Nice heavy 6.5 Creedmoor barrel.

This is one heavy barrel, and it needs a 0.936" gas block. The machining quality looks excellent, the headspace checks out with Manson Precision Go and No Go gauges when used with an Aero Precision nitrided 308 bolt carrier group. I have not test fired it yet, am waiting for factory ammo on order. Hornady and Winchester factory loads chamber properly; however, neck-sized reloads prepared for a Ruger Precision bolt action in 6.5 CM will not chamber in this BA barrel. So it has a tighter chamber than the RPR, which is probably a good thing for accuracy, but full-length resizing of brass will be required, as is typical for semi-auto ARs. I expect to see well under 1 MOA with this barrel.

Factory ammo, sub MOA. This is one accurate barrel. I had my first sub-MOA 10-shot group with this barrel within the first 15 rounds, and that includes sighting it in.
Best bang for the buck
This barrel is awesome. One ragged hole at 100 yards. I shoot 5 shot groups, but am going to see what it will do for 10 shot groups, and I'm going to stretch its legs.
