Hart or Krieger?

I was thinking of sending off a Remington 700(7mm-08) to have it re-barrelled, true up the action, lap lugs, etc. I've pretty much narrowed the choice down to Krieger Barrels and Hart Barrels to do the work. I know they both make terriffic barrels but does anyone have any experience with either of these makers gunsmith work? One other question, I was thinking of having the factory wood stock pillar bedded and free floated for right now and later on have the same work done on a McMillan stock. Would the wood stock do the new set-up justice or should I just dive in and order the new stock the same time I get the barrel and work done? If you have any other suggestions I'd love to hear them. By the way, the rifle will be used for hunting and fun at the range, not competitive shooting.

My next barrel is a Krieger. I just got my first cut rifling barreled gun and I am impressed.

I haven't owned one, I have several other brands on various guns, my best I currently own would go the Lilja.

I have talked and been sent information from Krieger. I specifically asked for dimensions on the chamber reamer on my next build, it came in the mail 4 days later. They have a excellent reputation and reasonable turn around times.

I believe Hart is a button rifled barrel, which put them out of my consideration. But all the benchrest shooters who use them can't be wrong.

I don't think you can do wrong with either manufacturer, both do top qualiity work. Both are all over the Benchrest shoots and records. I guess it boils down to do you want a button or a cut rifle barrel.

I am not sure if they do gunsmith work or not, but Broughton would be the barrel to go with. 11 of the top 14 benchrest rifles in the country are using Broughton barrels. The prices are inline with many of the other manufacturers, and the quality is definitely there.

For what its worth now, I have a 700 that had a Hart barrel put on it by Darrel Holland.
First rate work, first rate barrel. Easily a 1/2MOA rifle now.

Ford or Chevy? You should get a great barrel from either maker. I personally prefer a Mike Rock 5R barrel.
