Barrett Firearms recently announced is long-awaited follow-up to the MRAD platform. The new Barrett MRADELR expands on the martial design in a package built to go seriously long. Already tested at King of the 2 Miles and more, the MRADELR checks all the boxes regarding components and features in a long-range shooting package. Chambered in 416 Barrett, with other larger calibers planned, the MRADELR is legit.
Barrett MRADELR Details
We recently put rounds downrange at the Athlon Outdoors Rendezvous, with multiple contributors and staff earning first-shot hits out to a mile. And just like everything else we’ve ever tested from Barrett–this new MRADELR is a long-range shooting machine.
The MRADELR comprises a military tested, out-of-the-box, extreme long-range rifle system. It utilizes interchangeable barrels to accommodate multiple calibers within one rifle. The real upgrade here, however, is the attention to long-range precision. Barrett went after a rifle equal to custom-built models currently out there in the competition world. So here comes the MRADELR, chambered in 416 Barret, and built to go long.
“This rifle is a testament to our unwavering commitment to pushing the boundaries of what is possible in long-range shooting,” said Bryan James, President of Barrett Firearms. “We look forward to sharing this innovation with the world at the 2024 SHOT Show and bringing the same capability to the hands of marksmen who demand nothing but the best.”
Here at Ballistic, we didn’t have to wait. Our early range sessions with the MRADELR earned this rifle the “Ballistic’s Best Editors’ Select” award for Best ELR Rifle. And with good reason, as this bad boy might as well have been firing lasers during our range session. The rifle also earned a 2nd place finish at the recent King of 2 Miles competition, going against the best custom-built rifles in the world.
