Heading into the match at No. 2 Oval after strong wins on the road at Cobar and Narromine, Dubbo continued its strong form with an eight-wicket win over the visiting Nyngan.
Barber came into the attack late on and bagged 4/20 as Nyngan was knocked over for just 122 and then Chris Newbold and Darcy Chewings led the way in what turned out to be a routine chase.
Nyngan, playing its first match of the Brewery Shield season, was on the back foot almost immediately as Ben O'Donnell (2/13) and Lawson Shepherd (1/22) reduced to visitors to 3/24.
Toby Miles tried to lead a fightback and made 22 but once he departed and Barber entered the attack the end came soon for Nyngan.
CYMS' Barber, who hasn't been needed all too often with the ball for the Cougars in the RSL-Whitney Cup, ripped through Brown Snakes' lower order.
Barber had two batsmen bowled and one trapped in front as Nyngan was dismissed inside 30 overs.
Dubbo lost the promoted Kyle Larance (10) early on but the runs soon started to flow.
Chris Newbold, following on from his team-high 63 in last round's win over Narromine, led the way again and top-scored with 42 in the chase.
Rugby youngster Darcy Chewings also impressed, supporting Newbold with aplomb and finishing 41 not out.
Nate Ambler (23 not out) also got some valuable time in the middle during the win and helped Dubbo reach the target with eight wickets to spare.
Dubbo reached the target in the 23rd over while Tyler Martin (1/24) and Cameron Bourke (1/43) took the only wickets for Nyngan.
Dubbo travels to Wellington for its final round fixture while Nyngan has games against both Cobar and Narromine to come.
