AR PERFORMANCE

    All Wildcat cartridges are now on this page.

    General info first- Open 9-5 EST if you need to call. "tech@ar15performance.com" is the best email.  A limited amount of product is added to the site daily to keep wait times down. Still with the amount of orders we receive in a single night it keeps us busy and usually run 5-7 business days to ship depending on the parts ordered.  FEDEX will send an automated email with tracking info when the label is printed.

    SHIPPING
    Shipping Restrictions

    • ARP will not ship ANY items to the District of Columbia (Washington D.C.).
       
    • will not ship ANY items to the state of California
       
    • will not ship ANY AR Parts to Chicago, Illinois, Cook County, Illinois, or Deerfield, Illinois.


    Due to numerous shipping, fraud and theft problems over the last 9 years. We have a very strict ordering and shipping policy. We can ship by FEDEX or USPS to residence, business or post offices but the shipping address must match the billing address associated with the credit card used to place the order. We will no longer ship to apartments complexes. We are not taking any new customers in California.    You 68forums guys know what to do.
    All parts will require a signature upon delivery, Fed Ex or USPS for PO boxes

    Caliber choice opinion- If your primary use will be long range targets the  TAC 6, 224 and
    6mm Predator will perform best.   The 6mms in my opinion are also the most versatile as light as 55gr for varmints to 80-90gr for hunting and 95-108gr VLDs for long range paper punching. 
      If you are looking for a deer or hog round the 270MSR, TAC 30(30 Herrett), 6.8 will be better choices for hunting.  The 270MSR is near a full power cartridge, mule deer or elk. The Tac 30 and 6.8 are perfect for whitetails and hogs out to 350yds.


    BOLTS ARE NOT INCLUDED with a barrel. They are an option either below the barrel description or on the 'bolt/carrier"page. No other parts are included with a barrel unless added as an option.
    Warning- We do not sell Nitride/Melonite treated bolts and will warn all against using Nitride treated bolts. The Nitride treatment anneals carburized bolts. At some point in time the lugs will compress and headspce will increase to an unsafe level.

    Headspace- When bolts and barrels are purchased together we will check the headspace.

    Barrels are ported to work with standard carbine springs and buffers when used with Normal ammo producing 54000psi. Using weak ammo or reloads, heavier buffers or stronger spring may cause the rifle to short stroke or not strip ammo from the mag. We can port the barrels larger if you plan to run different parts or lower pressure ammo. Add a note in the additional comment box during checkout.

    The gas block boss on the barrels are sized to work with .750 diameter gas blocks, that does NOT mean the boss itself is exactly .750.

    In the photo 223, 6.8, 270 MSR

    The 270MSR is a AR15 wildcat that was designed for the great selection of 130gr 270 hunting bullets. It will push 130gr bullets to 2700-2750fps out of a 20" barrel, apx 200fps faster than the 6.8 and 300 fps faster than the Grendel.   It is close to a full power hunting cartridge, like the 260 or 308 but fits in an AR15. The 270MSR will add range to the 6.8s ability. It will be effective on mule deer, antelope. elk, and other med sized game usually shot at longer ranges than white tails and hogs.  68forums will be the place to go for performance info from guys that have been shooting the 270AR(predecessor to the 270MSR)for the last 5-6 years.

    Norma Dasher brass should handle 60000psi and last longer than Lapua. Case capacity is around 42gr.
      Barrels ported to run with a standard CAR buffer and spring. Includes the new 750XD bolt(.742" nominal dia) and  matching extension.  You can use any standard AR15 receiver and carrier.

    Custom Hornady dies and Norma 6mm Dasher brass are an option below.

    Sorry but shipping will be slow on these, the bolt parts needed to finish the 750XD are 7 days out.

    Also no coupons on this, they stuck me pretty hard on the fluting.

    This batch of 20" 224 Valkyrie barrels are made specifically for hunters using the 80gr ELD and shorter bullets, the 90gr TMJ  works for hunting.  Customers have reported good accuracy with the new 85.5 Berger.  It will also give better performance with the lighter varmint/yote bullets than the 6.5 and 7 twist barrels. The 80 ELD will out perform (less drop and drift) the 88s, 90s and 95s due to the higher velocity(apx 2900-20" barrel), the higher BCs of the 88s, 90s and 95s will not catch up.


    224 Valkyrie - The new long range target/PRS(semi auto) king. If you are looking for the best long range target performance out of a factory AR15 round this is it. The 224V has much less drop and drift than the Grendel, also less recoil.

      The  chamber we produce matches the SAAMI spec drawing perfectly. The freebore is much shorter than most barrels on the market and will produce better accuracy with all long high BC bullets however this batch will be limited to bullets 80gr and under.

        Short nosed bullets (55-62)will have to be loaded shorter than mag length to keep them out of the lands. Adjust your loads to keep the bullets out of the lands.. 

     The 7.7 twist will allow shooting the 80s, and everything under down to 55s and do it accurately. I have shot 55gr Noslers into 1/2" at 100yds so don't belive the BS that a fast twist barrel will not shoot light bullets.

      The Melonite treatment will make these barrels last twice as long as stainless.

    Sorry marked down for clearance -NO Coupons

    Uses 7.62x39 bolt

    One of the best and flattest shooting low recoil cartridges available in the AR15 platform. The 224 Predator is a wildcat based on the PPC or Grendel brass, we recommend Norma Grendel brass. It is the same as a 224 LBC or 224 Grendel. It should push 80s, 88s and 90s apx 100fps faster than the 224 Valkyrie. The 80gr ELD at 3000fps will have less drop and drift than the 88s, 90s and 95s past 1000yds, give them a try. If you want to shoot long range with an AR this or the 6mm Predator will beat just about anything out there including the Valkyrie.

      The 224 Predator has a short freebore setup for the long VLDs. The freebore is only .080 so be sure to check where they touch the lands before loading ammo. Many of the 75 and 80gr bullets need to be set around 2.22" OAL. The 62gr Fusions hit at 2.085. 30gr CFE works very well with 75 and 80gr bullets.
    Many people think you should be able to load every bullet out to full mag length at 2.26" but you can't. If you loaded a 55gr Nosler to 2.26" it would fall out of the case. The 80 Berger and 75ELDs are long and if you load them to 2.26 the top of the boat tail/bottom of the full diameter is not down to the shoulder-neck junction in the case.
    Regardless of what you think when the 80 Berger is loaded to 2.22" OAL the bullet is not protruding into the powder capacity. Only the boattail is below the shoulder junction.
    Bottom line, check to see where the bullets hit the lands and back off .010"

    This flash hider is small diameter (.740) apx the same as a barrel diameter and very lightweight.  A very effective closed end flash hider that will not snag on branches etc.  Filmed from 2 ft in the dark side by side with the AAC Blackout and Smith Vortex, they reduced flash to a minimum glow where some devices and target crowned barrels produced a 10" ball of flame. None of the 4 flash hiders increased the noise to the shooter.
    This flash does not need to be clocked and does not need a crush washer. If you want to clock the device you will need a crush washer.

    For use with our 223 wylde barrels with 1/2-28 thread.
