Default The Build Begins...

Thanks to our esteemed Dog2000tj, I know have a Territorial Gunsmiths 2nd Amendment Edition Lower, on which to start my build.
With the lower ready, I will be going with the RRA LPK with Ergo grip as recommended by Canebrake in another thread.
Then from there the question will really begin...What Caliber?, Barrel Length?, Twist Rate? Build the upper or buy complete? and numerous others.
I am open to recommendations and thoughts of previous builders and from others past experiences.
So without further ado...Let the build begin.

I would go with the .223 if nothing else but for the abundance of ammo and comparative affordability of it. That's if you want to shoot the rifle a lot.

If you do that, I would go with as fast a twist rate as you can so you can shoot heavier bullets if you want to.....but I think most AR barrels come with at least 1:9.
