Derrick @ Horizon (he posts here) does the best fluting I've seen...he has some different styles that are killer looking.

I've not had a fluted barrel yet. It seems like an awfully good idea to me.

Another system to lighten a barrel while retaining the stiffness of a heavy barrel is the "triangular barrel" that Remington offers on a few of its models.

You get three fairly wide flats, and three small sections of the original barrel radius at the points of the triangle, if I understand correctly.

I hear stories about the muzzle break cuts in these barrels taking loud to whole a new level - but I have not heard much of anything, pro or con about the effectiveness of the triangular shape as far as shooting performance goes.

Has anyone here some experience with these guns?

I like them they are just little different. Trick is getting the triangle in the right direction

I have one of the special runs of Triangle barrel VTR by Remington that had the longer 24 inch barrel and no muzzle break. It's a 22-250 and it shoots very well.
I found out totally by accident that it dropped into a Reminton 700 Varmint wood stock that a friend had that had been bedded. We were surprised that it fit so we went ahead took it to the range and first 3 shots were 1/4 inch and he never got his stock back.
Here it is the bottom one of course ..... Both of these are 22-250's

Looking at straight fluting, not really into the crazy stuff. kampfield has really competitive pricing but I'm waiting to hear back from Derrick

D-stroud, that's a nice VTR, I think Remington screwed the pooch by not offering un-ported VTR's. I might have gotten one of them. Looks killer in the wood stock
