McGowen Barrels,


I recently purchased 3 barrels from McGowen, 2 of the barrels were .257 Weatherby and 1 is a .264 Winchester Mag. I recently finished the build on the first .257 Weatherby, scoped the rifle, and shot it. To say I was impressed would be an understatement. After cleaning the barrel (very smooth for a brand new barrel) several rounds were fired to clear the oil. After clearing the barrel it took 9 shots to dial in the scope. After the scope was set a 3 shot test group was fired. The group measured .75”. Not bad for a mediocre shooter. I am very pleased and can’t wait to get the other 2 rifles finished and shoot them. All my barrels will come from McGowen from now on. Thanks for a great product

    Douglas, Thank you for the kind words. As you work your loads for this barrel you’ll find one that it absolutely loves. Barrels are very particular and always have a preference in what they like and I’m sure that you’ll find a load that will take these .75″ groups down to little bug-hole type groups.
