The one in the middle is a 243WSSM. The upper is from Dedicated Technology. I tried to find seperate barrel and receivers for this build but couldn't so I just ordered it from them complete. The other 2 are complete builds by myself in 223.

Looks great!

Nice all-around.  Tell us more about the 243 WSSM.  Barrel length, twist, velocities, what mags you're using, preferred bullet(s)?

Thanks guys.
Chris, Just took it out for the first time yesterday to break in the barrel. It is a heavy barreled 22" stainless button rifled 1in10 barrel flutted w/ Norrell Molly resin finish. I only put 50 rounds thru her yesterday. I used an 80gr pointed soft point generic load I had gotten thru a gunbroker.com auction. No idea on the powder or speed. I mainly wanted the brass for reloading in the future. I do know it was shooting 5 shot groups sub 3/4 min. when I was done for the day. The wind was 15 to 25 w/ 35 mph gusts. Not a great day to try to zero in. I do have 300 rounds of Cooper Arms Varmint Extreme loads with 75gr V Max that I'm going to put thru it next if the wind ever calms down.

The picture shows it on a RRA lower but last night I swapped it around and put one of the Spikes under it. All my lowers have RRA NM 2 stage triggers on them but for some reason the ones in the Spikes lowers seem to pull much smoother. Can't quite figure it out but oh well. You can use any standard mil spec AR 15 lower for the 243 WSSM.

MMissile,
  It's a Vtac I ordered through JP Enterprises in the green color. I have the same one in black one in the middle one except I haven't put the top rail on yet.
