The BCM SS410 I have shoots great. I haven't gone heavier or longer than 55gr XM193 but its 1-1.5 at 100 w/ a 4MOA Aimpoint H1. Not bad considering the dot covers a 4 inch circle at that range.

Whoever linked that ARP barrel is an ass, lol. I really didn't want another AR. Now I feel the need to build.

I thought about that barrel myself but it appears as if they don't produce it or at least it is currently out of stock.

Then how about one of the barrels from AR performance. With the R5 rifleing, melonite coating and wylde chamber they offer a lot.

Thats a sweet barrel right there if true. Melonite QPQ, R5. I dont care for the 4150CMV, but I will take them at their word its done correctly. I would just hate to find out it wasnt... I like 4140CM with Melonite QPQ. Its nearly impossible to F that up when manufacturing it.

Don't know.

I just like the guys at RA. They have hooked me up a few times over the years. Good people.

Look at it this way, Soooo many will tell you if it ain't 4150 cmv steel its not a real barrel. You know , machine gun steel. HA. You might ask them who makes the barrel for them. Not many do the R5 rifleing so that should thin down the makers. What I have read on there barrels they are a solid buy, better than many. And for that price!! I would like to put one away on a sheilf.

You could also look at the Cirterion "kreiger button barrels . Fulton is one of there outlets -http://www.fulton-armory.com/ar-15-barrels.aspx
They do have a couple SS Hbar match barrelsfor $200.oo.

...and I will tell those people they havent got a clue what they are talking about. 4150CMV is a steel used by some manufacturers as a selling point. From your comment I think you will do the same...

There is no reason a civilian needs or wants it as a barrel steel.

1) The M16 and M4 mil-specs DO NOT call for it as many salesman will tell you it does.
2) There is a specific mil standard (Mil-b-11595E) which is a required standard to follow when making a barrel out of this and ONLY IF YOU OFFER 4150CMV. The reason is this. In making 4150CMV you can goof up very very easy. The result of that goof up is a barrel that can explode. Even a barrel manufacturer IAW Mil-B-11595E can explode when used. Its extremely slight and has only happened a handful of times but the chance is there.

4150CMV is one of a half dozen barrel steels used in the industry...and only in the AR15 family. If other steels are not availible I would accept it, but it surely isnt my first choice. I would NEVER accept if from an unknown source...NEVER. My left arm is too valuble to me...I don't really want to lose it.
