I ended the auction and relisted to include the dies. This is a 14 inch stainless steel SSK contender barrel. It has light frame marks on both sides. The caliber is 375 JDJ. The barrel is very accurate and the magnaporting helps tame the recoil. The barrel is also fluted. A little history with, I purchased a G2 frame for this barrel, it would lock and not cock this frame put the marks on the sides of the SSK barrel. I tried other G1 era barrels on this frame and in all cases these would not lock and/or not cock. I believe the problem to be with this frame, I purchased a 30-30 G2 barrel, it locks and cocks on this frame with a firm close. I put the SSK barrel on a blue earlier G1 frame (happens to be a non-easy open), it locks, cocks, opens easily and functions fine. I've put around 20 rounds through it between load work up and sight in. I put a Vortex scout on it, I like the scope, but more eye relief at higher magnifications would be nice. It is listed as "Used". I do have brass and bullets, even some 375 bullet molds. These will be listed on the appropriate forum for sale if the barrel sells. About the dies, I purchased them new, no shellholder is included, I had used the shell holder for my 44 magnum dies. I wanted a caliber suitable for game larger than deer, I do have a 35 Remington, but have also come into the Encore handgun realm with a 30-06 barrel. Hence the reason for deciding to rehome this barrel. Trust me, it's a pretty barrel and a difficult decision. I ship to the USA, no shipping overeseas. Thanks
