    If in stock about a month depending on Customs,

    Price depends on barrel & exchange rate, 1K & up here inc gst & freight.

    Those are Bartlein SS Barrels, not Proof Research carbon ones ;-)

    Raw, as they come, unchambered & approx 1" longer weights.

    26" #2B 6.5 1.655kg Bartlein
    26" #2B 308 1.595kg Bartlein
    28" #3 .284 1.845kg Bartlein
    26" SL .308 1.375kg Proof Research Carbon wrapped
    28" S .338 1.670kg Proof Research Carbon wrapped

    The Carbons are significantly lighter

    Not cheap now, looking around $17-1750 at the moment.

    Worth remembering they have cut not buttoned rifling.

    Yes some Bartleins left, no trouble to get more

    The Defiances are currently around $31-3200 depending on configuration.

    I know proof has been around a hell of a lot longer than Hardy carbon barrels, so what are the major differences between the two?
    Looking at a 6.5 creedmoor running the 143gr eldx precision hunter ammo. Hardy have apparently had a spec reamer designed specifically for that ammo.

    Proof Research are a cut barrel, like Kreiger, Rock Creek, Bartlein etc not a button barrel.

    The Carbon Fibre is applied a completely different way.

    All the Proof Reserach barrels I have used so far have shot incredibly well.
