Chad Compares Different Types of Rifling, Bore Uniformity Expectations, Consistency in  Headspacing, and More

Barrel manufacturing isn’t an art. It’s a science. Chad Weister and Kirk Young dive into the weeds of OEM barrel manufacturing in a recent Precision Rifle Media podcast. Chad and Kirk discuss the intricate process of making match-grade barrels in volume, providing deeper insight into material selection and the pros and cons of button and single-point cut rifling barrels.
