    Lets you cut some weight off of heavier (stiffer) barrel profiles. Also reported to help cool barrels faster...? Marketing...?

    Well fluted barrels are obviously lighter than standard ones.

    Haven't noticed a difference. It seems to reason that by fluting the barrel it makes the barrel lighter, so does it physically allow the barrel to cool quicker? It seems logical.

    Many years ago in a marketing class the Professor said to sell a product you have to make it different from everything else. Looks to me like that is what's up here.

    Depends on your shooting style. I was always taught to shoot from a cold barrel, meaning one shot only. Very rarely other than target practice would I shoot from a hot barrel, but I have found that the fluting has made the cool down time much quicker between cold shots.

    As you know they say it helps dissipate heat, I don't know about that, but if I got fluting I think the straight flutes look the coolest.

    We all probably know the reasons for fluting a rifle barrel but other than looking cool has anyone REALLY ever noticed a difference between horizontal fluted, spiral fluted, and non-fluted?
