I'm not sure who sources the barrel, it is a 5R rifling profile, it may be a Remington for all I know. The reason I went that way, is that I can get a blue printed action and HS precision stock for less than buying an action and stock and then having it blueprinted. So I might look at it as a free barrel and if it doesn't shoot, then I'll replace it and move on.
The benchrest type loading kit is a little more than I estimated once I added it all up.

I just question if it will make an appreciable difference. I can routinely develop loads tuned to a sound rifle that will perform at the .5 MOA level with my existing equipment and would not expect this additional gear to get me that much more accuracy. But you never know until you try.
