    Is there anyone out there using this barrel? How do you like it? I am looking at the possibility of purchasing one and would love some feedback. Its going to be a gas gun. 24" barrel. Thanks

    I have two chambered in 204 Ruger and one in 17 Rem. All three are very accurate.

    I have a select match with a 1-10 twist, in a LRPV Savage and it is extremely accurate. Not a gas gun for sure.

    I bought a Rem 700 in 204 with a Shilen barrel on it. It does well for me,not so well for the prairie dogs.

    Are you running adjustable block? If so how is the clearance for hand guard? Is the barrel dimpled for the block or are you using clamp style? Thanks.
