    Top shelf, button rifled. As good as anyone's barrels.

    Agreed- top shelf button rifled.

    I've shot many F-class clean targets with Benchmark barrels.

    I have one in .223 for midrange, shoots great. You will not go wrong with a Benchmark barrel.

    That's a pretty good endorsement right there. Straight from someone that's used all the good name barrels.

    I have 3 Benchmark barrels. 7RemMag on a 700 action gun smithing done by Benchmark, 22LR CZ action gun smithing done by Benchmark, and 204 Ruger drop in barrel on a Savage Varmint . All are VERY GOOD and the 204 is the most accurate rifle I own. 100 yard 20 shot groups, (40 gr Berger, 26.3gr Benchmark, 2.335 OAL) ALWAYS under .7 inches. A 200 yard 20 shot group 1.7inches. This is with a HiScore bench rest so I am very much out of the picture. Many in our club (Custer Sportsman Club) swear by Benchmark and it helps they are 45 minutes down the road. As other have noted their customer service is exemplary.

    Forgot: I have barrels by 5 other mfrs. They are OK but definitely not as good as the Benchmarks. Benchmarks are a little more expensive and a long wait (they have become popular). Benchmark from now on!
