Helix 6 Precision Introduces New Carbon Fiber Wrapped Barrel Blanks


Helix 6 Precision Introduces New Carbon Fiber Wrapped Barrel Blanks

When it comes to rifle barrels, they are most definitely not all created equal. Helix 6 Precision believes they make the best rifle barrels around, and they offer a good selection of options in their carbon fiber rifle barrels, with blank barrels in six calibers and pre-chambered barrels for both Savage and Ruger Precision rifles. They will also build pure custom one-off barrels to match the wants and needs of any shooter or rifle builder.

The bores of Helix 6 barrels are 416R stainless steel, button rifled, and hand lapped. Surrounding this is carbon fiber applied using a proprietary process which helps dampen barrel harmonics while reducing weight and increasing heat dissipation. I like the “hand lapped” feature which should significantly reduce fouling; thus, help with barrel break-in. Here’s what they say in a recent press release:

At Helix 6 Precision, we build the world’s finest carbon fiber rifle barrels using only premium materials. Creating a match grade barrel involves much more than just wrapping carbon fiber around a steel core. Our proprietary carbon fiber layup design dampens barrel harmonics for outstanding accuracy. We’re always pushing the limits of innovation, quality, and design. As a result, Helix 6 Precision barrels are lighter, stronger, and faster cooling than anything else available on the market. Our barrels are proudly 100% made in the USA.

In the heart of every Helix 6 Precision barrel is a match-grade 416R stainless steel core-an advanced, corrosion resistant steel alloy-ideal for making precision rifle barrels. Each barrel is hand lapped, improving accuracy while minimizing fouling. We build barrels with extremely tight tolerances, and each one must pass a rigorous inspection before leaving our facilities.

Choose from one of the many popular long-range calibers from .224 to .338. Self-installation is easy using a pre-fit Savage or Ruger Precision Rifle barrel while carbon fiber barrel blanks are ready to chamber and fit by your gunsmith professional for any rifle system. If you need a one-off custom barrel in any caliber, twist, or contour, Helix 6 Precision makes them, too. If you can dream it, Helix 6 can build it.
