I recently bought the Bushmaster standard AR 15 with 20 inch in stainless, and it is accurate as hell. Which is better, stainless or chrome? Seems the stainless is more expensive.

What are you trying to accomplish with your rifle?

Chrome=acceptable accuracy and extreme durability

Stainless=greate possible precision in manufacturing/extreme accuracy.

I want to be able to hit a 10" pie pan at 400yds and I don't want my barrel to wear out even though I shoot thousands of rounds per year.

I choose military specification chrome lined barrels in my ARs and I choose stainless in my bolt action rifles.

When this one wears out, I assume I can have Bushmaster put in the Mil Spec chrome?
