I've used E R Shaw twice. Once factory direct, varmint weight 220 Swift. Half minute at 200yds.
The second was a kit from Brownell's in 243Win. My grandson(13yrs) has rung an 8" gong at 545 measured yards.
I'll use Shaw again and again!
GOOD LUCK and GOOD SHOOTING!!!

IF YOU'RE GONNA GET OLD,YOU BETTER BE TOUGH!! GETTIN' OLD AIN'T FOR SISSIES!!!

I've had them barrel up a couple of actions for me. The first was a Mauser action, they put an 18" .35 Whelen barrel on it for me. Gun shoots very good. Wife commendered it, it's her gun now. Then I had them replace the barrel on a Savage 7MM Mag that got damaged in an ATV accident. Again wonderful job.

I'll use them again when I need something barreled.

What Is A Veteran?
A 'Veteran' -- whether active duty, discharged, retired, or reserve -- is someone who, at one point in his life, wrote a blank check made payable to 'The United States of America,' for an amount of 'up to, and including his life.' That is honor, and there are way too many people in this country today who no longer understand that fact.

I have one in .243 on a Savage action that shoots 1/4" groups when I do right.

All of the above groups were fired with http://www.midwayusa.com/product/762...hreaded-muzzle .

The first two were at 100yds with some semi-random handloads with IMR 4895 and Nosler 168gn Custom Comps, and yes, both are 5shot groups. Three went through the same hole in the bull. The second two were with Silver State Armory factory loads with 168gn Match Kings also at 100yds. The final was at 300yds with SSA (measured 1.65") I'm certainly happy with the results and the barrel. Load development has almost been pointless since it has shot everything I've fed it extremely well.

And may I add, compared to a lot of brands and particularly compared to buying new Rem. barrels the Shaw's are a great deal!

He whom has no hope for the future has no hold on the present.

He whom has no hope for winning has already lost!

I had a Shaw 7mm-08 on my model 11 before I had to sell it. Shot great. There are better barrels out there, but not for the price. If it is for anything but bencrest, the Shaw will work wonderfully for you.
