some heavy rounds i'm seering require a 'throated match barrel' does the following upper/barrel combo have this?

http://www.bushmaster.com/shopping/uppers/post-ban/purvmb24ah.asp

also, does it have a 1:7 twist to assist the heavier rounds?

1/9.


Also, if a twist isn't given on a Bushmaster description, its always 1/9.

XM223M1............80 gr.

with that barrel and that twist rate, what kind of groupings would be expected at 600yds w/ that round?

That you'll have to ask in the Competitive shooting forum. You sure you want a chrome lined bore?

not particularly.........what assembled upper/barrel combos have a 1/7 twist w/ a 24" heavy barrel w/ no chrome lining for that price?

I would recommend the varmint rifle upper from White Oak Armament (www.whiteoakarmament.com/)

it's price similarly, but comes with a 1 in 7 twist that will stabilize an 80gr bullet well. Call Jeff Miller and ask him how it's throated, but I have a service rifle upper from WOA that shoots 80gr sierra's that are loaded long with ease. The 10 ring at 600 yards is 12 inches wide.

Oh yeah, that's with a sling and iron sights, so a bench/bipod and glass would probably shrink that down.

Did I mention that White Oak is great?

They'll assemble it with whatever you specify, 20"-26".
