Just found a 16” 1-11 SPC II chambered barrel with carbine length gas system and 5 boxes of Hornady 100gr GMX for $275. Don’t really need the ammo but I’d like the barrel if it’s all it’s hyped up to be.

What are everyone’s thoughts on that BHW barrel?

I like my 5.56 BHW barrel it shoots very well. The only issue I see with that one you have posted is carbine length gas. Not my first choice for a 16" barrel.

A target sent to me by a shooter from a BHW 6.8. This was shot at 100 yards. Five shot groups. Mine shoots this well.

I have 12.5” bull barrel and love it. I also have a 16” 308 and it’s shoots great. Finally have a 20” for my mossberg mvp.

I've got two 18" BHW barrels in 6.8spcII. They're both moa guns.

Edited to add: at some point I want to pick up an ARP barrel for comparison. Based on board discussions people seem to be able to work up hotter loads without pressure signs for their ARP barrels than I can for my BHW barrels.

Guess I’ll buy it and give it a run with an adjustable gas block since it carbine-length gas system…
