This barrel is made from 4150 chrome moly vanadium steel, which is a higher grade than the standard steel used on most barrels in this price range. (chrome moly is NOT chrome moly vanadium!) It is chambered in 5.56 and is extremely accurate, achieving sub-moa shot groups. This match 556 barrel would make an excellent choice for match shooting, 3-gun competition, or varmint/hog hunting with it's extremely light weight profile, 1:7 twist, and rifle-length gas system. This translates to the ability to maneuver easily, accurately shoot heavy grain match-grade or hunting rounds, and have a lighter recoil for quicker follow-up shots. She eats 75 grain bullets like candy and will shoot sub-moa if you can.
