choose from any right now for my next build it would probably be Bartlein first and either Krieger or Schneider second. I've used about a dozen Schneider barrels and have never had a bad one.
