Odin ULTRAlite 16 223 Wylde Barrel


Recommended Posts

Last week I called and spoke to Aaron over at Odin works about upgrading the steel on my 2 match rifles. After some discussion we settled on the 3 gun 18" for my primary, and a 16" ULTRAlite for my back up/Lite Weight rifle. The 18" was great and performed just as expected, but this review is specifically on the 16" ULTRAlite.

After bolting this on my back up rifle the total complete rifle minus optics was 5lb 3 oz, with the ULTRAlite barrel only being 1lb 6 oz of that. The contour of this barrel left me skeptical of what I could expect on accuracy, but wow, the rifle felt SO light and fast.

The next day I took it out to the range with 3 types of ammo to do a quick sight in and test. I had some cheap 55 FMJs, some good Hornady 55 FMJs, and some open tip match 75 Hornady. I started at 25 to get on paper with the cheap 55s. right off the bat it put 3 in the same hole to the left. I did some quick adjustments and put another 3 shot group once again in the same hole. I was blown away, granted it was only at 25. I then went out to 100 yards on paper. All 3 ammo types produced 5 shot groups right at the 1" mark. This was ground breaking seeing how the cheap 55s would only get 2" out of my old barrel!!

Wanting to see how it would do at medium distance I shot it out to 300 on an 8" gong. Once again, All 3 ammo types made it boring for quick follow up shots and "slap after slap" on the steel.

All I can say to wrap it up is that if your looking for ​a super light barrel for the short to medium range matches, look no further. This ULTRAlite is worth every penny !!!!
