    .17HMR standard Sako Quad barrel for a a Vamint .17 HMR Sako Quad Barrel

    Hey Fellas

    A long shot but does anyone happen to have a .17MHR Sako Quad VARMINT profile barrel that they want to get rid of or even better swap for a standard .17HMR sako Quad Barrel.
    I have a standard profile .17HMR barrel with approx 200 rounds through it that I would like to exchange for a varmint profile (thick barrel).

    Let me know what youve got
    Cheers

    Mike,

    Quick question - (please don't be offended) - why?

    Whats the gain on a varmint over a standard barrel in a Sako .17 cal?

    I clocked a sako barrel in R&B Sporting in Ross on Wye and if my memory serves me right it was varmint and about 125.

    Give Rob a call and see if it's still there!

    A standard barrel is lighter, there are more standard style stocks out there due to so many purchasing quads in the easly days hence the standard barrel is a well wanted upgrade for those who just bought the .22lr and finally I would be willing to put a little cash into the deal as well if someone had such a barrel.

    If your question was meant the other way round - ie why do I want a varmint barrel over a standard - Its because I just bought a .22wmr barrel in varmint and want two matching barrels (.22wmr and .17Hmr), I dont care about the weight, and I want them to match the stock I have.

    Cheers
