    Why do you want an aftermarket barrel? You could take a short drive and have KDF in Sequin install one of the best brakes made on your gun.

    I just dont know much about my options as far as putting compensators/ better barrels on rifles. I was actually thinking about buying a .325 wsm, but i would want one that is compensated and longer than the 23" barrel that browning offers. With a 23" barrel, the 325 wsm is actually less powerful than the 300wsm.... go figure. Why couldnt winchester just cowboy up and redisign the WSM case to make a good 338 wsm? And the 338 winchesters ive been looking at are either compensated (A bolt) w/ a rediculous 26" barrel, or uncompensated (ex. mk 77) with a nice 24" barrel

    If I lived in Texas I would give this outfit a look. They can do anything you want and give you a vary accurate rifle to boot.

    I've had a lot of luck with their barrels.

    If you're looking for top notch accuracy, who puts your barrel on is more important than who makes the barrel. Krieger, Hart, Pac-nor, Shilen and many others make fine barrels. It's best to find a good gunsmith and go with the barrel maker he prefers to use. Unfortunately top notch gunsmiths are about 1% of the gunsmith population.

    I have an old model 70 Winchester that has a ported Shilen barrel on it.
    It tries to put all the bullets in one hole at 100 yards.
