25, I had a Springfield rebarreled a number of years ago with a medium-heavy, 26" 3006. At the time, I used a Redfield 8X AO scope..  I have a target on the wall of my gun room with some very good groups, one of which is .475" center to center, using 210gr Berger bullets at 100yds. The barrel has a 1-in-10 twist.

Even with my somewhat limited experience with Shaw barrels, I would recommend them. I believe they use Savage actions, which seems to be a favorite these days.

Good shooting.:thumbs:

I have two rifles i had barrelled by ER Shaw . One is my Sako 257 Ack and the other is My Ruger 77 in 240 Wby. both rifles group 1/2 to 3/4 in at 100 yards which is great in sporter weight rifles. I would use Shaw again in a heart beat.  Just remember a rifle will shoot no better than the bedding job you do after getting the action barreled no matter who chambers and screws the barrel on for you.

25Souper.......this is an old post I am replying too but............

I have a Savage 110 left hand rifle that I had ER Shaw rebbl from a 22-250 to a 7mm-08 back in about 1972.  The 7mm-08 was still a wildcat then.They eliminated the bbl nut and screwed it in as per most other rifles.  The bbl is 18.5" and of medium wt somewhat like a 788.  I put it in a Fajen semi inleted stock and mounted a Burris mini 2-7X scope on it.  The gun was small and a full size scope was to out of place and took away from the compactness I was looking for.  It shoots as well as I can hold.  I have always been pleased with their work. 

They do now offer their own bbl actions I see.  They use the Savage line of actions too.

The current ER Shaw actions are made by Savage.

I have a Siamese mauser barrelled for a .45-70 by E.R. Shaw. It does not feed perfectly but is my all time favorite rifle. With a 350gr. cast I can get clover leafs at 100yds. I know some won't believe that so I just have to take them to the range. Love the gun. It has to be about 15 to 20 years old. I welded a new bold handle on and that all I have done to it.
