I'm finishing up a .308 build. I was looking at a few different options, and thier lead times are like 6 months right now for a few places, such as x-caliber. I would wait, but I want to use this for whitetail this year. Also, im really trying to keep the price under or around $500. LW has some in stock right now. If I went with the douglass it would be from compass lake. Is there an accuracy difference in either of these barrels? Or does anyone have any other options for sub. Or around $500 barrels without a 6th month waiting period? Thanks.

No experience with Douglas; but I ran a LW on my AR10 .308. Had a StraightJacket barrel system installed, but that barrel was lights out both before, and even more so after, the conversion.

Of your two suggestions, I can't say anything bad about my LW use. Fit and finish, rifling, end result on target; all very pleasing results

I have a Douglas barrel from compass lake. But in .223. After fucking with it for 200 rounds I changed it out with a keystone accuracy Bartlein and I’ll never spend the money on a cheap barrel again. That barrel is currently laying around the shop and gets used as a pry bar. But I did give compass lake another try with krieger spr barrel to go on my mk12. Just waiting on the can to see how that one shoots.

Gas gun, I would go Douglas and have compass lake do the work.

Did you ever reach back out to CLE about it?
