I'm not looking for another semi custom rifle...I just don't want to spend that much on another rifle. Does anyone sell barrels for standard hunting rifles with better twist rates? I would like to get a 1-8 or even better a 1-7 twist barrel with the same contour that will fit the stock on my CZ American 500 to replace the current barrel.

Shilen offers a couple of 1:8 variations. ER Shaw also offers 1:8 barrels. Pac Nor offers all kinds of fast twist .243 barrels. I would personally prefer Shilen or PacNor to ER Shaw, but they are an option for price sensitive projects.
