Would there be much demand for the 6mm Creedmoor in an Ar-10 (LR-308) platform? We are expanding our AR-10 line of barrels. Any reason why the round wouldn't work as well?

Specs would be:

DPMS Pattern
22" (Maybe)
1:8"
Rifle Length Gas
Medium HBAR contour

Thanks!

Would be pretty cool, for sure. I would want the twist to stabilize 105's and up.

If you could get reliable feeding with the 105 BergerHybrids then it should be a seller.
My 6.5 CM does great with 123gr but I have had issues with feeding the longer 140 gr.
I have read that is not uncommon so that may need exploring

8 Twist should stabilize the 105gr Hybrid which is the best 6mm out there.

7mm I might be interested still but really need to get my 6mm Creedmoor bolt gun done first. Are these going to be just a limited run or a stocking item?

I think I'll pass so I can burn the first barrel myself.

I think 6 Creedmoor would be a good move, and 8 twist is a good call.

Yup. And the 105 hybrid, dee mentioned, will help gain some velocity back due to the gas gun tax.

I know 2 guys who run a 6mm Creemoor in an AR, and both say the accuracy is decent, and they were not too excited about them in an AR.

We'll see. Our 7mm-08 and 6.5 Creedmoor run sold out already and we've seen a good demand for the product. We may order just one and if it sells quick, slowly build up enough inventory to have a regular stock.

So overall they thought it was mediocre?

Correct. They were much more finicky than the bolt guns.

If ammo was available on the shelf then I would have went 6CM instead of 6.5CM
