Well, as of yesterday I ordered my first T/C Contender frame. I got it for a steal on gunbroker, but now I need to figure out what I want to do barrel-wise and could use some help. I was just going to order the .223 Super-14 barrel made by T/C as my first barrel, but then I found out that the barrel has a 1:12 twist rate which wouldn't be optimal for any of the bullet weights I want to shoot (55-75gn). I have found a few custom shops (SSK, MGM, and E.A. Brown) that can make me a .223 barrel with a 1:8 or 1:9 twist like I need, but I really don't know who would be the best to buy from. Can anyone here chime in and help me out?
