I am building my first kit and was wondering which barrel to use. I will be doing informal target shooting. The rifle will also be back-up home defense and it may spend a lot of time in the cab of my truck.
I can see pros and cons of each type barrel.
What are your thoughts?
Here's my take.
Light weight is well ... light.
An Hbar is theoretically going to hold accuracy a bit longer because 1) it will take longer to heat up 2) it will distort less at a given temp. But is heavy.
given that, it is up to you.
