    AR barrel: as light as possible

    Looking at trying a lightweight barrel as the bull barrel with stainless suppressor gets heavy after a while. After seeing InRangeTV test the effects of heat on POI shift in modern pencil barrels vs old school Govt. profile ones, I am keen to get one. (It was a Faxon pencil they used but I'd consider anything.) Something in the 14.5-16" range preferably, with a 5.56 or .223 Wylde chamber.
    Cheers, Tom
