    If you can't see the pics, then just let me know, and I'll redo the original thread but this time with Imgur pic links.
    First three photos arenít loading for me but I can see all of the other ones.

    Everything looks good, thanks!

    I picked up a what is supposedly a DD made barrel in Ballistic Advantage's Hanson profile and was looking for some data to compare it to, so far you have the only good data on DD lightweight barrels.

    Im hoping this profile will help with the heat degradation while still keeping the weight down.

    I just got finished with Buck Doyles LR scoped rifle class. I ran a 18in 223 wylde white oak armament upper and we took my gun out to 1100m with just imi 77 grain on 12in targets. I also saw a 14.5in (wilson combat stainless) and 16in (bcm kd4 upper) midlength guns easily make it out to 800m so those are all attainable distances for sure. What i also learned is that in a spr'ish role i wanted a little more magnification to successfully range and identify my target and imo you dont need a 18in 556 gun to make effective hits within 556s effective terminal envelope. I found myself wishing i had brought my 14.5 with sf mini while running around the mountain desert at 10k feet haha. I was using a 4-16 NF atacr and found myself ranging at 14 to16 and dialing down to engage targets between 9 and 12 magnification for the most part. As long as your gun can give you sub 1.5in 10 round groups then it will be a solid performer assuming you arent the underperforming variable. Also, bubble levels are really helpful past 500m.

    I used to have a 6-24 PST on a 308 bolt gun. Even at 1000 yards I was never shooting above 16 power. Sold that and bought a NF NSX 3-15 and shot that scope at 12 power at 1000 yards.

    If I were you, I'd look at a lower powered scope. More like a 4-16 to better fit the rifle.

    No dude is going to get shot in the chest at 300 yards and look down and say "What is that, a 3 MOA group?"

    I recently got a Sightron S-tac 3-16x42 scope and I'm very pleased with it. I think it's a great mag range for an SPR type rifle. Might wanna check those out.

    I grabbed one of these, too, and will be putting it into a 14.5 build that I'll be finishing in the next few weeks. Very interested to see how the final product ends up. I was stuck between getting one of these and a Noveske Afghan barrel, and will probably just end up building an Afghan upper with a Leupold 3-9 on it...

    Also, my bolt gun wears an ATACR 4-16F1, and it is a badass little optic. I'd really recommend one as a mid power variable. I don't have a massive breadth of experience with optics... because I landed on a near perfect one after some serious research.
