i'm thinking i need to thin the herd, counted them and i've got 11 rifles and the parts to build 3 more. then i think that's crazy thinking, hold on to em. but, if i were to rid myself of some which should i pick from this list?

1. 12.5"ARP in 6.8, Mega upper/lower, all good parts...ummm, this one is off the tabel
2. 4 - 16" 1 ARP Mega, 1 PSA with FN barrel, 1 Aero upper/lower with ARP Barrel,< in 6.8---1 PSA in 5.56
3. 2 - 18" ARP Mega upper/lower in 6.8
4. 2 - 20" ARP Mega upper/lower in 6.8 and 5.56
5. 16" Aero 308 with ballistic advantage barrel, 18" Falkor Defense 308 with ballistic advantage barrel

all of em but the 308's have FailZero bolt carriers and ARP super bolts

i'm thinking of divesting myself of the 5.56. thoughts?

That's what I did. I don't own a personal weapon in 5.56 anymore. I keep thinking of getting another one but instead I just use that money to buy more 6.8 ammo.

I got got rid of all my 556 16" rifles when I got into 6.8. I built a 10.5" 556 not to long ago and i shoot it the most now suppressed. Go figure!

I would not get rid of the 12.5" (love mine suppressed for hunting) and would thin the 18" and 20" unless you really have a use for them. IMO the 12.5" is all I need in 6.8 but I do have a few in 16" that I never shoot.

My 556 is a safe queen. Seldom comes to the range. I will hang on to it, for and if, all other ammo is scarce. Its sighted in and shoots good enough...

Having built only one 6.8 spc ll and loving the lower I built I will put together a 556 upper and stock ammo just because.

I'd think hard on letting firepower go in this day and age. My 18" mega upper/LMT lower 556 takes back seat to the 68's and 308's, still don't think I could bear to part with it. The trusty Norinco MAK90 sits next to the bed.
