    Lol no worries I sleep like a rock. I'm a bit giddy though will be half the weight of my specwar. Do wish I'd put a little more research into it and gotten something light that would work with my 6.8sbr. My first attempt at the CF wrapped skeleonized K grip came in at 1.2oz but I messed up and the wrap sunk in some of the larger holes in grip making it funky looking, I've got a couple fixes to try out just lazy in the cold. Breastroker ar10 set he's getting is giving me the sweats but I have to hold off I'm trying to find a six8 set for a special build.

    LUCK
    is the residue leftover when you subtract chance from preparation.



    If you reload, turn a flat based bullet around and seat it backwards in the case with apx .170 of the full dia part of the bullet left outside the case. Chamber it. If it chambers you have a SPCII. If not start seating the bullet deeper. If the full diameter part of the bullets ends up apx .070 out it is a SAAMI chamber.

    Default Titanium Muzzle Brake 0.65 ounces

    Got my titanium brake, @ 0.65 ounces. Already ordered another one. If you google Weatherby Accubrake and many others use this spiral pattern for reducing recoil and compensation. No need to clock this bad boy. This is 0.80 ounces less than the V7 Furion at 1.45 ounces.

    breaststroker--- if you (or anyone else) wants to play around with "re-profiling" a barrel to lighten it up and not worry to much about screwing up an expensive barrel if something goes wrong, you ought to nab one of these when they come back in stock http://www.reloadingbrasswarehouse.c...308-bl-ap4.htm @ only $120 for a dpms 16" (only issue I see is that it's carbine gas) ... they also have melonite complete 308 BCG for $119

    My X-Caliber 16 inch is already sent out for re-profiling. I figure with the same material (416R) same inner diameter of 308 and the same profile as my Juggernaught 18 inch barrel the 16 inch should come in 2 ounces less.

    I've been following your light weight threads for some time with enthusiasm. Only thing that is missing from them is the wallet damage next to the weights. Hell, my google-fu is not strong enough to even find the 2A Xanthos.

    If you really want that 2A Arms Xanthos call them, I am sure they would be happy to put you on the list. They have a LOT of orders from Shot Show, not sure how many are already sold. I am sure they want to sell these as soon as possible, they must have a lot invested in this receiver set.

    They also have a matching AR 308 ultra lite hand guard coming, maybe another 30-60 days.

    between the receivers and the hand guard you will cut over a pound compared to the Mega. that means you can use that heavier barrel or stock and still have a under 7 pound AR 308.

    Ask for Justin, he is the Sales Manager. Tell them the guy from the 6.8 forum said they would be available soon.

    If you can apply for a LEO or mil discount, 10% off is $69.
