    Need Ideas for custom barrel

    After reading the thread about the nitride treated barrels I have decided to call a guy I know who makes custom barrels ( and custom one of a kind firearms) to have him make a barrel for my XCR in 5.56. Ive already decided I want stainless and I don't want to SBR (at least not right now). Im trying to decide on length and twist rate as well as rifleing type button or cut possibly even trying the .223 wylde chamber. Let me know what you would do!

    If it could be anything, i'd go for:

    1:7.7 twist
    Wylde chamber
    Hammer forged stainless barrel
    Nitride treated
    18" twist
    Have the bolt trued to the barrrel

    Make sure he "burns" the inside so the wine doesn't get tainted by the wood and careful where he drills the bunghole.

    That barrel is screaming to be a 6x45, beats hell out of the 5.56 and the cases are easily made from those pissant little 5.56 cases we all have a boatload of. The LoadData site has a good bit of data on this cartridge and it IS accurate as well as legal for deer. :duh: ;D :2cents: :fencing:

    I would need the 6x45 bolt to though. Although I have no doubt he could make one I really don't want to spend that much. If I were going to do anything crazy Id go with 458 socom or 450 bushmaster so I could deer hunt in Indiana with the xcr.
