Are you sure it was a Jurras barrel.  

Lomont named his different chamberings with game animal names.

I know Jurras built a custom .30cal AMP he called the "Cougar", but don't know if it was his wildcat or lomont's.

The reference to Cougar spiked my interest so here are some scans from Mason's Book to help explain it.

Here is a photo of a 30 AMP made at the Auto Mag Plant.  Bob B made it and explains he made very few.

Here is a photo of Jurras's 30 Cougar.

Jurras tells how many were made by him.  It appears he used the same case design as Bob B did at Auto Mag.

Here is a Lomont barrel in 30 LMP with the Cougar etching.  Lomont used different game animals for each of his cartridge designs.  I assume that Jurras used the name Cougar because of Lomont.

As the text reads, the 30 AMP and the 30 LMP are different.

I had a 12" 30 LMP barrel at one time.  It had no sights on it with a similar profile to the Jurras Cougar shown above.   Unfortunately, I don't recall how it was marked.
