Bartlein Barrel SS 6mm B#11 Medium Palma

Discover the Bartlein Barrel SS 6mm B#11 Medium Palma, a high-quality barrel known for its precision and versatility in shooting applications. In this guide, we'll explore various aspects related to barrel contours, single point cut rifling, and the influence of suppressors on performance.

Do Contours Affect Barrel Weight and Performance?

Yes, barrel contours play a crucial role in both weight and shooting performance. Heavier contours offer better resistance to barrel movement and wandering when the barrel gets hot, ensuring more consistent shots. At Bartlein Barrels, we prioritize single point cut rifling, which minimizes stress in the barrel blank, making contour selection less critical compared to button-made barrels.

How Does Contour Affect Shooting?

Contour weight significantly impacts shooting performance. Heavier barrels provide improved stability, helping shooters handle recoil and experience less fatigue. This allows for extended shooting sessions with greater comfort. However, it's worth noting that lighter weight contours can also perform exceptionally well, challenging the belief that heavier is always better.

Should Suppressors Be Used with Any Barrel Contour?

No, suppressors should be carefully chosen based on the barrel contour. When using a suppressor with a heavier barrel, it often leads to enhanced shooting performance due to the added weight affecting the barrel's harmonic vibrations positively. For optimal results, it's recommended not to use a suppressor on anything smaller than a medium palma contour.

Advantages of Single Point Cut Rifling

Bartlein Barrels' commitment to single point cut rifling offers numerous advantages over button rifling. In button rifled barrels, especially with lighter weight contours, the stress placed on the blank is significantly higher, potentially affecting bore sizes. This is not an issue with single point cut rifling, ensuring consistent and precise bore dimensions. Additionally, threading the muzzle for accessories like muzzle brakes or suppressors is more reliable with single point cut rifling, preserving accuracy at the muzzle's crown edge.

The Bartlein Barrel SS 6mm B#11 Medium Palma is designed to deliver precision and versatility in shooting. Whether you're a competitive shooter, marksman, or enthusiast, the right barrel choice can enhance your shooting experience.
