Vancouver, WA –-(Ammoland.com)- Jon Beagle has a long-standing passion for building precision rifles. This inspired him to start Helix 6 Precision-a company driven to produce the world’s best carbon fiber barrels. To attain this lofty goal, Jon sought the help of an engineer on the cutting-edge of carbon fiber design and fabrication. His quest led him to Brad Loomis who has built carbon fiber rifle barrels since 1991. Brad is one of the brightest minds in the composite industry, with over 30 years of experience. From this partnership Helix 6 Precision barrels were born.
Carbon fiber is formed using thin strands of carbon bonded together with a plastic polymer resin. The resulting material is strong, lightweight, and extremely durable. However, creating a precision rifle barrel involved much more than just wrapping carbon fiber around a steel core and trying to sell it! Helix 6 Precision uses a proprietary process to reach the full potential of the carbon fiber material. All barrels are built to extremely tight tolerances and must pass a rigorous inspection before they are sold. Jon Beagle builds his precision rifles using only premium components, and those standards are evident in all Helix 6 Precision barrels.
Helix 6 Precision’s success is delivered by their quest to create the best carbon fiber barrel on the planet. They continue to push the limits of innovation to improve the process and products. Their unique carbon fiber layup design dampens barrel harmonics for better accuracy. Barrels use premium materials and methods-each one is cut from a 416R stainless steel core, and carbon fiber wrapped using the Helix 6 Precision’s advanced process-creating match-grade accuracy barrels that are 30% lighter than a steel barrel of the same contour with high heat dispersion. The bores are button rifled and hand lapped for precision accuracy. The result is a custom barrel that is lighter, stronger, and faster cooling than anything else available on the market.
Helix 6 Precision barrels are available as pre-fit barrels for both Savage and the Ruger Precision Rifle in many popular long-range cartridges. Barrel blanks are sold in five calibers from .224 to .338, and they offer the option to thread and chamber a barrel for any precision rifle. Helix 6 Precision also builds one-off barrels to fit individual needs.
All Helix 6 Precision barrels are proudly 100% made in the USA.
