Default barrel quality

I noticed PSA sells uppers and kits with a chrome lined chrome moly barrel and they sell uppers with a chrome lined hammer forged chrome moly barrel. I"m not going to shoot enough to ever wear out a barrel I don't think, and I understand a hammer forged is suppose to be harder steel. Is there an accuracy advantage one over the other??? Any other advantage???
