    Best Barrel for 6.8 AR

    I know it's not really an XCR related topic but I'm looking at building a 6.8 AR. Does anyone have any decent experience of aftermarket barrels for this caliber?

    I'd love feedback on decent barrels and also pointers to whether midlength gas is better than carbine length for this application.

    Thanks in advance.

    Mickey, Go over to the 6.8 Forum as that's where you will most likely find your answers. Did you ever finish your 6.5 Grendel build?

    Not yet, waiting on the barrel. They screwed up and used a 7.62x39 bolt to headspace and then sent it off for Melonite treatment. Had to throw it away, but the replacement will be 50% off!

    I have a Noveske 18" 6.8 that is great. Shoots sub 1/2 MOA with the right loads.

    My Daniel Defense barrel is pretty nice and more accurate than I am. Shooting right at 1 MOA with factory loads.

    No, mine is an early production pre-CHF. I think they probably are now. I was getting those results with SSA Tactical loads and Hornady Factory 2nds.

    Spike has a 6.8 rifle and I hear the is price right/great weapon.But i really like the design lines and engineering of the Robinson Arms XCR. I pray that my 6.8 works great. Then, I will buy the -M model. Oh, yeah...I am psyched.

    I have an XCR in 6.8 but I want better accuracy, and the only way to get that will be with an AR.
