If you are looking to save money and get a great shooting barrel at the same time, I'd recommend you check out E.R. Shaw Custom Barrels
They make a great product right here in Pennsylvania at a very affordable price.
Contours from Lightweight Sporter up to Heavy Bull (#1-#5) in Chrome-moly are $160, Stainless Steel are $230 chambered and threaded for your action. Fluting,helical fluting etc are available options for extra $$
Maybe not considered "benchrest quality" like the higher dollar barrels but much more affordable and every Shaw barrel I've shot has been more accurate than I'm probably capable of being
