I've been thinking about barrels for a build I want to do. I think I'm set on a 1/8 twist, and have seen a few people mention WYLDE chambered barrels and that they are a little more consistent in their performance between 5.56 and .223. rounds.

What has anyone's experience been with WYLDE-chambered barrels?

I see Rainier occasionally has a good deal on Wylde 1/8 SS barrels, are there any other inexpensive options?

The 223 Wylde is pretty much the same as a 223 camber but with a longer leade. It is used in target barrels a lot due to using the heavier/ longer bullets

The wylde chamber is in between the 223 chamber and 5.56 chamber and has a longer throat than the 223 chamber that allows you to shoot 5.56 nato ammo safely a 223 chamber will show pressure signs shooting 5.56 nato ammo. The wylde chamber is accurate and it allows you to buy bulk nato ammo for blasting and is accurate for your target or hunting loads.

I have the Rainier 1:8 SS with the Wylde chamber and its very accurate.
