***** Nice light accurate barrelReview by Alexander
Put 100 rounds breaking in and zeroing on my 308 build. Razor accurate at 100yds, 1 moa and better, and I'm only an average, training to get better, shooter. Worth the long wait. (Posted on 4/27/2019)
***** Tack Driver-Excellent QualityReview by ColoradoBob
This is a heavy contour barrel but with the fluting it is no heavier than a standard contour barrel. Quality and finish is top-notch. Bore scope inspection showed that the interior of the barrel is nearly flawless. Accuracy is amazing. My previous 18" "match" barrel that was on the receiver could barely hold a 2" group at 100 yards, this one is roughly 1/2 inch at 100 yards. Phenomenal accuracy, great finish and quality throughout. Very definitely worth the investment. (Posted on 1/21/2019)

We are committed to providing products that meet, or exceed, the expectations of our most discerning customers. We stand behind that commitment. From the moment you unwrap one of our barrels, as you configure it with your receivers and handguards, and as you fire it on the range or in the field, we want you to experience the unique elegance and uncompromising quality that we craft into every one of our barrels. We also stand behind our commitment to performance. All Ballistic Advantage barrels are guaranteed to give sub Minute of Angle (MOA) accuracy with match grade ammunition.1

If you find your BA barrel is not performing at the high standard of sub MOA accuracy, please first consult with Ballistic Advantage Support on their website. Usually, BA armorers are able to resolve any issues over the phone. If the issues are not resolved we will ask that the barrel be sent to BA for inspection.2 BA will either correct the problem or replace the barrel, or if the customer prefers, reimburse the purchase price of the barrel.
1 We define sub MOA as a group size of 1 inch or under at 100 yards with a 3 shot magazine fed group, or 5 shot single loaded group.
2 The customer is responsible for the initial return shipping costs of the barrel. If any defects are found, BA will reimburse the shipping costs and either replace or refund the original purchase price of the barrel.
