Just wanted to let you know that you guys have a great product. This is a xp-100 chambered in 20 ppc I put together with your .20 Cal 3 groove 1:11 twist barrel. I am so impressed with the way it shoots. I will definitely be using an x-caliber barrel on my next build. The target is a 5 shot group at 100yds.

 

 

I had Carl at "Precision Shooting of  Wyoming" carbon fiber wrap my X-Caliber barrel.

Bull shot in Colorado by Dave Heradia at 963 yards with a custom 28 Nosler built by Davison Precision Rifles with an X-Caliber barrel. He also shot shot an elk cow with the same rifle at 640 yards. The rifle/barrel shoot great. 

 

Shot 5 groups tweeking seating depth
 
31" 8T, unturned blank
Non trued Rem 700
Pillar bedded wood 40X stocks
Leupold 36X
29.0g of R#17
105g Hornady A max with various seating depths from .006 jam to 0.030 jump
Formed Lapua 308 with large primer
Velocity is 3170 fps
 
wind was a factor, but largest group was a .294
 
I have 308 palma brass formed and ready to work up groups with in this 6 XC.  When I was forming this case from Lapua brass, I ended up with a long neck. So, I ordered a neck reamer and cut the neck .100 longer, which will change the turbulence point, then added .105 freebore with a unithroater.  This is a really good looking case with the long neck.  Lot of work, however.
 
One of the new blanks I have one order from you will be on a Stolle Panda with a 6 Dasher and another Panda with 6x47 Lapua.
 
I have another X caliber blank that is now 24" that is chambered in 6 BRX,10T with a .060 throat, and it is so accurate it is boring.
 
Thanks for the great quality work on these barrels

This picture is the half octagon barrel on the finished gun.  .257 Roberts. This thing shoots as sweet as it looks.  You guys did a fantastic job on the barrel.

Brandon Wetzel 308, 1-10 twist, 16", straight fluted, oversized gas port, 100 yard 5 shot group.

 

Brandon: I gave one my 13.7” X-Caliber 5.56 barrels to my buddy Seth who reviews gear for me, and he just sent me this email with the attached photos. Not bad for a short barrel.

Just a photo of the finished Remage, with that last barrel I obtained from you. Fit was perfect and it is shooting great.  Loads are fire forming and are running around 1/2, so far. From a bag over the Jeep hood and 6 power scope setting. 100 yards.  Thank you    Bill K

It was windy and hurried! If it was decent I know I could have one holed it! Amazing barrel, love it! 260 Rem

I recently purchased one of your Savage prefits chambered in 6.5x47.  I did a break in procedure yesterday and went out today to do some follow up testing.  I have replaced my Shilen barrel with yours and let me tell you its a fine piece of craftsmanship.  I originally wanted to try your barrels after reading reviews from different sources.  The Shilen barrel has proved to be a very accurate .25 MOA barrel and I wanted to keep the round count low.  However, I do believe you have converted me into a life long customer.  I wanted to say that you and your staff have answered all my questions and I had the barrel in 5 weeks!!  Great company that makes exceptional barrels!!

 

The target included today illustrates what a great barrel can do!  Top left target is foulers...the rest were different powder charges of RL15 and 123 grain Lapua Scenars.  These are all 5 shot groups at 100 yards from a benchrest.  Rifle is a Savage Target Action with your 28 in bull contour 6.5x47L.

 

David Vance was at a friend's farm Tuesday. I think the 4 shot group is pretty good for 600 yards. Especially as my gun is not wearing a benchrest stock, but rather a cheap Choate tactical stock shooting off a bag. 

 

The X-Terminator muzzle brake in action!!
The video shows a 10" .308 Win AR Pistol with no brake, then an A2 Birdcage (which are everywhere), and our X-Terminator Muzzle Brake. It blew our expectations out of the water!!

Got in a barrel from X-Caliber. See the link below. This is an M110 profile, 20 inch, LR308 style barrel. We have it fitted to an Aero Precision upper/lower and SLR Rifleworks handguards.

These barrels come at an excellent price point and deliver great accuracy, not just for the price. They do a lot of custom barrel work, so you do not have to just order standard barrels. They will do custom fluting, chamber almost any cartridge, and profile. They also do pre-fit barrels for bolt guns.

The rifle is a Marlin X7 chambered in my wildcat, the .430 SJS with reamers made by Dave Manson and the experimental barrel made by X-Caliber barrels. Jeremy Shaw

Hunter/Dustin...Here is the rifle, I put the barrel on and a couple of group shots.  It is working very, very well.  I know the next one will also, also going on a axis donor when it arrives and the AR I just ordered.  Bill K     (Thank you again, for your service.) 9/17/2015

love my x-caliber barrels couple of groups from my 7mm valkyrie you did for me. Bruce 9/17/2015

Monday I received a 31", 6.5, 8 twist barrel from you. I bore scoped the barrel with the Hawkeye and only one other Brux barrel has ever looked this good in a bore scope. Krieger, Broughton, Shilen, Lothar Walthar look like Obama trash compared to this X caliber barrel!

Any company that puts out a barrel that is this fine should have their name stamped on the end of the barrel!!!

I will be chambering the barrel in 6.5x47L in a couple of days for a Panda action.

Last Sat, I was having an informal benchrest match with a few shooters that gather at our club. I had an X caliber 10 twist 6mm barrel chambered in 6 BRX, finished 24", unturned blank. I whipped a few shooters that were shooting Krieger barrels in the informal benchrest match. I pretty much cleaned their clocks real bad!

Thank you for putting such attention to detail in your workmanship.
