My range report of the F. J. Ferddersen barrel

I received my 18" F. J. Feddersen barrel the same day qtip did. Mine had a slight nick on the top of the barrel. I emailed the company immediately about the issue. The following day Fred Feddersen, the owner, called me himself to apologize for the mistake. He said that even though he was sorry this had happened to me, he was glad that by my reporting the issue he would be able to make changes to ensure that it would never happen to anyone else. As this conversation was on a Friday, it was arranged for a new barrel to be shipped out to me first thing Monday. Mr. Feddersen told me in the mean time to go ahead and try out the barrel I had on hand, assuring me that I would NOT be disappointed. And, I have to say, he was absolutely right!!! :D

Here's a pic of my 25 yd. ten shot group, stock trigger (upgrade coming soon) using CCI SV...



After seeing some of the groups I was getting, the nick in the barrel became the last thing on my mind. I actually started feeling bad for complaining about it in the first place. Mr. Feddersen called again on Monday asking how I liked the way the barrel had shot. I told him I loved it and my regrets about complaining. He assured me again, that I had actually helped him improve his company. My experience with the replacement barrel proved as excellent as the first. I would highly recommend an F.J. Feddersen to anyone that wants a highly accurate upgraded barrel. For the price it can't be beat! :bthumb:

That is a very nice group! 1st impressions are, this barrel is a contender for Kidd barrels. Are these barrels available in stainless steel or blued only? I only saw blued on their website.

Edit: I just looked at the website again and he only offers blued barrels.

OK, I'm interested. Does anyone have pics of any target at 50 yards, groups or USBR? Preferably with Wolf MT or better, and with a bolt that has been headspaced/pin'd, and a trigger job? This barrel looks like what I've been waiting for........ :t :D
