Went ahead and ordered a sixteen inch .223. Hope it shoots as well as my 6.8's do, I'll be happy with that!

Can’t wait for the Recce/Socom’s to be back in stock. I’ll place a multiple barrel order with correct sized gas port when they’re available. Glad to see they’ll be 4150 and QPQ.

I have 50 RECCE profile barrels coming with 5/8 thread same as Socom.
Are the RECCE profile barrels you have coming 5.56 barrels, like these?

OMG!!!!!! That's precisely what I want in my 6.8 barrel. The SOCOM is damned close but doesnt have the capacity to mount a standard FSP due to the short gasblock boss. This though is perfect, unless its 5.56 only.

Both are the same but both have a 1.1" long gas block boss.

Both the 16" SOCOM and Savage 6.8 barrels are being Melonite treated, hopefully have them back by late next week.

Long-time lurker and first-time poster. Wondering if the 18" Tac 30 barrels are "Not Very Likely" like they were in 2019, or if there is hope this year.

Thanks for taking the time.

I'm certain that this ^ is funny. I'm so new, I don't get the joke - unless Walther barrel group-buy deals continue to be a PITA like they are in the rest of the world.

Or they just suck.

I've talked to Noveske about getting barrel blanks. That was a No Go. They use FN CHF barrels and do their own finish. I don't know where the SS "target" barrels come from. There are smaller makers I'm talking to now.

But I don't know how to get the chamber dimensions for Tac 30 versus .30 Herrett, and I haven't seen what the gas system length is. Is Mid-Length the 'favored' gas system, or should I be going 'Rifle'?

First thing is since the original 30 Herrett was a rimmed cartridge you have to get new headspace gauges made for a rimless version. Any 30 Herrett dies will size brass for any 30 Herrett, 30 HRT or TAC30 chamber. The differences are the length of the case and the freebore.
I heard years ago that the American 30 was first designed as a 30/6.8 with a 6.8 diameter shoulder, then those guys figured out the 30 Herret dies were .410 and would not properly size the American 30 cases. then they had to try 2 or 3 more times before they figured out what size to make the reamers so they would work with 30 Herrett dies. I do not know if they ever made American 30 dies.

Yes I returned a few hundred barrels to Lothar but, I've returned batches of barrels to Green Mountain, Wilson and Daniel Defense too.

Thanks, constructor, for the reply. I was asking just a few posts above if you think there are 18" barrels this year in TAC30, or if I should go it alone. I'm probably a giant fan of the 3R thing you're rockin' in other calibers.

Got any feedback or advising re: your barrel stock and/or plans?

Can we pre-pay for a couple of the 223wylde recce/socom barrels? What was the old gas port size you were using, .068?
