Cold Hammer Forging of barrels has been known for decades to produce the most accurate, longest lasting rifle barrels obtainable. The Cold Hammer Forging of barrels is accomplished through intense hydraulic pressure applied at opposing angles by carbide steel hammers. During the hammering process, a mandrel is inserted into the bore while the carbide steel hammers shape the barrel around the mandrel creating the chamber, the lands, and the grooves. In addition to the aforementioned benefits, the Cold Hammer Forging process creates a defect free bore and the most consistent chamber possible.

Excellent barrelI have tested 2 hand loads with this barrel: 77 TMK and 69 SMK, this barrel is SUB MOA all day long!! I get very little copper out of this barrel unlike other brands chrome lined barrels. Without a doubt one of the best barrels I own.
Barrel lifeI have a 12.5" CHF DD Barrel with over 12,000 rds going thru it and is still as great as day one. Wished DD would swap and give me a new one and put this in their museum.
