Who would be the best manufacturer to go with purchasing a 6.8 upper. I looked at J&T's but don't want a "post ban" configuration. I see Model 1 Sales has em but I've heard too much "con" about their quality. Can the .233 bolt carier be used with a 6.8 bolt head and is it true the .223 mags will feed 6.8? What say all?

I say stay away from any chrome-lined barrels made by E.R. Shaw... at this time.

Yepper, go SS.

I was wondering what is the problem with the chrome-lined 6.8mm shaw barrels? I was thinking about ordering a complete 6.8mm upper from Eagle Firearms.

Thanks Randall,

I am not looking for anything fancy. Just a standard grade chromed-lined 6.8mm barrel. I hope there isn't a quality problem with the shaw chromed-lined 6.8mm barrel. hinking.gif

Thanks Randall,

What are the SSA Extreme ammo? I was looking at just firing the factory Remington 6.8mm SPC. Will that be okay?

BTW, I have a chromed Shaw barrel that shoots in the .3XX" @ 100yds. It has flattened primers at only 25gr of H322. I have authorization to return for refund and I will. da-da-damn.

DPMS 6.8 upper has worked just fine for the last 2 months. Remington express and SSA x-treme rounds have cycled well through it. using a pri 25rnd magazine.

How are the Barret uppers? I have a friend who is going to get one as he thinks it has to be the best or Barrets name would not be on it.
