Please tell us what kind of shooting you plan on doing, that you need a high degree of accuracy for.

The answer to your question is long and convoluted. Not clear cut at all.

if you want something that shoots 1moa or less (at 100yrds) w/ the right ammo i would look at a varmint or SPR type bbl.....

imo, there is little if any accuracy difference b/w a C-L HBAR or govt profile....the HBAR might be a little more accurate but only b/c of the extra mass helps w/ the vibrations, but i dont think it makes any difference

if you want the most accuracy (besides a dedicated varmit/spr/target bbl), try a non-C-L HBAR and ammo that runs well in it

all i am saying is, you can get 1MOA w/ a govt or HBAR, but dont expect too much...

I'd get a Noveske barrel, one of Dennysguns recons or anything Wes Grant wanted to sell me. I'm pretty particular. All of these barrels are a compromise between the M4 and the HBAR, often providing most of the stiffness of the HBAR while weighing no more than an M4.

HBARs are pretty much just unfinished barrels

Heavy barrels are used in precision shooting, but these are fine tuned works of art built with a meticulous eye on precise detail and rigorous QC measures

I do not think I would consider the HBAR M16/AR15 barrel for precision work. More accurate than a pencil barrel?

Probably after heavy use - yes

I have a HBAR 14.7 1/9 Bushy

And a LMT 14.5 M4 1/7

Both are Very accurate barrels

But the M4 LMT is my pick because its alot lighter than HBAR and is just as accurate as the HBAR
