How accurate are they ? Yes. it depends on the quality of the "insert" but IF "good", what kind of accuracy at 25 and 50 Y ?

A properly installed quality liner should shoot as well as, or better than a new barrel.

Ballards may be weaker,
but they sure are neater!

If the right liner is installed, and the job done right, they will shoot as good as any factory barrel, and better than some factory barrels.
I doubt you'll get the accuracy of some of the high end custom barrels, but occasionally I've had a relined barrel that somehow did.

The theory on why they tend to shoot better is that the liner is usually not turned down to the same degree that a barrel is, giving less stress on it, and the joining material, whether it's solder, epoxy or Loctite, has a dampening effect on vibration, also leading to better potential accuracy.  Of course, you've got to start with a high quality liner in a straight hole...
