    All kinds of companies sell barrels, names like E.R. Shaw, Shilen, Bartlein, Hart, Midway USA, Brownell, and many more. Prices run from very inexpensive to astronomical.

    I have a Weatherby Vanguard (made by Howa) in .223 and it is an extraordinary tack driver. Reason for my post, you won't go wrong with whatever you pick.

  3. Dad and I swapped out a 30-06 barrel for a 257 Roberts Imp Barrel in about 20 minutes, but we were kind of goofing off during the process. First group out of the 257 measured about 5/8" at 100 yards. We're planning on switching a 243 to 35 Remington later this summer
     
  4. I am going to get a 308 barrel for my 243 striker
    I will even get to use the same bolt

  6. So changing barrels won't affect accuracy?
