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.

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.
