I'm looking to build a 1000yd gun. I would like to build it with a 6.5 twist heavy barrel, flat-top. Who makes one? Any other ideas? Thanks!

Man, that's the longest barrel I've ever heard of! I wouldn't want to pack that one! LOL!

Are you looking for a 6.5:1 twist barrel in .223 -- or a 6.5mm barrel, like the Grendal?

I would like to get it in .223 to shoot the 90gr bullets. Thanks!

Have fun. Most of the long range shooters are using 6.5 and 7.62.

Right, but I would like to try with the AR. I would even consider the 6XC barrel, but I don't know that they make that barrel for the AR. Jst my $.02.

You might consider sticking to a barrel length between 16" and 24".



Actually it works really well. You just load up a magazine with 1 live round on top of 10 or 12 blanks. Then just keep pulling the trigger until something comes out the other end. It's a bit of a handicap for the rapid fire stages though.

Sorry, couldn't resist, and yes, I know that wouldn't actually work.
