They are CHF for strength, not accuracy. Not say they aren't capable of sub moa accuracy, they were just not intended to be target barrels!

The barrel are much more than quanitfiable stats. Material, twist etc come second in this case. In no other part does quality control and workmanship come into higher play than in a barrel.
I've been wanting to get a White Oak Armament upper but I'm not one to wait for mine on backorder for 6-12 months. I will look into a Noveske for my next build. They get a lot of praise and not much, if any, complaints.

Everyone's gonna be 6-12 months unless you find a dealer who put in his order a year ago.

According to white oak website: CURRENT LEAD TIME ON BARRELS IS A MINIMUM OF 20 WEEKS. LEAD TIMES ARE ESTIMATES ONLY.

I've got my eyes on this SDM barrel from white oak: http://www.whiteoakarmament.com/xcart/product.php?productid=17565 for my next build. I may put in an order for several and build up some customer uppers.
