I've got a 20" standard profile barrel on order from BHW (waiting is really going to suck) and am shopping for parts.
Am I correct in understanding that the barrel will arrive with the headspace already checked and that I can get a Type II bolt and I should be good to go?
Is Tactical Ammunition a good source for the bolt?
I've read on some other boards about issues with broken extractors,,, has anyone had issues with that and what is a good source for spare/replacement extractors?
I apologize in advance for pestering you guys,,, but I'm pretty excited about this build and it is my first time (be gentle with me) so I'm going to have a lot of questions.
So far, I've - Ordered - BHW 20" Standard profile, machine finish, target crown Ordered - Aero Precision upper (should arrive tomorrow) Need to order .264lbc type II bolt from Tactical Ammunition Need to order gas tube and gas block (haven't decided yet, open to suggestions) Need to order - free float handguard Need to order - dies (Hornady), brass (Lapua/AA) and bullets (123 Amax)
I talked to Stacy today and it sounds like they have a few barrels on hand, one of which might work out for me. She said if everything looks good it might ship out next week. I'm pretty jacked!
I've only dealt with Stacy and Kiz, but they both have been great! Nice, professional and helpful. If the barrel is as good as the BHW employees,,,,,, I'll be delighted.
So far, I've - Ordered - BHW 20" Standard profile, machine finish, target crown Received - Aero Precision upper (looks good) Ordered - .264lbc type II bolt from Tactical Ammunition Received - gas tube and gas block (JP adjustable steel clamp on) Need to order - free float handguard (tough to find a non-tacticool one,,, probably will order a Youngs) Received - dies (Hornady), brass (Lapua/AA) and bullets (123 Amax)
Sold a couple of handguns to help pay for all of this and some optics,,,,,, any suggestions on the optics? I'm thinking something like a 4-16x around $300-$350.
I spent some of my waiting time going through my homemade e-caller. In regards to our local coyote population - "We have to kill animals, or else they'll die!" - Uncle Jimbo ;D
