What are the pros and cons of a 20 inch national match heavy barrel vs a USGI Government type 20 inch barrel? I am leaning toward a Bushmaster kit. There is a $10 difference in the price. Is there a big difference in the barrels for the price, or is the weight of the barrels the only diffence between them?

Heavy Barrels heat up slower, but stay hot longer. They're very heavy.

Profile barrels are light, they heat up faster but they cool down faster as well.
