Bartlein Barrels - Precision Crafted Barrels for Superior Shooting

Explore the world of Bartlein Barrels, where precision meets perfection. We specialize in crafting stainless steel barrels designed to elevate your shooting experience, catering to .308 Caliber enthusiasts. Learn more about how different factors, including contours and rifling, can impact your shooting performance.

Does Contour Affect Barrel Weight?

Yes, the contour of a barrel can influence its weight. Heavier contours can provide stability and resistance to barrel movement as it heats up during shooting sessions, helping maintain accuracy.

Does Contour Affect Shooting Performance?

Contour can indeed affect shooting performance. A heavier barrel can assist in reducing recoil and shooter fatigue, allowing for more rounds to be fired accurately over extended periods. However, lighter contours can also deliver exceptional performance.

Should Suppressors Be Used with Specific Barrel Contours?

Yes, using a suppressor on a heavier barrel can enhance shooting performance. The added weight of a suppressor can impact the harmonic vibrations of the barrel positively. For optimal results, we recommend using suppressors with medium palma contours or heavier.

Why is Single Point Cut Rifling Better than Button Rifling?

Single point cut rifling, as used exclusively by Bartlein Barrels, eliminates the stress induced in the barrel blank during manufacturing. In contrast, button rifling can introduce higher stress levels, potentially affecting bore sizes and consistency. Single point cut rifling is the preferred choice for maintaining precision and accuracy.

Why is Fluting a Barrel Important?

Barrel fluting offers several advantages:

  • Weight Reduction: Fluting removes material from the barrel without altering the contour, reducing overall weight.
  • Barrel Cooling: Increased surface area from fluting enhances heat dissipation during firing.
  • Aesthetic Appeal: Fluting adds a unique and attractive look to the barrel.

Fluting depth should be considered carefully to avoid harmonic issues that could affect accuracy. If you can't add fluting, it may indicate that the contour is too shallow.

Why is the Rifling on a Barrel Important?

The style of rifling can impact performance, and at Bartlein Barrels, we offer three types of rifling:

  • 4-Groove Rifling
  • 5R Rifling - Ideal for reducing bullet failure and enhancing flight due to its gentler angle on the lands.
  • Conventional-5 Rifling

The 5R rifling style stands out for its benefits in reducing bullet distortion and improving flight characteristics. While it's highly effective for most bullets, some exceptions exist, such as short jacket 6mm bullets.
