Good for Remington! BTW.....DPMS has really good barrels and my scoped 20" HBAR flat-top shoots constant five shot .60 groups (69MK) and some smaller (52mk) at 100M. I'm not a fan of complete DPMS rifles but I built a real nice lower with one of their stripped lowers. All the holes are in the right places and the finish is better than my Colts.....go figure, Mike.

Yes.... GOOD!!!! Not every one is in the Military and needs a 1/7 CL M4 profile barrel. Not everyone is a college student living in a dorm and living out some fantasy video game scenario.

Some folks that use AR's use them for hunting and target shooting. Both require accuracy far beyond what a 14.5 CL'ed, 1/7 twist M4 profile barrel will deliver.

DPMS makes some good and accurate 1/9 and 1/8 SS barrels. So does RRA.

i agree not everybody needs a chrome dipped shalalie.

i do disagree chrome lined is not good for hunting. if my chrome lined hunting barrel is no good i would get another gun. just so happens it is GTG, not 14.5" mind you.


there are good barrels, really good barrels and the best barrels...

I'm glad your CL barrel is accurate.

Ever taken it and shot prairie dogs at 400 yards?

How about ever taken it to a organized target shoot? Especially one with money on the line? If so, how did you do?

im not much of a bench commando and no doggies in my neck. sounds like fun if they where around.

but ya, i dont think i would be taking a dpms if i was into shooting for money either. i got a savage .308 bolt and other options...

anything sub MOA works for me.

Actually.... DPMS SS barrels are usually very accurate. So are Olympic UM barrels.

I'm glad yours is too.

I just build an AR for a guy using a DPMS SS barrel. After some load development the barrel is a consistent sub 3/4 performer. Most all groups are around 1/2 (slightly over), but the owner is hoping to go up to a 32 or 36X power scope. I have also suggested using Lapua brass and Match primers for more load development.

We also shoot 5 or 10 shot groups.

How is yours doing?

WOW, that is an incredible performer. I have shot a slew of Noveske N4 barrels and have never gotten that kind of results. ( They are considered one of the best CL barrels on the market.)

What brand, type, chamber, profile, length of barrel do you have?

What ammo and optic do you use? Also what type of trigger do you use?

I've shot Colts ( and darn near every thing else) and have never gotten a true 3/4 MOA shooting CL AR barrel.

Can you give me the specs on your setup?

not sure who sourced the barrel but the gun is CDD. its shoots TRU 55gr. and PP m193 as good as i can shoot.

cant say i have ever seen a true 3/4 MOA M4 either but for hunting/ect. it matters not to me.

now it if was to want to shoot in paper/bench matches, thats what they make match barrels for and again DPMS is not my first choice.

So your gun does not shoot as you said it does??????

If you do not shoot matches (bench, NRA HP, etc?...then how do you know what works and what does not??

it shoot exactly what i said it shoots, sub MOA. why are you busting my balls?

your the one who's claiming to know what works and what does not in a paper rifle match. if DPMS works for you then great.
