    There are several things about this barrel I appreciate. I was shooting it today, confirming my zero for a match next weekend. One thing I noticed is that there was no heat mirage from the barrel after extended strings of fire. Second I could touch the barrel after 15-20 rounds. It was not comfortable per se, however it it was not 'burn you skin hot'. This may be pay off in some way in the future.

    The cost is hard to swallow at first, I think is is worth waiting and saving to get what I want.

    Having said that, I have two other rifles with Noveske barrels. They are sweet shooters at 1/2 the price. Just a bit heavier is all.

    After today's range session, I am really happy. My best group was 1/2" at 100 yards confirming my zero. A coupe others were 5/8", it was a lot of fun.

    The older I get, it is hard to put a price tag on joy. To me this was a few hundred dollars well spent.

    I am just a regular guy, trying not to screw things up too much.

    That would turn some heads at the range. Im always impressed buy guys who can get small groups with 556 at those distances.
