Hi, I have a aero precision m5 upper and lower. I’m looking for some advice on a barrel mainly looking for a 20-24”. It’s going to be a bench gun. Price range 300-400 that has good accuracy. All help is appreciated.

While I haven't shot either in 308 I can tell you I've had GREAT results with a Rainier Arms Ultra Match in 5.56 for a Mk12 Mod 1 build I did. I've had that gun reach out to 725m hitting small IPSC steel. Additionally, I just purchased a Ballistic Advantage Premium 6.5CM 22" barrel so I have faith that it will perform based on what I've read across the interwebs. Good luck in your build. The biggest thing is to get it built and shoot it.

+2 on Rainer arms ultra match barrels. Even if you don’t go with a Rainer barrel they have Faxon, Noveske, Proof, Battle Arms, BSF, V Seven, Christensen, to choose form as well.

An off the shelf barrel that is a tack driver in your price range would be a Wilson 416R SS Fluted HBAR .308 1:10 barrel. Unfortunetly its only in 18" but only $265 and I reviewed this barrel last year from JSE. Absolute tack driver with 168 ELD-M and 175smk.

If you want a custom barrel in your price range give John at Keystone Accuracy a call or shoot him an email. He can do a custom button barrel to whatever contour, length, chambering you want in your price range which also shoot lights out. I have on of his button blanks on a bolt gun that is hammering. Will be probably $100 more than the Wilson but still in your price range.

Wilson arms is different from Wilson Combat. Wilson Arms is who Padom was talking about. I have one of their 18” as well. Never tested it too much. But it was a nice shooter.
