This 6mm ARC barrel from the Ballistic Advantage Premium Black Series is an excellent choice for anyone looking to build or modify an AR-15 with a 6mm ARC focus. The 6mm ARC round is a popular choice for those looking to shoot with precision and have a low recoil profile, along with more than adequate ballistic and tactical potential. With a .243 caliber projectile, it will allow for great accuracy, while providing a better ballistic coefficient and a larger grain weight on target. This Premium Black Series barrel is at a length of 18 inches, and it is machined from 416R stainless steel and then finished with a corrosion resistant black QPQ coating. This barrel is made for both accuracy and durability thanks to this combination of materials. Ballistics Advantage prides themselves on the accuracy of their barrels and this model does not disappoint – it carries the same-MOA at 100 Yards guarantee. The inherent accuracy, power and BC of the 6mm ARC make this more than just a high spec barrel – it is a premium tactical option for those who want to optimize incrementally in the intermediate range calibers.
- 6mm ARC
- QPQ corrosion resistant coating
- 1:7 twist rate
- Extended nickel boron coated M4 feed ramp extensions
- Rifle-length gas system
This barrel is a solid choice due to the rifle-length gas system it uses as well. The slightly larger recoil can still be tamed with this rifle length gas system a bit. It is a barrel that will make any 6mm build a quality one. At the price point, it’s hard to find a better barrel for the 6mm ARC from a specification perspective. The barrel is made for a .750 gas block which is the most common size seen in AR parts, allowing a lot of flexibility, but also keeping a lean profile. The extended M4 feed ramp extensions are nickel boron coated which is one of the trademarks of the Ballistic Advantage Premium Black Series, as it comes on all of the models that are classified as such. They do help ensure the overall functioning of the build this barrel is used on, as this is a tactically oriented cartridge and therefore prioritizes reliability and functionality.. A fine offering in a barrel, at a reasonable price point, this Ballistic Advantage barrel in 6mm ARC, is an offering that won’t disappoint.
