For those of you not in the know, PROOF builds lighter, stronger and more accurate Barrels for long range precision — specifically, they build carbon fiber barrels. More than one of our most skilled long-range range friends have described them as “possibly the most accurate barrels in the world.” PROOF Research announced recently they’re offering new barrels for their Savage rifle.
Here’s what they told us:
PROOF Research announced today that they are offering pre-fit carbon fiber barrels for the Savage rifle, one of the most popular platforms for gun owners to customize. The pre-fit carbon fiber barrels from PROOF Research can be installed without the assistance of a gunsmith, although some special tools are required.
“By designing a carbon fiber barrel specifically for this platform, we’ve made it easy for Savage owners to extract every last bit of accuracy and handling performance from this iconic rifle,” stated Jason Lincoln, VP of Engineering and Product Development at PROOF Research. “Our barrels are up to 50% lighter than steel barrels of similar contour and cool 60% faster than stainless steel, resulting in virtually no point-of-impact shift during high-volume strings of fire. We believe there is no better choice for the custom gun builder who wants to build a precision long-range rifle.”
For the last several years PROOF Research has been proving that carbon fiber-wrapped barrels aren’t just a lightweight alternative to traditional steel barrels, but that they provide superior performance, including extreme accuracy, and unprecedented durability. By combining their unique manufacturing process with advanced technology composite materials and thermo-mechanical design principles, they’ve accomplished what others have failed to do in the past-match-grade carbon fiber barrels that weigh a fraction of traditional steel barrels while compromising nothing.
The pre-fit carbon fiber Savage barrels are currently being offered by Stocky’s (www.stockysstocks.com) and arrive threaded and chambered in a variety of calibers including 223, 243, 6.5 Creedmoor, 6.5×284 Ackley 6.5×280 Ackley, 7mm REM MAG, 300 WIN MAG and 22-250.
