    Stainless is more accurate. CHF is more supposed to be more accurate over time. Chrome lined lasts longer at the expense of accuracy.

    that said, my 18” barrel is chrome lined and not CHF. It’s also still one of the “best” (as John said, kinda depends on definition) on the market. Was the barrel of the marine corps marksman team for years (not sure if it still is), can hold sub-moa groups at 800 yards with the right ammo if the shooter does their part, and I can consistently make shots at 1k yards with it if the wind isn’t too bad. That barrel is far more capable than I and I’m not really sure how much “better” it can get from there. So who the fuck knows?:crackup:

    I guess 'better' would be accuracy and durability.

    I think i would want both in 1 barrel. Or a happy medium with 1 barrel.

    In the end, i think accuracy is the most important. Why try to improve on target shooting if you're using a less accurate barrel. I realize I'm shopping for barrels in the budget dept, but that's what noobs do right? :)

    Just figured out that my Sig XMacro mags work in my CZ P10C. Now I can pay $65 for magazines that rust and add 1 extra round of capacity to my CZ. No slide lock after the last round though.

    To be honest I wouldn't worry too much about accuracy at 10.5". I'd lean more towards consistency and longevity. CHF and heavier profile. Effective range from a 10.5 is significantly reduced as it is and at those distances, you're really only worried about minute of man anyways. Or at least that would be my purpose with shorter barrels. My range days with those are going to consist of higher volume of fire in shorter time at shorter distances. I'm not trying to hold sub moa groups. I'm trying to maintain minute of man groups, even as the barrel gets hot, and CHF, heavier profiles, & chrome lining will help with that. Just my .02.

    It was definitely an experience. And a lot of fun. Definitely try it if you get a chance. I keep trying to immerse myself in different shooting environments to learn more and so far it's working. I can't overstate the value I'm finding in running these 3 gun comps with a well run & creative crew.

    what do you mean when you say 'heavier profiles'? Find the heaviest upper available?

    Got my Franklin binary triggered lower today....Only took 33 mins to get the ok from the FFL. (rollseyes). Better than a delay that i get 75% of the time.

    I'm having a helluva time figuring out what i want to build it into. Definitely doing AR Pistol...I was leaning 300 blackout, 10.5", just because. But damn, ammo is on the high side.

    Jed covered the barrels so I’ll just go into the .300blk discussion. I’d personally advise against it… for now. It’s a very niche caliber and, in my opinion, just over complicates life for a newer shooter. It is a very cool diverse round. But niche nonetheless and expensive to shoot for what it is. So fill some of the other more practical roles in your arsenal first, then circle back to .300blk, get you a suppressor, and have fun shooting subs on occasion.

    I like 300 blk a lot.
    But before I built one I had a few 5.56 in different configurations and a couple 10s. So if you have covered the “mandatory “ calibers then jump on the 300 bandwagon. Everyone that has shot mine with subs and a can really love it.
