I got a great deal on a 20" stainless heavy taper on their black Friday sale last year, something like $130 shipped. It shoots great. Maybe they will do the sale again this year. Dave

Absolutely! And I would put 10 or 20 rounds of the same ammo you are going to be testing through the bore to "season" it before shooting any groups. All clean 22 barrels like to have a basic amount...
