You can't go wrong with the GM, HT, 17 inch barrels. I purchased mine after reading how well they shot per Vincent, a good while ago, and I am glad I did. My GM,HT, is just as good as my more expensive, Volq. 18 inch, SS, barrel. I don't know what GM did with this barrel; however, it is a best buy for the money, in my opinion. They really held the chamber, and run-out to an excellence that is hard to compete with, and an excellent crown---perhaps, the tooling was new when this barrel was conceived, and results show on the grouping. Perhaps, the crown at 17 inches, landed right on a good node!!
The grouping at 50, with Blazer ammo, is not bad at all. The target ammo, should really be great. Try some SK Standard Plus, or Rifle ammo--these shoot in all my rifles very well.

I have read a lot of reviews on the forum about the different barrels and they all get good reviews but if I am going to spend money on one would like to get the best of the three.
If your just looking to get the most accurate barrel you can and not too concerned about the small difference in price, then between the 3 the Kidd or Feddersen .920 barrels are pretty much a tossup. Kidd has the 1/2" gaurantee and Feddersen stands behind every barrel they make so if you are not happy with them they will refund or replace. GM barrels can be hit or miss (no pun intended) but their heavy taper barrels seem to be very accurate for whatever reason.

The Kidd 20" taper gets my vote, it's has the same look and feel as the factory barrel on an LVT.

Not really on topic but ya need to do a reality check..... Southern IN along the I 64 corridor is anything but flat. From Evansville to Louisville KY its much like the Ozarks and even the lower elevation of the Smokey's.

JMHO......

Well my reality check was driving I-70 across through OH, IN and then I-74 through Illinois then up to Davenport. It was flat the whole way.

My normal routes driving back is up on I-80, the IN & OH turnpikes & its pretty flat up there too. So going the southern route through Columbus to go to, and through Dayton on I-70 didn't take me anywhere near I-64.

Flat is relative to where one lives, and I get to look at a 9,000 ft. mountain about 5 air miles away out my front door every day, and I live at 3200. here's a ~1,000 ft.+ higher un-named hill about 1/2 mile due east of me.

When I drive the usual northern route I try to get through all that s. Chicago metro area plus Gary, IN highway stuff has fast as possible.

Yea bear spray is the first thing to carry and use out here, with a firearm as a back-up. My PARAs are a bit heavy to lug up and down the hills (aka mtns) so my back-up is either a 329PD or 10mm.

The griz population is expanding and we're getting more hanging out in my area compared to the past s one has to be bear aware especially in berry & fall hunting seasons when the black bears and griz are packing on the weight for the winter.

I also keep my bear spray handy in the event of a two-legged encounter. That stuff will put you down & incapacitated fast.

With the bears you have to aim low with the spray since if they're charging you they'll run right under your initial aim. You want them to run through a fog of the spray.

But if you're in thick brush and get surprised at close range then spray the best you can.

Plus, try to have the wind at your back
