The barrel came well packaged and showed no signs of damage to the packaging. Looking at this pencil barrel you think that there’s no way that this can be accurate. That’s dead wrong! After honing the upper receiver and green loctiting the extension to the upper I was get 1” groups at 100yds with m855, I switched to some Hornady 75gn blacks and was get consistent.65-.75” groupings. I really wish I had some Federal Gold Medals to try out. I’m sure when I develop a load for this it will get even better. This barrel shoots better than my seekins and proof research barrels!
I waited to do this review until I had a chance to shoot it at a match and I’m sure this barrel is the reason I finished higher than usual. I’d definitely recommend it to others. The lighter weight definitely helped with the standing targets at 200 yds and the weight made swinging it around on the shorter ranges(5-35 yds) very snappy.
