Good reason to start reloading

For sure. I'm going to pick up a Forster Co-Ax press for this one. My Dillon 550 is great for most things I'd ever want to use it for, but the Forster gives you total control over every aspect of the load.

I was eyeballing the various 6mm rounds for awhile but eventually decided to go AR-10 and .308.

Re: 6.8 question, remember that the 6.8 was designed for the 300 yard world, while the 6.5 was designed to be in a way the 'ultimate' all around round that would fit into the AR-15 magwell. Load up 144s for nice long range shots, some 90s for varminting, and some 123SMKs for CQB.

I mean, 6.8 is nice and all, and has some big names and fancy advertising, but its designed for REALLY close in work, and only has one grain choice for weight. 6.5 might not be *quite* as good if you're really close in, but its far more adaptable.

very kool
going with an upper from AA or a custom build?

I'm going to take a shot at doing it myself. We'll see how well it shoots. :hs:

i ordered the 24" barrel and bolt from AA this morning. I'm thinking about a JP handguard and maybe a billet upper. So far that's all I've thought up. If anyone has any suggestions I'd love to hear them.

I will. I'm thinking of just going with a plain old A2 buttstock too.
