Anyone ever use these? any pros or cons to them .any info appreciated.
Use them on a T2k all the time for XTC shooting. I cannot tell the difference between the Wilsons and any other brand that I have used for that purpose. and sure cant beat the price
I have one in 223, 24" bull barrel. It shoots 1 moa all day long.
If I am not mistaken that is what Cooper uses on their rifles.
I have one on a AR 15 and I was shooting less then 1/2" during the so called, "break in". And that was with the stock 6.5 lb. trigger. Have a new trigger coming and kind of wondering just how good it can actually shoot. Also, clean up was a breeze hardly any coppering. I ordered another Wilson yesterday for my grandson's AR.
The man that makes them is a real first class professional jerk ass on the phone, but the barrels shoot good. I have several and as stated previously, they are very hard to beat for the money. They do a good job finishing the inside too, no tool marks can be seen with my bore scope in every one I own and have looked at.
I've started working with one on a 6.5mm Remington Magnum build. 1 in 8" twist. Was shooting 3/4 to 1 MOA during the first couple visits to the range for load testing, but had to throw all the data out the window after identifying a faulty scope on the rifle during testing. Scope has been replaced and will be continuing load testing again soon. Will let you know how it shoots.
I have another Wilson on one of my 6mm Remingtons. 1 in 8" twist. Have not fired a single round through it yet tho.
I have been working with someone in Idaho, he shoots a 6.5 Creed. Wilson and is having trouble shooting anything else as it shoots so good.
IIRC, Cooper Rifles use Wilson barrels, and they shoot fantastic
Two Cooper rifles and my Varmint AR all with Wilson barrels, all shoot great.
