Re: ABS Carbon Barrel Special to LRH members

Can you give us some kind of weight comparison on these barrels.
For example a Krieger #3 "Medium Sproter" .243cal at 24" long weighs 3lbs.
<font color="red"> Our M24 weighs 2lb, 6 oz at 24"; the Rem Varmint contour weighs 2 lb 3 oz. </font>
How would your carbon wrapped barrel compare weight wise.
This is almost as important as accuracy to some of us.
What is the barrel material, SST or Carbon Stl? <font color="red"> We do barrels in both materials. The chrome moly or chrome vanadium barrels are reserved for those hunting in severe arctic conditions or those super customs designed around extremely light weights.</font>
Also, what design is the Ti brake, can you post a pic. <font color="red"> The Ti brakes are a basic 18 port single expansion chamber for 30 cal and below. The 338 is a 24 port. Will get some pics on the website soon.</font>
And lastly, would it be possible to get these deals in .257 & .277cal, time is not a great concern. <font color="red"> The 257 is available with Satern, Krieger or Pederson blanks. The 277 is available from Rock now.</font>
And as a final question, Carbon material is not as good a conductor of heat as metal, where does the heat go from the steel liner. The outer shell of the carbon wrap acts as an insulator and you wont feel the heat come thru the barrel, but the inside liner should be pretty hot. Can you explain the physics of the whole concept. <font color="red"> PAN based carbon is not a good conductor of heat, however, we use a mesophase pitch based fiber that conducts heat around 400% faster than steel.</font>
Thanks in advance.
