I have no idea what the barrel life will be but I doubt I will ever shoot enough to wear a barrel out. I am a believer in floating the barrel. Have you looked at the rra barrels? I like their 20 ss predator barrels. If your looking for better accuracy out of a 16" barrel check out melonited barrels, they are harder to clean than chromed barrels but tend to hold tighter tolerances. Looks like you have a good start on your ar.
I wasn't trying to knock their barrels . Price sometimes has nothing to do with a good barrel . A good friend bought a Model one sales barrel and it shoots right up there with anything I have.
On the AR15 link your right about some of the posters. Its just like this place sometimes you have to know who listen to for serious advice.
