Faxon now has .450 BM Barrels (16")

I was looking through Faxon's site, and saw this...

Neat. I've always wanted one of their barrels.

I messaged them on Facebook, and they'll be offering 20" barrels, along with bolts, soon, as well.

Best,

my bud has used a few of their 223, 308, and 6.5 barrels and all have been shooters.

I remember a survey they put out about a year or so ago, asking what other chamberings people would like to see. Of course I put 450B! Glad to see they came out with it, but I wish they would have came out with 5r rifling like a lot of there other barrels, also a slower twist rate.

I'm sure it will be good, accurate barrel, like a lot of there other offerings.

That should be a good barrel for hunting.. I see the twist is 1:16 my current 16" 450 barrel is a slower 1:24. The listed weight looks like it would be lighter than my current barrel too. I just got a new 6.5 Grendel upper with a 16" Stainless Steel Faxon Gunner, match grade barrel.
