Nice looking rig. Mine is sitting there just waiting on dies.

 

2 questions though.

 

Are you sure about the 1:8 twist. I think mine is different.

 

18" hand guard???

Mine is a 1:9. They do have a 1:8 button for 6.5. I know my 260 Remington is 1:8 for the BIG BULLETS. Either will be outstanding in the 6.5X6.8 Better a bit fast than a bit slow all things considred.

My 6.5 Grendel is also 1X8 P3 only in a 20" standard profile for deer and hog hunting.

 

You got me on the 18". That was a typo. It's 15". I wanted to cover the gas block on this on since its a pretty long thin tube. Looks great.

 

Heading to the range tomorrow morning to break this bad boy in properly. Check my post under brass sizing. It's a snap!
