The consensus with centerfire BR barrels is that about 100-150 rounds should show what potential a barrel has. If it won't shoot by then, it's time to cut your losses and move onto another new barrel. Granted, benchrest matches (either centerfire or rimfire) are decided by a few ten thousandths of an inch. That level of accuracy may not be necessary for some of us.
I second that thought and that is the way I think.... it must not had shot well and the person is moving it out for a new one....

Its the luck of the draw, but next time i get the 1022 itch, im going to scratch it with a kidd, just seems like its a better deal
I got 5 Kidd 20" barrels for a reason. After seeing 1st one shoot, and seeing 2nd one shoot as good as 1st I was sold on 3 more.

Good barrels.

IMO ... the more polished the bore, the more accurate and it takes less time to clean.

I know absolutely nothing about barrels

Okay, so I know a LITTLE about barrels--enough to make a bad choice.

Bought a Ruger Precision Rimfire in early 2019. Didn't perform well enough so I did some research and bought a Shaw barrel. That made it worse--so I figured I messed up the install (even though it seems straight forward). So I did some more research and emailed a gunsmith who is supposed to have a good reputation and he told me "you went backwards".

So I responded and said "would you be willing to fix it for your standard fee" and he never responded. Looks like I need to find another gunsmith (and probably buy another barrel).

That's all I know. Take it for what it's worth.

1st, Raz, what are your expectations/requirements for 'accuracy'.
Imo you dont likely need a gunsmith, you need to read and follow the accurizing tips here on this site specific to the 10/22 (there are LOTS).
I suggest you start a thread on your gun and issues so the wealth of experience and knowledge here can walk you through it.
