Details

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.

The Daniel Defense 16” 6.8mm SPCII S2W® barrel is designed with a strength to weight profile (Daniel Defense's Heavy Barrel), a 1:11" twist rate, and a Mid-length gas system.

All Daniel Defense cold hammer forged barrels are made from start to finish in our state-of-the-art facility located in Black Creek, GA. In keeping with our heritage of not cutting corners, all cold hammer forged barrels feature a forged chamber and highest quality exterior coating. These barrels will prove themselves to be more accurate and last longer than a barrel that has cut or button rifling.

    Wanted a 6.8 SPC III for a while. Decided to build a new upper. Wished DD offered a stripped upper I could get my hands on. This thing shot 1/2 Mil groups the first week using my V11 lower and a Vortex Razor HD. Have it mated to a Wilson Combat Upper using a Daniel Defense BCR. Will be finishing it out now that I like it so much with a WC lower. Very fun gun to shoot. S2W profile is a little on the heavy side but the added weight makes it a very soft shooter. This is the ultimate Hog Gun. Just trying to decide on what optic to leave on it. Working on reloads now. It is a little expensive to shoot.

    Preliminarily, I'll give it all stars. I have shot less than 200 rounds but thus far (still tweaking loads) it shoots sweet. Nice tight bolt/lock-up, the chamber did not need polishing, rifling looks good (I have not bore-scoped it yet).

    I did not want a stainless barrel on this build and the functional benefit of the 16-18" jump is much greater than 18-20". SO in my opinion, 20" is more weight to benefit than I wanted. I also like the profile. I've just not been a large fan of the lightweights where the segment behind the gasblock and in front of the chamber is thinner than that in front of the gasblock to muzzle. Just like a bowstring, barrels vibrate when used.

    And if I counted right, there are 5 lands. Now, all things being equal, I prefer 5 lands to 4. Six lands is good as well but on a .277 5 might be a tad easier to clean.

    $150 steel is good. The crowning is as well. Well packed and shipped. And, because I am in TN, they GA and it in stock at the time, quick too.

    And did I mention a mid length too. I have no timing issues, no finish blems. It is a good barrel.
