USES 7.62x39 bolt this barrel only

Part of our Predator line of barrels(marked 6mm Predator), this cartridge is based on the PPC or Grendel brass, we recommend Norma Grendel brass. This is the same as the  "6mmAR" or "243LBC". Exact same chamber and freebore as the 243LBC. The 243LBC freebore was located at a good length, I left it .  Whatever it is called it is capable of pushing 95gr bullets with a BC of .456 to 2800fps out of a 20" barrel and 105s to apx 2775fps making it one of if not the flattest shooting long range cartridges to fit in an AR15. Exterior ballistics beat the Grendel. It may also be the most versatile cartridge we have ever produced. It is capable of shooting super light bullets at small varmints, 75gr bullets at yotes, 95-108gr long range target bullets and 80-90gr hunting bullets at deer and hogs.   Hornady custom dies are available as an option below.  Grendel bushing dies with a .268 bushing  and a 6mm expander ball may also be used to load.  Norma & Hornady brass tends to work better. Try 27.5-28gr  8208 with a a 95smk set to 2.29 OAL. Customer photo of group shown. These 22" 3R barrels are as fast as many of the old 6 groove style 24" barrels. 

. Regardless of what you read on the internet bolts with a .136 recess are NOT stronger than bolts with a .124" recess and the extractors are the same.   Headspace is set to minimum to help prevent case stretch improving case life further.  If you play with the chambering/carrier by hand you will likely hear and feel the lugs clicking when new. They will smooth out as used but the design is intended to make the barrel and bolt as strong as possible. This combination of parts and specs is how the Grendel should have been made from day 1.
