Nothing special honestly. Just a little more powder then the rest.

It's a 6.8 SPC necked down to .224" caliber. The 6.8 SPC round is one of the most powerful rounds in the AR 15 platform. Neck it down to .224", seat a heavy bullet on it, install a 7" twist barrel, and you have a fast little round. It's kind of like a mini 22-250 round.

90 grain has 166" less drop than a 77 grain .223 and about 60" less wind drift at 1000 yards....

It will be as popular as the Creedmoor.

No, because much of the Creedmoors fame is bolt actions. There’s no reason to use this in a bolt action when you have the .22-250 right there, or for that matter, the 22 Creedmoor. Also, ammo will not be cheap for a long time, which is the draw to an AR in 5.56/.223.

I don't know how you compare it to the 22-250. This is built for 90 grain bullets and the 22-250 is built for 50 grain bullets unless you go custom.

Federal American Eagle 75 grain is .57/round, not too bad. I may have to build one of these uppers next.....

Go custom with a 1:7 twist barrel in the 22-250 or 22 Creedmoor and see what those heavy pills will do. Of course that would be reloaders only round or ammo from custom loaders like Chad. In my 1:8 twist 22-243 I did not see stabilization with Berger target 90gr bullets until I hit 3250 fps and it really needs more velocity for true stabilization in that 27 inch barrel

I could get there I think and might try it again some day

But this is on an AR-15 platform....any idea what barrel length will be needed for best performance?

I would not go short barrel with that round 20 min but most likely would get a 24, if you wand to chop it off alter Morgan would take care of that for you.
