    I want to do something different with my second upper... 30 ar is impossible to get a barrel and bolt for any more. I don’t really want to make brass.

    Maybe 7mm Valkyrie if they get the Starline brass going.
    Why base it off of the valkyrie with hopes of starline brass? When you could base something off the grendel that has lapua brass readily available. The grendel is a far superior case design.

    I have yet to shoot the 300blk barrel, so I guess I can't really say much about it, but the others I shoot have been good. One of the .223ML barrels has seen over 10,000 rounds at this point, the other .223ML is still new in package.


    Also, for a point of interest the MRA handguards fit the MS upper really nice, the lines of the guard and upper match nicely. (I can post a pic later, I haven't received my 2nd run order yet, but I bought another upper privately that I have at home)

    For the sake of being different.

    If I wimp out I’ll do 6.5 Grendel or 6.8SPCII.

    Just FYI...MRA will be producing a full rail version of their V1 M-Lock handguard, available early next year. I contacted them last week regarding this and that was the timeline I was given.
    You have enemies? Good. That means youíve stood up for something, sometime in your life - W.C.

    Does Any one have a weight on just the SS receiver set (upper and lower)? I'm planning on doing a light weight build here when I get my other receiver in but can't find the weight on ATRS' website.
    TIKKA T3X varmint stainless, MDT ESS chassis system, ergo grip, SIG Tango4 optics, Cadex MX-1 brake.
