For those who have to stay under 26" on your pistol for state regulations , I just put a strike industries 5" tube on my pistol and it put me at 25 3/4 with my 12.5" arp . I just ran a couple of mags through it today and it ran flawlessly .I was shooting factory loads and the empties landed about 2 0 clock so I may be installing an agb in the future but happy to be able to stay with the 12.5" .

Thanks for that. length is becoming an evolving issue.

Well crap! Looks like I missed the last Savage 6.8 barrel. I'm torn between a 6.8 or 270-08 savage build. Have been reloading for my 6.8 AR for years now so I have lots of 6.8 stuff. Is the 270-08 barrel set up for the longer heavier bullets as far as where the lands start?

12.5" 6.8 end of Nov or first week of Dec.
12.5" 5.56 end of Dec or first of Jan.
ALL of that depends on which idiot locks down which state and when, It could easily move the schedule out a month.

Give me a few minutes to check in process orders, I may have 2 left.

There is one 6.8 magnum profile left.
The 270-08 barrels are the Savage light profile .550 at the muzzle, they are 10 twist so they will handle up to 150gr.

Magnum profile requires a heavy barrel stock? Saw someone used one of your barrels on a Remington 783?

Tell me about the 6.8 magnum profile, is it 18" and just beefier?
Straight taper from 1" down to .720" at the muzzle threads. It will not fit in the light profile sporter stocks without opening the channel.
