My original goal was to make an AR-10 that could be viable in F-class shooting. The more I dove into it I would have been paying out the ass for a 24” 308 barrel and I doubted I’d even compete.
Factor in the California bullshit laws I was thinking of using a Kali Key that would make the rifle a bolt action… so the thought of using 6.5 creedmoor came to mind. 24” barrels are easily available and the ballistics are better at distance
yeah I know I’d still pay out the ass for a match grade+ barrel but I might as well enjoy the performance vs shooting (unavailable) cheap 308 and being underwhelmed
