  Caliber choice opinion- If hunting deer and hogs the 6.8 makes more sense, it is a no fuss no muss work horse. There are more choices of hunting bullets and ammo and the 6.8 factory ammo is apx 100fps faster than the Grendel when the same length barrels and bullet weights are used.  If you reload the 6.8 can be loaded 200fps faster than the Grendel and do it without breaking bolts like the Grendel does.  A larger dia bullet moving 100fps faster = better terminal performance. SD does not mean anything, as soon as the bullet strikes something that SD figure is no longer valid.  The bullet construction and expansion is the most important thing for hunting. Having more hunting bullet choices and better terminal performance puts the 6.8 out front for hunting. If you reload and like wildcats the 30 Herrett is a HAMMER.   You can increase the accuracy and performance by using long load mags from Cavity back bullets. Loading longer than 2.295" will allow using more powder resulting in more velocity and it place the bullet closer to the lands resulting in better accuracy.

All of our 6.8 barrels have a  high performance (SPCII type)chamber.

ALL 6.8 ammo is the same size. All 6.8 chambers are the same size. All factory ammo will fit in a 6.8SPC, SPCII or ARP chamber. The only difference in the chambers is the length of the freebore. The length of the freebore can determine how accurate the barrels are. The 1:11.25 twist rate will accurately shoot any bullet from 80-120gr and most 130s. Solid copper bullets like the Barnes and Cavity Back work better in the 3R 1:10 barrels which will accurately shoot any thing from 80-150gr.

NOT 1 company loads factory 6.8 SPCII ammo. Since none of the companies will load factory ammo to the higher velocity I have done what I could to increase the velocity with the barrel and chamber design. The 5R and 3R 6.8 barrels sold here normally produce 60-100fps more than the common 11 twist 4 groove barrels when the same factory ammo is used in both types of barrels.

The original 6.8 SPC chamber is comparable to the 223 chamber. The ARP chamber is comparable to the 223 Wylde chamber. The 6.8 SPCII chamber is comparable to the 5.56 Nato chamber.

BOLTS ARE NOT INCLUDED with a barrel. They are an option either below the barrel description or on the 'bolt/carrier"page. 

Barrels are ported to work with standard carbine springs and buffers when used with Normal ammo producing 54000psi. Using weak ammo, heavier buffers or stronger spring may cause the rifle to short stroke or not strip ammo from the mag.

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.

If you use a reaction rod  to torque the barrel nut and shear the locating pin off it IS NOT covered under warranty. Because of the time involved to drill the old pin out the cost to repair will be $30 plus shipping.
