If you’ve been into guns for some time, you know that a futuristic appearance doesn’t necessarily equal superior performance. The real performance drivers are materials and technologies. Proof rifles may look unimpressive and even dull to some shooters, but they pack quite a few innovative features that make them some of the best long-range rifles on the market today.
Proof Research Barrels
Using advanced science, aerospace-grade materials, and new technologies, Proof makes probably the finest barrels for bolt-action and semi-auto rifles. Particularly, it’s proud of its composite manufacturing. The thing is that barrels made from carbon fiber a considerably lighter than their steel counterparts without sacrificing strength. But the benefits of using this material in barrels extend beyond weight and strength.
Proof barrels use a standard match-grade 416R stainless steel barrel blank, which is then shaved off to obtain a significantly reduced contour. This reduced profile is wrapped with high-strength, aerospace-grade carbon fiber impregnated with matrix resin. Thanks to this technology, the barrel receives an improved ability to diffuse and transport heat along the barrel resulting in faster cooling.
Proof Research Rifles
Proof declares that reducing weight doesn’t compromise durability and accuracy. In fact, the company guarantees sub-MOA accuracy tested using the Oehler 85 Professional Ballistics Lab System.
If you’re looking for a lightweight hunting rifle for your big game adventures, consider the Proof Research Elevation. It’s the best Proof Research rifle in 6.5 Creedmoor, 6.5 PRC, 300 Win Mag, 308 Win, or 7mm with a super-smooth Zermatt Origin action, Trigger Tech trigger, and Proof composite stock due to which the rifle weight mere 5-6 lbs depending on the cartridge.
At Gritr Sports, you also find the Proof Elevation MTR mag-fed bolt-action tactical rifles and other models. We also carry Proof composite and steel barrels in all popular calibers.
