This high quality Bear Creek Arsenal barrel goes through its entire production life in Sanford, North Carolina at Bear Creek's facilities. Drilling, reaming, rifling, and turning are all accomplished on their CNC machines under ISO-9002 Quality Systems, allowing Bear Creek to put every barrel through a 100% inspection and air gauging process, ensuring every individual barrel is flawless before it leaves their facilities.

This 18", 1:10 twist, SOCOM contour barrel is machined from 41V50 chrome moly vanadium steel, heat treated to RC 28-32 hardness, properly stress relieved, and has a durable parkerized finish. Chambered for the powerful .308 Winchester, BCA expects that it, along with any of their barrels 16" or longer, will hold a 1.000 MOA group at 100 yards when used with appropriate ammo and shooting techniques.

Gas Port: Mid-length, 0.082"

Note: This barrel is DPMS pattern and is not compatible Armalite pattern bolt carrier groups.

Sub MOA @ 200yards

So I purchased this barrel when it was on sale. I wanted an 18 inch barrel but it was my first .308 and wanted to make it a budget build. I have a cheap 4-12x40 scope on the rifle and I took it to the range today to get it sighted in. Started at 50yds no problem. Moved out to 100 to get it sighted in again no problem. Then went out to 200yds first group was high right so I made the adjustments and next group was low right. Made the final adjustments and bam quarter size group dead center. I would recommend this barrel for anyone who is a recreational shooter or hunter. I am very pleased.

Pulled me away from buying a higher end barrel.

I bought this barrel as a place holder more or less until I was able to order a higher end one for my build. I will not be ordering the other barrel, because this one has worked so flawlessly for me. Granted, I have less than 100 rounds fired, but I decided to break it out to the 1000yard range with military surplus ammo. At 600 yards I hit steel (12x24 plate), then at 800 yards I hit steel as well. At 1,000 I was never able to connect, but was watching rounds land in the vicinity of the target. Have great confidence in the barrel.
