Are there performances night and day different? I couldnt tell you as I have never owned a cristiensen barrel.
Long range shooting is a process that ends with a result. Once you start to focus on the result (how bad your last shot was, how big the group is going to be, what your buck will score, what your match score is, what place you are in...) then you loose the capacity to focus on the process.

Re: Carbon wraped barrels

Depending on your barrel blank, caliber, etc. you can get different contours for your barrel. For example you can get a couple different sizes in a .338 type blank.

Re: Carbon wraped barrels

I have a 7mm 30 inch rock creek abs carbon wrap barrel, and shoot like dream. When I shoot this barrel out I'll replace it with the exact same kind. Rifle weighs 9.9 pounds with NightForce 50 mm scope.
