I'm in the process of an SPR build and would like to know who makes the best SPR barrel. I'm leaning towards one of the medium profile SPR barrels
So who makes the best? MSTN, Noveske, Denny's Guns, etc.

...which is to say, they're all good choices, and the overwhelmingly vast majority of shooters will never be able to achieve the accuracy that the barrel is capable of if the trigger puller is removed from the equation, which is why benchrest shooters go to such extraordinary lengths with gun rests and shot bags and lead sleds to remove every possible bit of human error from the system. Buy from a quality company and you won't be disappointed. I bought mine from ADCO (a White Oak Armament SPR barrel).

Even the best barrel will not always produce the best groups with just any ammo. You will have to try a lot of different brands and bullet weights and bullet shapes and maybe even develop your own particular loads for each particular barrel. And of course a lot of quality trigger time is a must as well

My Kreiger is terrific, but the CLE Douglas is also excellent.

THE FOREND IS THE KNIGHT'S M4 LONG FREE FLOATING RAS, THE SAME AS USED ON THE SPR MK 12 MOD 1.

HOPE THIS HELPS.

Thank you Wes, much appreciated....

WOA, Lothar Walthar...I had a 10.5" 1/8 LW barrel that would spit 75 Hornady 1 moa. Got rid of that one. My 10.5 LMT with a 2 stage RRA trigger will throw the 77SMK (hand loads) .75 MOA. Yeah I was shocked too. I would love to see what the 18" LMT would do. Not selling the LMT.

I've had really good luck with White Oak Armament barrels. My WOA SS 18" SPR barrel/bolt attached to a Vltor upper with BCM bolt carrier consistently shoots .5 moa with my handloaded Seirra 69 grn. bthps.

My Noveske is more accurate then I will ever be. Just pick any of the ones listed above.
