    Just wondering if there's anything wrong with chrome moly AR barrels. I know they cost less than stainless or chrome lined barrels. Does chrome moly wear out faster? Is it less accurate for some reason? Just wondering.

    chrome moly is more accurate than chrome lined slightly less than stainless. ON AVERAGE

    Yes they wear faster but it's more a matter of wearing your ar bbl out after 10,000rds vs 17,000

    In other words not an issue for 99.992% of us especially considering that's likely over $4000 worth of ammo just to wear out a moly barrel
