there have been a few threads on this topic before, some quite detailed and one in particular a little lively! You might profitably spend a rainy Sunday flicking through all the old threads on this topic and reading any of interest to you. Here's a head-start:

Many US 'smiths appear to be reluctant to slim down the barrels towards the muzzles, which is crucial to the 'liveliness' of the finished rifle.
