Very nice! I am looking to build a 6.8 next. I already have the lower just deciding on the stock. I am not sure what to do with the upper. I am definitely going to build from scratch but I am not sure on the barrel. I don't want a stainless barrel and that seems to be the problem. I want to stay with a chrome lined barrel with the SPC II chamber. Also I am unsure on the bolt. I think I am going to get the rifle length carbon fiber free float tube for the hand guard.
Can I ask where you did your research? My primary function is going to be hunting. I reload and am really not planning on too high a round count on this rifle. So obviously ammo cost will not be a big deal either.
Looks like you reload as well. I have not heard of too many 6.8 owners that don't!
Looks great man, looking forward to the range report!
