***** Great barrel. Review by Brian
I've got 245 rounds through this barrel so far, and its performing better than its price would suggest. I'm consistently getting groups 1" and under even during load development. Most in the .7 to .8 range. It seems to prefer 140 grain and up, although I plan to try some 130 grain projectiles soon. Buy with confidence, this barrel is a great deal. (Posted on 1/31/2019)
***** Great shooting Barrel Review by MichaelK
Finally got the time to start the break in on my new AR-10 with 6.5 Creedmoor 20" barrel. It was a miserable day with 95 degree heat but so far this barrel is shooting pretty well. Looking forward to seeing how good it shoots as time goes on. (Posted on 7/2/2018)
*****Outstanding Review by Stephen
I purchased this barrel for my own build in 6.5 cm. NIB bolt carrier group, PRS stock and 15" free float guard. CMC 4 lb 2 stage trigger. 80% Polymer lower. This is a 1/2 MOA rifle or better with Hornady match ammo. The barrel seems to like 140 or 143 grain bullets best with its 1:8 twist. I have been able to duplicate the factory load accuracy with 4350 powder/140 grain Hornady bullets. Quite a remarkable barrel! (Posted on 2/4/2017)
