. The main differences is that its government profile and 4150 cmv instead of 4140 cmv like the CMMG. I'm leaning towards the adams arms because of the better steel, but the CMMG has a thicker profile so it might be more rugged than the voodoo. anything advice would be great thanks.
Rob, CMMG barrels are made of excellent materials and are dimensionally
sound. Very few manufacturers will go out on a limb and make accuracy
claims because accuracy and shooter ability are different variables they have no
control over. Proflies have little effect if you are shooting semi-auto at the
usual distances of 100 yards to 200 yards. A heavier profile like DD's Strength
2 Weight would be better suited to full auto work, however, the CMMG barrel
you linked will deliver suitable accuracy and reliable longevity.
I own CMMG barrels, I install them for my friends and clients and, so far, they
are satisfactory in the accuracy department. CMMG's offerings are a good
value for the money.
Hope this helps,
