Looks like the barrel man is no more. Folks are wishy washy on Shilen it seems. Remarks to the effect that barrel life is half of others,mvarious calibers, nothing specific. I can pretty much get two Shilens for the price of one of the "others". I see no big deal, you get a fresh throat and barrel more often for the same money.

I have a couple Shilen barrels and they shoot just fine. Have a shooting buddy that also would say the same.
You might look over Ragged Barrel site, out of Sparks, NV for a barrel at decent prices also. They have a couple, but you might also check out the Wilson barrels they offer. Bill K

My L461 has a 17 Rem 24" pencil barrel. It is a Cr-Mo Shilen 1:10, and it shoots just fine. I use waxed bullets, typically 25gr HP or Vmax, and it takes about 75 rounds before it needs to be cleaned.
