Gotta disagree somewhat between PSA "Premium" with Del-Ton.
Psa Premium Barrels are from FN. This is a top quality Military type Barrel with better metal alloys in it to keep strength and accuracy. It's Machine Gun worthy, along with being Chrome Lined w/ Chrome Bore and Extension.
Look to see who makes Del-Ton Barrels and compare, as I don't know who makes their Barrels.
PSA also having the PTAC Lineup, their Barrels are very accurate from Photos I've seen on another Site I frequent, and while the Barrels are NOT CL, they apparently do shoot with very good accuracy and everybody that has these are quite pleased with them. Nobody has mentioned, but I imagine these Barrels are 4140 and not 4150. Nothing wrong, just that Barrel won't hold up as well from the heat if you decide to do Mag Dumps frequently, and not having Chrome Lining to help protect.
I'm also seeing PSA taking care of their Customer's very well, if they run into problems with the PTAC Lineup.
