I'm planning on buying a pre-threaded, short chambered barrel for my VZ-24. I'm using a .30-06 barrel right now just to shoot it, but I want to do a 6mm AI, so I will be buying a .243 barrel and ream it. My question is; which is better, the E.R. Shaw or Adams and Benett barrels? Both are in my price range, so that's not an issue. I would like the longer 26" barrell that E.R. Shaw offers, but the one gunsmith I have asked about them didn't like them. He said they foul faster and he has had a couple "failures". He didn't specify whether "failures" meant it failed to shoot tiny groups, or whether it blew up or something. I would appreciate any input on this.
