THE BARREL

PROOF RESEARCH CARBON FIBER

Guest post by Chris Polley, Marketing Manager, PROOF Research

There’s no question that hunting sheep requires a degree of artfulness, and a PROOF Research carbon fiber-wrapped steel barrel adds just the right amount of science and technology to the equation. PROOF barrels deliver significant weight savings over traditional steel barrels with zero sacrifice to durability or barrel life, as well as superior performance and accuracy.

The 20-inch Sendero Light barrel chambered in 6.5 Creedmoor used on the Ultimate Sheep Rifle features peak rigidity and strength, and with modern loads it'll deliver sufficient energy to take game as big as elk out to 600 yards. Weighing just 2 pounds 10.4 ounces, it’s light enough to be carried all day through the most challenging terrain.   

PROOF Research has an innovative barrel for virtually any rifle build. From feather-light carbon fiber-wrapped steel barrels that are up to 50 percent lighter than steel barrels of the same contour, to heavier steel barrels for more conventional needs, PROOF provides science-based solutions for any hunting or shooting scenario. —Chris Polley, Marketing Manager, PROOF Research
