    Ok so I'm trying to build a hog/coyote rifle from a lr308 platform but can't decide what barrel to put on it I'm looking at a rainier arms ultramatch or a fulton armory criterion both in 20in?

    I can't really help you, but, I have a fulton criterion on my M1 Garand and it shoots well and easy to clean.

    I don't like threaded tipped AR barrels. It just adds to the length unless you are planning on a muzzle brake. I also like longer barrels for the free velocity. I like heavy barrels because they don't heat up as fast. My AR 10 friends seem to buy the 1:11 1:12 twist rates. to shoot 175 or 168 gr.

    For the cost of the ultra match, why not get Krieger, Pac-nor, lilja stainless 1:11. My most accurate AR is a 24 inch with a match grade stainless fluted 3 pound 8 oz
