IBI Stainless Barrels from Cleavers

#1 Postby AlexE » Mon Dec 17, 2018 6:40 pm

Hi Guys,

Does anyone know anything about the quality of these barrels cleavers are selling? Canadian made, apparently.

The price is right and 26" finish length and profile is good for one of my upcoming projects

You go first and let us know !!

If they had slower twists I would like to try one on a fox shooting rig. 22BR or a 22-250AI. Who cares about barre life.

I think most f-class shooters will pass on finished lengths alone.

26” 8 twist will keep a 123 grain supersonic in most 6.5 rigs well past 1200yards. More than a 26” on a gaymoor is a waste.

And what’s wrong with a 22-250 that shoots a projectile heavier than 55 grains?

I agree a 75g or 80g burger humping it will be a great long range Varminter as in 1200 plus

They seem very good with a sample of 1, I have a 6.5 which hammers with cheap American gunner
From a savage in a chassis 1”to 3/4” groups but closer to 1/2” when sorted, I believe they will have 30” 30cal 1-10 in the next few months, regards Rich

I've bought a 6mm 8T HV from Cleavers to be chambered in 6BRX and will post latter how it goes

'Peter' sent me this IBI review on Accurate Shooter which may be of interest

another brand to investigate might be tse.
they are doing hand lapped s.steel match as an option.
I have a 0.400/0.408 13 twist blank that looks good inside.
