This has been bugging me for a long time, and I'm sure you guys will explain it in a way I can understand

Thanx!

As I understand it, the thicker barrel allows for a stiffer barrel. With less "whip" as the bullet travels down the barrel, it's a bit more stable.

And if you don't like this version, I'll give you another one.

It's not necessarily that a heavier barrel is more accurate, it's more consistent. Things like heat and barrel whip will play less of a role with a heavier barrel. The other reason a heavier barrel is preferred is because you get a more stable shooting platform.

And here I thought bull barrels served as night sticks for braining perpetrators.
