Barrels are cheap in the grand scale of things:
Most will not wear out a barrel in a lifetime of shooting & for those who do, barrels are cheap enough.
Shoot a little & save the barrel or shoot the shyt out of it & replace it? Our favorite barrel vendor will make more!

I just had a visit from Fed ex and have in my hand my first 6.8 it's an ARP 18 " MID WEIGHT ,the barrel looks great and I was surprised at the linear comp ,it is a lot more stream line than it looks in the pictures . I will eventually get time to work up loads but for now I'll order Hornady and Federal factory .

If you think you are going to die, chances are that you will die.
The 6.8 is not the only caliber that I prefer.
There are a few others that have a different jobs that they do very well.
Some folks just need to have whatever the latest & greatest is, in their opinion of course. I am noticing that if you have something new, that it is better. FTS.
I like what I have.
I don't shoot Russian ammo and I never will.
