I would call Harrison at AR15Performance.com and talk to him about barrel length for the distances you're wanting to shoot.

I second the recommendation of contacting ARP. Consider their offerings for either a barrel or complete 6.8 SPC upper. There are few folks around that know more about the platform than H. (Harrison Beane).

I am also a satisfied customer of ARP.

Some good information and vendors here, too.

I looked into the 50 Beo a few years back and really wanted one but looking back I'm glad I went another direction. I just don't have a need for such a round.
