    Are stainless barrels better then regular steel barrels?

    A few years back I built a Mk12ish upper with a steel Daniel Defense 18" S2W barrel w/rifle length gas system. I haven't found any Mk262 ammo for it. However, it really shoots Hornady Superformance 5.56 75 gr. pretty good. I'm happy with it, it's a nice range toy.

    Take nothing I say personal, remember....it's just the interweb!

    RIP AC!

    Stainless is easier to machine than CS, so precision is easier. There are CS barrels more accurate than some SS bbls, even Cr lined CS can be more accurate than SS.

    Comparing Quality barrels only, generally speaking, CS iw/Cr lining is more durable and SS is more accurate.
    They are pretty similar though. A good Cr lines CS barrel can be capable of 1-1.2 moa based ib mons and tridents posts.

    If accuracy is the most important thing, go SS, and a good one.
