    WTB / Trade : Take-Off .308 Target Barrel, 1/10" or similar

    Hi all - looking for a take-off target barrel or similar. Only real requisite is that I can rechamber it, (will be 300Blk) with a finished length of 16" - and that it has enough meat in the knox to do so.

    Prefer 1/10" as it will be for lightweight 300Blk only and for it to have a bit of life left in it. I don't really want to pay squillions for it so I am not asking for perfection. Might be able to swap you some lamb or summit.

    What have you? Cheers.

    Message @ebf.
    He has a 1-10" twist 308 TrueFlite that is available - unless he's already moved it on.

    The one I have is brand new 32 inch TrueFlite Ultramatch, so bit overkill for a project like this.

    Mike is a good option, there are several guys re-barelling for the new season and the run-up to Palma 2019, so you may well be in luck with some ex target barrels.

    Cheers ebf - I agree - your tube is better on something a bit more serious. Just got off the phone with Mike. Still interested in hearing if anyone has something laying about.... cheers.

    Maybe also give Scott Trail a ring ? A lot of the Palma barrels will be 12 twist, but that should still be fine for medium weight 300 BLK projectiles

    Im hoping to get hold of a barrel stub for a TC Encore. Currently have a 7mm08 barrel but want a trainer setup for stuffing around on the farm and to teach the kids some centrefire skills.
