    Decisions, decisions.

    With 3 LRB M14BR receivers on the way, I am in the process of trying to decide on a choice of barrels to use. What I have in the shop, or order new from Kreiger.
    Will probably use some of these initially and then go onto the Kreigers at a later date.

    On hand:

    2. USGI contour 22" chrome lined.
    1. Med weight SAKO Lowell repro.
    1. Ultra heavy 6.5 Creedmoor.
    2. Ultra heavy .308 Winchester.

    Sounds perfect, with those choices and if it was my projects I might do a standard USGI type straight forward build, on the 2nd cut the medium barrel to make another one of those compliant Socoms but maybe a bit more accurate, and a precision type build/maybe another 10 dot rifle if you have a stock for it.

    What do you have in mind?


      Trying to decide. With 3 to build this Winter, I am considering exactly what you suggest. Stocks are not a problem. I have just over a dozen in the shop waiting for new actions to be bedded.
