PROOF Research 308 AR Carbon Fiber Barrels

At PROOF Research we’re proving AR 308 carbon fiber wrapped rifle barrels aren’t just a lightweight alternative to traditional steel rifle barrels, but that they provide superior performance, including extreme accuracy, unprecedented durability and increased barrel life. By combining our unique manufacturing process with advanced technology composite materials and thermo-mechanical design principles, we’ve accomplished what others have failed to do in the past—match-grade carbon fiber rifle barrels that weigh a fraction of traditional steel rifle barrels while compromising nothing. They’re not just lighter—they’re better.

  • These carbon fiber-wrapped barrels provide a high-end alternative to traditional barrels while still maintaining extreme accuracy, performance and durability.
  • Match-grade accuracy
  • Improved heat dissipation for cooler and longer lasting barrels
  • No point-of-impact shift during high-volume fire
  • Reduced harmonic barrel vibration
  • More about The Science behind there process here:

Proof Research builds PR (308 AR, AR 308 barrels) with standard DPMS (TM) compatible barrel extensions and gas system lengths. Please check with the manufacturer of your rifle platform to see if these configurations are compatible.

Proof Research Recommends the JP Rifles High Pressure Bolt JPEB-308HP

JP Rifles JPEB-308HP

JP High Pressure EnhancedBolt™ Bolt Assembly
Caliber: .308 Win. caliber
Finish: Chromium Nitride

This bolt assembly is compatible with the JP LRP-07 and the DPMS LR-308 platforms (or clones thereof) only and cannot be used to replace bolts in the Armalite AR-10 platform (or clones thereof). This bolt uses a specialized firing pin that is not compatible with other bolts nor can it use standard .308 firing pins.

WARNING: The JP .308HP bolt does not allow for the use of excessive pressure, overloaded ammunition that exceeds SAAMI specifications. When evaluating new ammunition, always start on the low- to mid-range of any published load data and work up. A good indicator of working pressure is the primer retention on the subsequent loading of a case. A noticeable loss of primer pocket tension indicates that your ammunition has excessive pressure and has overworked the case.

CBI 308 AR Barrels

Criterion Barrels Inc (CBI Inc) long time friend of 308AR.com and our sibling sites (AR15 Tactical, Modular Rifle and Combat Rifle). CBI is always hard at work manufacturing some of the best 308 AR rifle barrels in business. CBI 308 AR barrels are proof that you don’t have to spend a fortune on a 308 barrel to get sub moa accuracy. As mentioned previously CBI 308 AR Barrels are the heart of Fulton Armory Titan 308 and American Defense Manufacturing (ADM) UIC semi automatic rifles.

Today we are pleased to see Brownells carrying and expanded line of Criterion 308 AR Barrels. This is actually a pretty big deal. CBI is careful on how they market their 308 AR barrels. There is no competition between Fulton Armory, American Defense Manufacturing and the Criterion Barrel Inc website. Visiting the three websites will result in different 308 barrel offerings

Criterion Hybrid contour match grade .308 AR barrels offer an ideal configuration for those seeking extreme accuracy without the added weight of a heavy barrel contour. These .308 AR barrels feature a M118LR chamber. The longer throat of the M118LR enables Criterion .308 AR barrels to improve upon the performance of loads utilizing heavier bullets, serving to reduce wind drift when fired at longer ranges.

Note: highlighted links all point to the Criterion Barrels Section of the Brownells website. Too hard to keep ever changing links updated.

CRITERION BARRELS INC – 308 AR HYBRID BARRELS, 6.5 CREEDMOOR

Designed to be compatible with DPMS, Midwest Industries, Remington, and Fulton Armory pattern rifles, these 6.5 Creedmoor barrels can be directly swapped with factory .308 barrels.

308 AR Bolt Compatibility

Note: Many .308 AR bolt manufacturers advertise their bolt as compatible with DPMS pattern .308 AR rifles, lug and bolt face tolerances often vary widely between different manufacturers. This is in opposition to the AR-15, where there is a uniform industry standard. Criterion barrels are gauged at the factory with Fulton Armory .308 AR bolts. We have also had success in demo rifle testing with bolts from DPMS and JP Enterprises. If you have any questions regarding bolt compatibility, please email us at contact@criterionbarrels.com.

Drake TiTAN Titanium Barrel System

Drake TiTAN Titanium Barrel System – Our friend Chris Drake at Drake Associates just passed on this news release for your viewing pleasure. If your unfamiliar with Drake Associates and their line of rifles and chassis you just might recognize them as the folks behind the Remington XM-2010 and Remington MSR.

Drake Titanium Stalker

The Drake Titanium Stalker also features the lightweight, Drake TiTAN Titanium Barrel System. This precision rifle was designed as an alternative to the military’s M24E program, with a similar mission profile that features high performance options at an affordable price.

The Drake TiTAN Titanium Barrel System by Drake Associates is a HIGH PERFORMANCE, LIGHT WEIGHT, LONG RANGE PRECISION BARREL SYSTEM that is manufactured under a US patent-pending process that increases the strength and reduces barrel weight by as much as 45%. An important application for the TiTAN™ Barrel System is a upgrade and retrofit for US Military and US Law Enforcement sniper weapon systems, Civilian Tactical Shooters and Long Range Hunters precision rifles.

If you’re looking for a high performance barrel system, the TiTAN™ will not disappoint. With the weight of a sporter barrel in a titanium heavy profile contour, this barrel system is no match for carbon fiber wrapped barrels.

Drake Associates currently offers the Titanium Barrel System with the Hunter Stalker and Drake Stalker Rifle Systems. Also available to order for Remington and Savage Bolt Action rifle systems as well as AR15/AR10 and 308AR rifle systems.
