I got to take a look at a couple of their new carbon wrapped barrels a couple weeks ago. Really sharp looking they come in a couple different color options.
Was on their web site and noticed they actually have a few in stock. Sure wish I was ready to build a new rifle these things look awesome!

They do look nice. I was surprised how heavy they are compared to similar proof barrel

I know some of the barrel makers aren't turning their blanks down below a #4 contour.
They're leaving the last few inches at .900ish, then adding more weight with CF wrapping.
Doesn't really make much sense

Interesting.
Does anyone know if they are doing this “in house”???? Or, who is doing it for them.
The cooling properties Proof has are proprietary because of their resin and the way they are “woven” not wrapped, and it is a highly guarded resin matrix because they use it in their aerospace program as well.
Does anyone have details???

That's just the snake oil that Proof feeds to the masses.

Proof is just mass producing ABS barrels. Nothing special about any carbon fiber barrels.
