    If you don't really care about accuracy a ton, I would just pick the barrel that looks cooler.

    I haven't owned a KAK barrel, but shot a season on my Faxon 14.5 match gunner. That tube seemed to like lighter bullets much more than heavier ones. The only load it was true sub moa for was my 50gr federal varmint. It didn't care for any 77's.

    Since Faxon I have tried Rainer and BRT. The rainer was a little gassy, but a laser beam with the 77's. The BRT is my current and looks like a good tube to me.

    I've had quite a few Faxon barrels, 5.56, 7.62x39, 9mm, 308, 6.5CM. they've all been good, not a single lemon.

    I've also got several KAK 7.62x39 barrels, and they are excellent. Of course, I'm only shooting Wolf steel case ammo, though, when it comes to 7.62x39.

    Cmon dude.....OP is asking about Faxon barrels and you recommend Proof Research. If the OP had PR money he wouldn't be asking about budget barrels.

    always love these threads. On snipershide a guy is asking about budget handguards for his niece and guys are throwing Geiselle.

    OP, and others for that matter, don't laugh but Anderson barrels are green mountain blanks for what it's worth and not bad on a budget. I've not personally built with them but a buddy has 2 and they shoot pretty well

    Shopping for a barrel at the moment is a waste of time (OOS Every Where) Might try for a LaRue barrel?

    You can always pay for a pre-order on a quality barrel and go from there. In the time people lose continuously waiting for things, they can prepay and get a quality product when it comes in rather than settling for a lesser product.
