As title says. Any links to anywhere? Been looking for several days. I prefer 16” stainless with 1:10 twist but Im not opposed to any other option if the price is right

Also want recommendations for a good barrel. I dont want to spend a lot but Im building a very nice rifle with quality parts. I dont wanna be disappointed with the barrel.

Agree 100% on ARP barrels. May I ask why you want a 1:10 twist?

Blackstone Arms (posted above) builds a fine upper as well.

I’ve read that is the optimal twist rate in that round. Should I be looking for something different?

No further research is necessary, sir. AR Performance has optimized the chamber and twist rate for the 6.8. An ARP barrel installed by a reputable builder like Blackstone, will be the premium of 6.8 rifles. PM me if you want more specific info. I have a few 6.8 rigs to compare.

Is there any reason that I cannot build my own with one of their barrels? I already hve an Aero stripped upper and a 6.8 bcg. Im wanting something different than the standard 5.56 stuff that I have been building

No sir. I've built 6 or 7 rifles off of ARP barrels and bolts. If you have the ability and the parts, your rifle will be as good as anyone's.

I guess I'm the only one that doesn't endorse ARP's barrels. I've got 3 of his barrel's,and they shoot OK at best. I have a 18" SPR 223,a 16" SIX5,and a 16" 6.8 barrel,and have never been impressed with their accuracy with any bullet/powder combinations.

I just built a new 6.8,and used a White Oak barrel for it. I haven't had time to shoot it yet,but every barrel that I've ever bought from White Oak has shot well under MOA.

Harrison's 6.8 Super bolt is a good piece,but I'll never buy another barrel from him.

Yankee Hill makes a 1:10 barrel. I've never used their barrels so can't say either way. I've always used Wilson Combat (1:11)with LWRC bolt and never had any issues with accuracy or reliability.
