    6.5X47 Shilen #3 1 in 8" 20 inch Barrel

    I am parting my Remington 700 as it doesn't feed from the internal box without using a detachable mag for centre feed and I don't want to touch the feed rails as it will still cycle 7mm08. Rifles not being used anymore as I don't reload anymore.

    Has fired less than 50 rounds. Developed a load super easy with Varget and 142 Accubond Long Ranges and shot sub 0.5 moa 5 shot groups as a complete novice. Shot 2 tahr with it both between 300 and 500 yards. Have shot steel at 600 yards.

    Chambered and threaded 5/8x24 by Robbie at Gunworks around 2 years ago.
    Have ~100 lapua brass that I can sell also. Around 50 once fired. And some 142 ABLRs

    Looking for $400ono

    Hope this helps. It's heavier than factory but still fairly light. Seems very similar to my Brux #3 which is very similar to a Bartlien 2B of that helps?

    Just realised barrel is in Chch and will be removed by Gunworks next week. Brass is up north and will require slightly longer as my family will have to grab it from my storage.

    I have one of these barrels in 6.5 Grendel. It's fairly stout for a hunting rifle, a smidgeon thicker but very similar to the Sako 85 standard weight barrel. At 386mm from the action (not counting the thread) its 18.04mm dia. Nominal dimensions and weights are on the brownells web site If you want a light weight mountain rifle, you should go for a Shilen #2 or even #1. Don't count on fluting or turning this one down. Mine shoots very well even though I haven't done any development and the first load I tried is under MOA. Like stocky, I've shot steel out to 600m with a good hit rate >50%.

    I paid $600 from Gunworks a year ago plus a few more hundred for chambering and fitting so $400 sounds pretty good if you can just screw it into your rifle. My 6.5 Grendel Lapua brass is really good, needs a minumum of prep. Shot well with new unfired brass straight from the box, so I'd recommend getting that from him at the same time (and the dies if he'll part with them).

    This barrel is very easy to clean. After the first half dozen shots it has never collected any copper. I fired 100 rounds and soaked it for half an hour with boretech but not a spot of blue. Carbon cleans out with just two patches of KG1. Its amazing.
