Hey guys I have a question, is it worth to buy a Fluted barrel? What is the difference?
Are they better because they are lighter?
The barrel I was looking a Yankee Hill 16", 1-7” Twist, Chrome lined.
What do you think?
Thanks....Hoss

They're not the best fish sandwich out there, but they're cheap and the fish patties are square.

Tofu.I've never actually had it, but I think maybe this is what it would feel like to walk on it.

If you want to save weight the lightweight barrels are usually the same weight or less and cost less than fluted barrels.

Fluting is one of those things that always divides people as far as benefits and detractors.

If you like the fluting and dont mind the extra $, go for it.

If its the only barrel you can find in stock and you really need it, go for it.

If its something you found in stock and are completely compromising what you want to build, at this point, id still go for it.

I love the fluted 18" barrel in my Stag 3G.

My Hogan 308 has a fluted Rock Creek barrel and I love it. The flutes help out with heat as well. Legion Firearms has some bad ass barrels too. And Noveske.
