I ended up getting a GM 20" fluted stainless. Couldn't afford the Kidd and got a great deal on the GM, so that's what I'm going with. I think it will be fine for my purposes.Champion? I know nothing about that barrel... ER Shaw's I have some input.. not as good as GM's IMO and I have owned 3.. 1 however I sent to Que when he was re-chambering and it does shoot MOAish with decent ammo... ALL my herd of KID/KIDD barrels shoot sub-MOA and with a variety of ammo and always very consistent.... no need for high end ammo with KID barrels unless you intend to compete. Pay more worry less... I have never regretted paying for anything with a KID/KIDD label.
:bthumb:That should tickle your fancy. GM for the money makes a barrel very close to Kidd. And for the money that is saying something. I have 5 Kidd and 4 GM. And I have ownned 2 more GM.
