Hello, I am not new to Black Hole Weaponry but I didn't realize that they had a forum. I ordered a 5.56 1x8 16" barrel about a year ago and love it. I haven't had an opportunity to hunt with it but at the range I have verified extreme accuracy out to just under 400 yards. I am confident it can go further. Your barrels are awesome and I am about to order two more. Thank you for your incredible ownership in your products.
