I am looking for a barrel for my build. I have heard that BCM makes good barrels and something around that price range would be great.

What do you recommend?

BCM does not manufacture, they assemble other companies parts. Daniel Defense and Noveske make their barrels and are both top of the line.

What do you want to do with this rifle? You wanna do hoes through holes, mag dumps or somewhere in between? Also what length you looking for?

Looking for good accuracy but definitely not a bench rifle. This will go on my 'go to' rifle so it has to be a do it all. I am thinking 16" barrel

Centurion 16"mid standard profile. $318. Noveske accuracy $100 cheaper. Shoots great even when hot.

Less expensive options are BCM and DD. Either of those should serve your needs very well. Maybe look at Spikes as well.

Still doesn't change anything, and a lot of "manufacturers" don't manufacture their parts, Noveske's barrels included.

I did. I don't know if all the hype is true but from everything I read it should last me the rest of my life with my shooting schedule . My centurion barrels is also more accurate that my rra non chrome lined hbar if that tells you anything.
