    Want skinny whippy inconsistant barrel

    Does anyone have a skinny whippy barrel that they couldn't get the shoot consistently that i can have an experiment with.
    Not wanting one that is shot out. More something you just couldnt trust to shoot reliably.
    Prefer 6.5cal but can work with anything.

    Cheers

    I've just sent my kimber away to truflite for a rebarrel. You can buy the factory barrel when I get it back? 6.5 creedmoor. Probably done 500 rounds. 4-6 weeks turn around though.

    Brownings BOSS system worked well tuning barrels but put weight in awkward places an improvement would be interesting

    I've seen barrel tuner attachments that is like a parallel rod attached at several points along the barrel. See image.

    Wonder if you can get a .410 shotgun arrangement similar to those 40mm underslung grenade launcher things. Would dampen a whippy rifle barrel and also add a few ballistic options, like harvesting native birds on DOC land if you are a Norwegian tourist.

    Depends, concrete is lighter than steel, strong in compression.
