I got one hoping the 1in 10 twist would stabilize 75 gr. Hornady's, although a long shot, it would be worth it. It didn't and would barely shoot 69 gr. Sierra match. The chrome lining is supposed to take the barrel life to at least that of a 22-250. The real turning point was in reloading. The case mouth brass is very thick and caused bullet deformation on seating. I recontoured a 6mm seating stem to stop this but but if you try to neck trim, the dies will not close the mouth down far enough to tension the bullet. Also my favorite powder Varget would not meter thru the Dillons. IEven this would have been tolerable if the accuracy, would have been up to a good .233 1x9 twist bolt gun. which it wasn't. so------- After shooting a box of factory 65 gr. with slightly less than 1 in groups I was left wondering just what it was good for. I didn't try light bullets who cares--same ballistics as a 22/250 and holds 2 less rounds.
