If you are looking to build a high-quality precision AR-15, the Ballistic Advantage 20” .223 Wylde barrel might just be the one for you. It is constructed from 416 stainless steel, which is highly regarded as the best steel for accuracy and features a DMR profile that also increases accuracy potential by reducing barrel vibration. The performance series of barrels feature a nickel boron coated extended M4 feed ramp extension for reliable feeding and a bead blasted finish on the barrel for corrosion resistance and reduced reflectivity. The muzzle is threaded 1/2x28, so you can attach muzzle brakes, flash hiders, or suppressors to the end of the barrel and the gas block diameter is .750” to accommodate a large variety of gas blocks. It also has a rifle length gas system that is designed for longer barrels that results in softer felt recoil. This premium series barrel will give you the advantage you need whether you are hunting or long-range competition shooting.

  • Great option for building an accurate and versatile AR-15
  • 1:8 twist rate for stabilizing mid-weight rounds
  • Durable bead blasted finish
  • Nickel Boron M4 barrel extension
  • Threaded for all 5.56 and .223 muzzle devices
  • Rifle length gas system
  • Guaranteed sub MOA accuracy with match grade ammunition
  • High pressure and magnetic particle inspected

The 223 Wylde chamber is designed to safely shoot both .223 Remington and high pressure 5.56 NATO cartridges for maximum versatility. This chambering allows you to take advantage of extremely accurate match ammo, while also having the ability to shoot cheap Mil-Spec surplus ammo to save money. Every barrel that leaves the Ballistic Advantage assembly line is high pressure and magnetic particle inspected to ensure every dimension is in spec. They are inspected because they believe in providing customers with a barrel that can shoot one-inch groups at 100 yards.

Ballistic Advantage proudly produces quality AR barrels that exceed very stringent demands. Their AR-15 barrels surpass the competition in precision and aesthetics. For barrels that deliver round after round consistently and accurately, choose Ballistic Advantage.

Great bang for your buck

I have assembled 3 rifles now using BA barrels. I have been thoroughly satisfied with the performance of all 3. All are sub-MOA @ 100 yards. Clean it thoroughly when it arrives and follow break-in procedures. These barrels are fairly priced and dependable.

Replaced my worn out barrel in my Cross the Coarse gun. All the loads I tested grouped between 5/8 and 7/8 inches at 100m. I would have like the barrel to have dimples drilled to help locate gas block. I had to eye ball it, but must be good enough because it functioned ok.
