Faxon Barrel 20" 1:6.5 twist
« on: January 08, 2019, 06:20:33 AM »
Looking to purchase this barrel.  Anyone have any experience in it in the AR Platform? Wanted to get to the 6.5 twist as my 1:7 was not doing the trick with the heavier bullets.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Have you checked to make sure you have a barrel reamed with the correct SAMMI reamer?  This was a problem earlier this year. Don't know if Faxon is up to speed on this matter

No.   How would I go about checking that?  Have to check with faxon themselves?
