I have 3 Lilja barreled rifles. All shoot fantastic, one is a 26" 1/9 chambered in 17 rem with a short freebore. I had a bunch of new brass on hand, plus another 17 rem AR so I stayed with it. If starting with no brass the cheapest would be 17/223. All out performance go 17/204 the brass will probably be more expensive. I know there is a 17/223 die set, not sure about the 17/204. Lightning strikes with the hot 17's on coyote and smaller critters.

Give a look see at Ragged Hole barrels website out of Sparks NV. They have barrels, and one of which is Wilson, which is the barrel Cooper uses. You might just find what you want and they even do the work, if you want.

My 17 Remington is a L461, a blued, 24" pencil barreled Shilen with 1:10 twist and a Fajen stock. It looks like long barreled H&R P317 Ultra Wildcat. Shoots about 1/2" groups at 100 yds. It will shoot 25gr Vmax, but not quite that well. When I need to replace the barrel, I will go with a 1:9 twist.
