    Default 264 LBC factory ammo

    This is Black hills 123gr SMK factory ammo, 2 shots to get on paper then this 5 from a customers light weight fluted 20" stainless 8 twist 3 groove. The group is 5/8 if I include my yank, the other 4 are in 5/16" . This is my second modification to the chamber design, looks like it works well with the factory ammo, very accurate factory ammo!!!

    SIX5 -6.5mm on a 6.8 case
    Nexgen the lightest 308 AR coming mid 2014

    Yeah, these are full customs built with Pac Nor, Krieger and Bartlein blanks.
    I don't see any need for production grade 264LBC/Grendels most of the guys shoot them for accuracy so I think I'll just stick with match grade barrels.

    LOL There's a new twist... "takes a match grade of this one to run with a production grade 6.8..." Ahhh... we do have fun.

    Les Baer. I think it was a 5 box minimum.

    I agree. Then again, some of your Shaw barrels perform so well in 6.8, would they deliver similar performance in 264 LBC?
    You are the result of 4 billion years of evolutionary success. Act like it.

    Don't know, I hope Hornady's new 120gr SST is accurate and becomes the 6.8 match bullet.

    I hope so, too. I have always liked the SST design and shoot them in my .308 bolt gun. They have always been very accurate in that gun.

    The .264 LBC AR seems like it could be a winner, too.

    There are a lot more guys shooting the 264 in tactical matches than I knew, we usually get an order every other week for a 264 and now we're getting a few 6BR or BRXs every week.
    Seems like most have their SHTF and bug out bags full of 5.56s, they are back to ordering what they WANT to shoot.
