Hello,

I'm getting ready to build another gun & was wondering if anybody is doing a chrome lined 6.8mm in either 16" or 18", standard or middy?? All replies & advice is greatly appreciated!

I have been looking for a non chrome lined.

I dont see many rounds going through it and most rifle barrels arent chrome lined. So I dont see much of a need here.

I thought JTAC had chrome-lined 6.8 barrels?

6.8SPC velocities are much slower than standard 556, so barrels ought to last longer

When I finally get my 6.8 I hope the barrels are chromed. I don't want to deal with rust, corrosion or the like, I prefer the longevity of chrome, and the lack of a break in procedure.

After shooting $4000 worth of ammo, you can't afford another $300 barrel??

I'm planning to go 20" stainless steel for my 6.8. I hope to have my new upper ordered within the next week, or so...

BTW, Paul over at Bravo Company USA is selling 16" and 20" chrome-lined 6.8SPC uppers:

My reasoning exactly! My PSS & LTR aren't chrome lined but they never get the round counts that my AR's do. Also they are a heck of a lot easier to clean!

I don't want to screw around changing barrels and rezeroing. I also wouldn't want to work up a great handload just in time to have the throat go kaput on me.
