If I were building an ultimate varminter and nothing is more important that accuracy with .223 ammo, who makes the best AR barrels out there. Not best bang for the buck. Who makes the best AR barrels?

Secondly, with a piece like that is it advisable to have an AR 'expert' do the installation?

Thanks for any advice

I stongly suggest the Bushmaster Varminter barrel. I have one and it shoots 1/4 MOA all day. In my mind it is THE BEST !

I would have an "expert" install the barrel. Hope this helps.

Can these be done to SPR contours and will one cost more than a Douglas?

I am very impressed with my SPR barrel from White Oak Armament. I believe they are Wilson blanks. I got it from JTAC.

Another +1 for WOA/Wilson barrel.

Also have a very good Colt barrel on a 6724 (24" Stainless)

I have always thought very highly of Krieger barrels, and still do, but this year at the National Matches at Camp Perry I heard quite a bit about Benjamin barrels and folks swearing that they’re better than Krieger. I might have to try one out, the guy is just up the road from me in Portland.

Anyone have more info on the Benjamin barrels? A guy was talking to me about these barrels and claiming the same thing - I thought he was full of it, but maybe this is something to look into for my SPR build, especially since they are supposedly in my neck of the woods!

There is a new AW Ban but as long as you have post-ban config. your fine. Or get your hands on a pre 94 lower. Which I am.
