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.

Making progress. First big step, donor rifle showed up today. I am not going to shoot this thing as is!! I did not do that the last time and ended up with another 223 in the rack,lol.

Narrowed it down to NSS or Ragged Hole. Ragged hole has 1-10 twist. Shilen list a 1-9 twist along with a 1-10. Now to figure between the two.

Thoughts on throating for the 17 Remington Savage barrel.

Donor rifle just leaning around waiting for new life.

My rifle (1:10) will not shoot 30gr bullets, and the 25gr VMAX is the longest it will stabilize. If you want to run heavier/longer bullets, I suggest you go with the 1:9.

I called NSS about a Shilen select match 17 barrel 1-9" twist. He is checking and will get back with me.

I look here for what I should do on the throat. Hornady 25's are what I have a pile of. I am wanting to try some of the 30's and others as well. So am not sure what to do with the throat.
