Nothing wrong with the Vang ob if you want to be able to increase performance with "standard loads" it does that very well, but with the new loads the standard barrel works fine.
You and I have recently buried the hatchet so I will be cordial.
There is a huge difference between opinion and experience. An opinion based on second hand knowledge and having shot both basic the 500 and the modified one are two different experiences.
You are wrong. But we can still be civil, yes?
