I have been looking for a faster .243 Win barrel to handle the DTAC and heavier bullets. I'm looking for a 1 in 8" and see only 1 in 10" as the common barrel. Is there a reason not to produce the 1 in 8" for the 308 platform?

With our rifling type we get an improvement in velocity which means we can use a slower twist rate That being said give me a call and we will discus your application. Also we are now making a 1x9 twist for the 100gr bullets in the smaller cased ammunition
Cost of the barrel will depend on length and diameter. Gale, in the office can help with that.
Dies for the 20 LBC can be done in two ways. 1 order a set of custom dies. With form dies. 2. Use a set of Redding 22 PPC Type S full length bushing dies with correct bushings. You just hold the size die off .070 You seat the bullets with the 22 PPC seater.
The upper will work. You will have to change out the barrel. It would be easier to build a separate upper in 20LBC.How ever the bolt is the same as the 6.5 LBC
K: Just curious, what percentage of total sales of barrels in standard chamberings, are sold for each of the cartridges listed? I would think 5.56 has the largest share with 6.8SPC or 6.5LBC 2nd or 3rd. But that's just a wild guess. Any estimates? thx - CW
