    So Hardy, Kriger, Shilen, Lilja hvy AR15 match barrel which would you choose?

    Somehow I just cannot see me parting with my $s for a hardy "match grade barrel" considering the track record of the other 3.

    or am I missing something?

    @Ginga got one on his 222 Vixen and it shoots very well I understand. Hardy has a tie up somehow with Border Barrels. First impressions are good.

    Unless I am wrong, the only tied up Hardy has with Border is that he employs one of the best guy that used to work there. I shot a few f-class matches against him in Scotland and used to see him when I was doing my regular visits at Border while I lived there. He is a very nice guy although I do not personally know him well.

    Sounds right. I knew there was something but not how many degrees of separation there were with the Border thing.
