The new carbon fiber barrels are changing the hunting and shooting industry. These barrels are up to 64% lighter and stronger than steel barrels. They also help the barrel to cool faster by transferring heat better than steel.
These barrels are part steal covered with carbon fiber. The barrels are the same thickness. This cuts down on the weight of the gun while making the barrel more durable for hunting and shooting.
Most bolt action rifle barrel will run $830 and AR barrels run $930. These barrels are not cheap but still affordable for those of us that do not tell our wives how much they cost.
This video demonstrates how the carbon fiber barrels from Proof Research are making huge improvements.
