Advanced Barrel System

Does anyone have any experince or opinion about the carbon wraped barrels from Advanced Barrel System.
I'm looking at building a long range hunter that is light enough to back pack with.
Thanks

Re: Advanced Barrel System

If you want a carbon barrel then ABS is the way to go. Although their carbon base is a little heavier than Christensen's, their methods of applying the carbon are far superior and tolerances are held much tighter. Advertised also is the ability to cool quicker than Christensen's. I played around with my ABS a little before it got sent to the smith for chambering and I have to say it was very impressive. Straight as could be.
Good luck.
