    Wtb. Rooted barrels for tomato stakes

    After rooted barrels, if your custom or tricked up rifle has shat it's daks, over pressured or generally fatigued I can use em as tomato stakes this summer.

    The quality or lack thereof of gunsmithing is obviously not important as they'll only be swinging super toms.

    Would it matter☺ $2 is way more than I could get from any warranty/stand by your product on 2 TF barrels.

    Pack of assholes that got over a grand out of me for nothing in return. Wanted me to spend more by firing a hundred rounds to let it settle. Dumbest shit I have ever heard relating to custom barrels. Might shoot1/8-1/4" tighter after a 100 but not 2 friggin inches.
    End of rant

    I have a ruger 22 Magnum barrel, stainless even! Was rooted when it left the factory judging by the way it shot. (Maybe I needed to fire a few more boxes of ammo through it?). Anyway, you can have it Steve for whatever the cost of getting it to you is.

    If it's not a first round hit you need to practice more

    There's way better things to use as stakes.

    Whats the real reason you want old barrels for?

    Wtb. Rooted barrels for tomato stakes

    Some barrels are only good for tomato stakes esp once they're f@$&ed around with. Manuka is so old school

    What did you do to your rifle Brads or should I not ask lol. It's pretty hard to bugger up a rem action, they are almost bombproof.
