Due to the unprecedented demand for our AR barrels line, we are having to make some hard choices on production to enable us to fill the most customer orders. In order to maximize our production and deliver the most barrels WITHOUT sacrificing any quality we must run higher quantities of fewer calibers and variations per production run. Until this massive panic buying subsides we will only be producing barrels in the following calibers and fewer variations within these calibers. We will fill backorders for other calibers / variations when we are able. Lead time is unknown at this time.

 

.223/5.56
6.5 Creedmoor
.300 Blackout
300 HAM'R
.308 Win
.458 SOCOM

 

How does this affect the 300 HAM'R?

Since the 1-13 twist is the most versatile for all suitable bullet weights and we must produce this twist for the popular 11.3" length barrels we will only be producing barrels with the 1-13 twist rate. The variations we are going to focus due to past sales numbers are:

 

11.3" SBR (round)
16" Ranger (round)
16" Recon (round)
18" Tactical Hunter (fluted)

 

Once this "PANIC" eventually subsides, we will resume production of more lengths and profiles. If there is still a demand for 1-15 twist barrels, we will also resume production of them.

 

Twist Rate Overview:
1-13:
Shoots all bullet weights from 95gr to 150gr well. It is optimal for 130gr-150gr bullets. Bill’s personal choice is the 1-13 Twist as this is what he shoots the most of.

1-15:
Shoots all bullet weights from 95gr to 150gr well, however at extremely cold temperatures of below zero some 150gr bullets may become unstable. It is optimal for 95gr-130gr bullets.

 

Why we have two twist rates:

When the cartridge was originally developed we were relying on A1680 powder and we couldn't safely reach the velocities we wanted for 150gr bullets. So, we focused on 125gr-130gr load development and the 1-15 twist tested (we tested 1-11.25, 1-12, 1-13, 1-14 and 1-15) out to be the most accurate with these bullet weights. Fast forward to when we discovered CFEBLK and we found that we were no longer limited to 130gr bullets, that we could actually equal the time proven .30-30 Win velocities with 150gr bullets at safe pressures. At this point we did more testing and found the 1-13 twist to be optimal for 135gr-150gr bullets and it eliminated the possibility of a 150gr bullet becoming unstable in extreme cold weather conditions.

 

We will be filling 1-15 twist barrel existing backorders.
