    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

    I have a 338 cal bbl on order from them. Mike Rock at Rock Creek Barrels makes ABS"]http://home.alltel.net/mdegerness/products.htm]ABS Barrel Systems[/url] the turned blanks for ABS. They are turned and contoured before they are rifled. Contact Mike Degerness at ABS Systems for more info.

    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.
