I recently acquired a completed lower in .223 for myself.
I have lived in .308 land for quite a while now, and I do
love it! BUT I see a real need for a 5.56. (I.E. Cheaper
shooting, better to carry around, etc.)
I am pretty much sold on a 1-7" twist rate to shoot the higher
grain bullets, like the 69 - 80 grainers. And since I am
a "Service Rifle shooter wanna-be" I have nixed any notion
of getting a 16" barrel.
BUT I don't want a 20" barrel either, even though that's the
Model ONE sales has an 181/2 barrel in a 1-7" twist.
Does anyone here have any experience with this rig?
I want a hybrid rifle that can be a carbine, but yet
get the velocity that a longer barrel will provide.
What saith you all??
