    Curious why 1.25 dia and not a HV contour? Just wondering is all.

    Because they came in first! I have twice as many HV x 29" blanks on order. Guessing they are about a month out.

    The 1-1/4" straight by 27" blanks were ordered primarily with our local market in mind. We Texans that shoot Hillbilly Benchrest Break Stuff matches like our truck axles. The longest match on our circuit is 600 yards, so a few FPS lost at 26" doesn't hurt us much. Plus a 27" blank is as long as you can get without the $10/ inch premium.

    I have read many good things about the Rock Creek barrels. Always nice to have another source for premium barrels.:D:D

    Paul,

    I would suggest two reasons:

    1. going from the 1.25 cylinder contour to HV (or any smaller taper) is much easier than the other way.
    2. my personal favorite; if you change your mind and decide to sell it, cylinder diameter is much easier to do so than any other contour.

    The HV sixes are supposedly in final inspection. I really hope to have them soon, but Russell & Co are very, very busy. I don't want to take time from his production to answer questions on my delivery. Trying to be patient.
