Default MGM, Bullberry or ???

Looking at rifle barrels. I want a 444. MGMís barrel is 1:20 twist with 5R rifling. Bullberry offers theirís in 1:16 or 1:18 twist. I will be shooting 265-300 grain jacketed bullets likely but want the ability to shoot cast as well. Does anyone have experience with either of these makers? What other brands should I be looking at, if any?

I have had several barrels from them all shot great good service at least for me good price also The only problem that I had with one of their barrels was a 30 carbine that would not extract called them couple days later I got the proper extractor no charge.

By them, do you mean MGM, Bullberry, or both?

So after a little research i feel assured 1:20 is adequate for a 300-310 jacketed or cast bullet so i ordered the MGM barrel. Should arrive Friday. Iíll get it assembled and try to get some trigger time between working on my flower beds.

I almost went with 445 so I could shoot 44 mag, but
1) I don’t have any SM brass,
2) I do have 444 brass, and
3) I already have a Ruger #1 in 44 magnum...
