    Any barrel that is not bent with a good muzzle and descent bore is a winner PERIOD dont let anyone tell you different. Oh it also needs to head space properly. I like the "cheap barrels for dumb reasons" like a T.E. of 7 or 8 with a tight muzzle. Means nothing to a shooter but for some reason people think T.E. is the deciding factor. WRONG not if it is under a 10. Most of us wont shoot enough to worry about it.
    I see so many folks saying they want a T.E. of 1 but never ask about the muzzle. I have seen a T.E. of 1 and a shot out muzzle from Denmark. They cleaned it more than it was ever shot. One last thing if ther is a dark ring on the inside be careful as it normally is a swollen bullet from a primer only round that had no powder or little in it and the second bullet came behind it and wammoed it so the barrel swelled.

    Nothing for sale but have had them and shot them. No problems except one that was able to swollow a ball bat hehehehe. I changed it out for a new barrel quickly. I have one with a Excell Gardner stamp on it but the muzzle isnt any good. It shot good but not for points. Rick
