I have had the opposite experience, the best barrel I have ever owned was a Maddco, it shot in the .100 and I have bought Maddco as my first choice. I have seen Maddco barrels win National competitions and been beaten by guys using these barrels. I have never used a Swan barrel but have used Pac Nor, RDT, Hardy, Benchmark and Shillen.

Had a TSE barrel installed by Swan and it shot 3 shot 0.5moa allday

Had TSE put a few of their own barrels on and work was top notch just took a bit longer than I woulda liked

Never bothered with Maddco

G'Day Fella's,

Mitch, I'm probably biased about this, and I have never owned a Swan barrel.

There is a reason why MADDCO barrels are so difficult to obtain ................ there is a long back log of orders for them.
This is because they are so good (One of the Best barrels made), and everybody wants them.
This leave to door open to others, to fill the void (enter Mr Swan, etc).
Accuracy International made their name using MADDCO barrels, and a whole heap of other people (like myself), have used them for years.

I could go on but I'm sure you get the picture (they are worth the wait!).

Doh!

What calibers do you chamber your Maddco barrels in Homer and what do you use them for?
