Nick had the following to say about his build.

“I just wanted to send a quick email to let you know how very happy I am with the 3 Shilen barrels I purchased from Northland. All three are mounted and broken in. All three have exceeded my expectations. This picture is a 5 shot group I shot at 200 yards yesterday with the 6br. All three barrels are mounted on Savage Target actions.”

Thanks for the message Nick. Happy shooting!
