Thread: madd co barrels

    madd co barrels

    Anybody have any experience with madd co barrels I have just ordered one for a rebarrel in .308

  2. #2
    I bought a 308 target rifle with a Wichita action and 28" Madco barrel on it for my sister
    Madco are highly regarded amongst some of the Australia and NZ target guys

    it is certainly a very nice lump of metal and shoots very well
    not convinced about the outer surface finish which has a deliberate radially grooved profile almost like a very finely threaded bar
    syapect that was down to the builder rather than the barrel maker

    I had one on a Musgrave for a while, it got to circa 4000 rounds before it went south on me, the lead was badly eroded..
    I've seen them polished, bead blasted and cerakoted? follow the usual one shot clean break in and it will serve you very well.
    what twist is it as most I've seen are 1 in 13 to shoot the Palma 155gn bullet?

    1in14 twist witch should be fine for the 130 grn barns ttsx that I have been using .looking forward to using it

    1:14" twist 308? is that an unusual choice?

    1:12 or 1:10 seems more common
    neither should have issues stabilising a 130gr or even a 123gr

    That was the spec they gave me I will double check to be sure ,I might of miss understood

    I had a 1in14" twist on my old Parker hale TX1200. It shot the 155's very well

    yep 1:14 is right with a 26 /28 inch barrel

    interesting
    will have to check the one we have
    shoots 150s extremely well over 44gr on N140

    I have a 1:10 heavy weight on a 220 Swift, very accurate with 55 - 70 gn. (especially 69 gn TMK!!). All at surprising velocities. Agree about the exterior finish, must increase the surface area so help to keep things cool.
