May be avail mid October

A light-mid weight barrel but not a whippy pencil barrel, perfect weight for a fast swinging rifle that will hold it's accuracy. These barrels will be much more accurate than Daniel Defense, Giessele, LMT, BCM and the other professional grade "combat" type rifles while the Melonite treatment will make them last, according to tests chromelined barrels will wear and accuracy will fail before Melonite treated barrels.   None of the military ammo (55,62fmj)is accurate in any barrel but the 77gr Razor core and Black Hills MK262 shoots pretty well. 62gr Gold dots and other handloads can shoot 1/2" MOA.  24.7gr H335 with 62gr Gold dots 2.27" is a known good load.

    DO NOT USE  bullets that are larger than .277" in these 6.8 barrels, 99.9% of all .270/6.8 bullets made are .277" diameter.  The chambers were designed for .277" bullets and all 6.8 barrels have a .277" bore so bullets larger than .277" will cause excess pressure and increased copper fouling.  It seems some Cavity Back bullets are .278" and on top of that they are solid copper so check the diameter of the bullets before using them.
