Well, just preordered my Nemesis 16" in AC threads, and I NEVER preorder things.

I believe 10, 16, and 20 will all be available eventually. One of the testers had an 8", might be some of those floating around too?

Where did you preorder yours? This is the only place I've seen it so far: https://www.tieronearmament.com/prod...nemesis-barrel

I'm hoping to do a fairly extensive comparison test between all the rifled FSR barrel options on my SSR.

Iím waiting on the 8Ē for sure just saw this, just to be clear these are strictly FS or are they compatible with round ball also?

That's the one. Carmatech has them listed as a Canadian distributor, and they were the first (and only so far?) ones to list a price and pre-order. I am not a savvy consumer, lol.

FB chatter says they "work" with roundball (ie, spin and don't explode) but they're specifically for FSR. There's no consensus they have any positive effect to roundball.

I donít need improvement on roundball per day just as long as it doesnít totally ruin roundball then that would be cool saves me from switching barrels.

As previously stated in this thread, I too find the claims made about this barrel by Carmatech to be highly suspect.

Exhibit A:
https://youtu.be/frlGqDEJTTU

That said, the spline rifling concept is an interesting one, and it’s good to see a third option for rifled fsr barrels being released, regardless. I’m eager to see actual test results comparing actual groupings between these barrels.

I never put much steak in promotional videos like these, I always wait on customer testing videos to determine if I would purchase one.

I took the marketing graphics with a grain of salt, with the whole HH-MCSUS drama it looks like Carmatech might have pushed to announce the barrel quickly, hence the hasty re-use of graphics. David claims they're fairly representational of average spreads per those barrels, but it's silly he didn't use unique captures of actual data...

The only independent test that's been documented so far -

50 meters
280 FPS
9" Lapco
8" HH Oneshot
8" Nemesis
6 shots each
