Hello all,

I'm building my third AR and I want to build a good long range varmit rifle. I'm thinking 22 to 24" barrel. I don't want a bull barrel, and I want to be able to attach a flash hider. Any suggestions on make or where to find such a barrel?

Thank you

What is your desired bullet weight/grain? The higher twists usually like lighter stuff and opposite for lower. As an example, my remington bolt in 1X9.4 has an affinity for 50 grn.

1:8

I think you can get a bravocompany 20" stainless with that twist and a wylde chamber for 300. Too bad rainier is out of their 225$ match barrels...

You can buy the 20" RRA national match barrels for 260 as well. I had one of their uppers with that barrel and it shot very well.

Blackhole Weaponry 1:8 twist. They are right around $300. You can't beat that barrel at twice the price.
