While trying to find a 7.62x39 barrel to replace my out of spec Shaw barrel, I stumbled on to this place: http://ballisticadvantagellc.com/home.php Has anybody heard of this place? Spotted this on another forum as a good place to get precision barrels. Any input appreciated.
AR performance does nice work. used there barrel and super bolt combo with m16 carrier for my first build. it was $360 free shipping for barrel, striped bolt, bolt parts kit and m16 carrier. I'm happy....
Thanks for that DEZ link. I talked to BA and they said it would be several months before I'd get a barrel and I wasn't to keen on trying another Shaw barrel. Wish I'd slugged it when I got it. I'd have sent it back. I do like the specs on the BA barrel though. .300/311. I could shoot 308 bullets with that. My Shaw specs .304/310. With a nominal bore that big, that leaves little room for grooves. That explains why it is so erratic.
I don't know who manufactured the 416R Stainless Steel barrel w/ cut rifling on my sons Delton upper kit, but it sure was shooting
sub 1 Inch @ 100 yards w/ both steel cased Russian commercial and even better with Winchester brass cased ammo...
All I did was slap my Simmons Whitetail Classic 6.5-20x44mm scope on the upper which I transfered from my 6.5mm PCC upper,
loaded the mag.took Five shots (Winchester ammo) on target (first shot was low right and then I worked it counter clockwise) at
100 yards and the results were this:
Needless to say I was quite happy with the results !
