    I definitely think everyone should do a comparison between their rifles, with the ulw barrel, at 50 yds. It would be neat to see, for sure.

    My Kidd shoots sub 1/2 groups at 50 yards with monotonous regularity.

    The shooting sports have always been a top priority for me since I'm single. The current focus is on preparing lead bullets for 30-06, 7.62x54R and 8mm Mauser. The low priced barrel project sounds like a winner. When I started building 10-22 rifles, I went overboard so there are lots of toys around here to fiddle with. Anything worth doing is worth doing to excess, right?

    Yup, we'll put that on the schedule!

    If you'd like to see what the ER shaw is capable of, just take a look at the Rimfire challenge scoring thread. Every target I have ever shot for score was using my 10/22 w/18" SS Er shaw bull barrel. I had a good run a while back where I shot some 99s and 100s for 3 months consecutively. I built a copycat rifle of mine using an 18" kidd SS bead blasted barrel and bedded or floated still that rifle did not shoot as well as the ER shaw barrel. Same optics, head spacing, trigger pull, ammo and environment. Maybe I just got a dud. It's still a great looking barrel and outshoots a stock barrel effortlessly but it is just not quite as good.
