Nice barrel

by -

High quality as you would expect from faxon. This barrel actually has a .308 bore and shoots .308 bullets very well. Perfect lightweight barrel for my hunting build

Excellent Barrel

by -

I bought this barrel for my first build, overall it is an excellent barrel. Right out of the box, before even having a chance to fully break it in, i was getting just over 1 MOA from bench with Hornady Black ammo . I would recommend this barrel to anyone planning on doing a 7.62x39 build.
