I had this barrel fitted to a new 1885 Winchester action. I'll shoot Schuetzen matches with it this summer. Cast bullet lubes can give problems in the cold but so far I'm very pleased with this rifle. The first groups were 1 1\4 inch at 100yds with commercial cast bullets. I won a match with it and until the match it only had 50 rounds through it. I expect I will get great accuracy with it when the weather warms up and I get to spend some time developing a load with my cast bullets. This is my second barrel from Green Mtn and once againn I got a winner.
