Um... Mr. Ccoker... I donít know how to tell you this, but... um... thatís not a 6.5 Creedmoor... Iím sure it was just an oversight on your part...but...if you donít mind... you might want to fix it... The THF hive mind doesnít like rifles that arenít a 6.5.

I've been playing with some lighter weight bullets, 125 and 150 grain, in the SBR and 16" rifles. I'm really liking these. The problem with short barrels is having a lot of unburned, slow burning powder that's normally used in 308 ammo with heavier bullets. You get about 8%-15% unburned powder in an 11" barrel out of an AR platform. Even a 16" will help with that, and put more of the powder to work with the lighter bullets with a faster burning powder. It's kind of cool!

The 168 ablr looks tempting but it is a bit heavy. Need to run some numbers with 168 vs 150 bullets

man, I don't what I was thinking.. I am SO, so, so sorry..
I will get it rebarreled, scratch that, run it over in my truck.. it's only the right thing to do

Please, I hope you all can reach deep, and find a way (and I know it will be hard) to forgive me.

I plead with you..
