You cannot compare a BCM barrel against either. A better comparison would be against Colt or Daniel Defense. Bushmaster barrels are nothing special and Noveske barrels are a step above all of them in many regards.
FWIW- we attempted to go shooting today and I was able to put 30 rounds through BCM barrel I used to build my wifes gun. It shot about as straight as anything. Definitely worth the 209.00 I paid for it.
