Not sure about that dude's "golf" swing...I buried my putter in the green like that once.

Pretty tough barrel though. Be curious to see someone whack away with some of the competitors barrels.

Pretty impressive, although I'd like to see a steel barrel of equal weight/length do the same test. I love carbon fiber in most everything, and one day I'll build a rifle with a CF barrel.

I like the idea of a carbon fiber wrapped barrel but "tough"?, maybe but can't see where one would be as "tough" as steel - on varmint class rounds the bore doesn't last any longer than a CM varmint contour barrel, 2 expensive CA 22-250's taught me that lesson - maybe a 270 or 30.06 would be better, don't know about that
