Are the centerfire tubes button rifled or cut? Three groove to be specific, or does it matter? Thanks

Re: Benchmark Barrels

Benchmark offers a full range of centerfire calibers now, from .22 all the way up to .50 caliber. The three-groove, standard land, 8-twist 6mm barrel has been shooting exceptionally well, and Benchmark recently acquired new buttons so it can deliver 1:7″ and 1:9″ twists too. The 6.5mm barrels and 30 caliber barrels have been shooting very well also according to match reports. Benchmark can deliver both canted-land and conventional land versions of its centerfire barrels. Which shoots best? According to barrel-maker Ron Sinnema, “the 6mm 3-grooves with standard lands are working great. Bruce Baer tried one recently and said is was exceptionally accurate.” And for customers who prefer cut-rifled barrels, Benchmark now offers cut rifling in most bore sizes, from .22LR all the way up to rifled shotgun bores.

Re: Benchmark Barrels

They can do both cut and button (most are buttoned) I have the 3 grove 11 twist on a 308 and its a shooter for sure.

Besides being a great barrel, the guys at the shop are great people. I will have more benchmark barrels in the future!
