Default I ordered my new upper for one of my AR's, thoughts?

Just ordered my new upper assy. for one of my AR's

BUSHMASTER FIREARMS INTER 20" Predator Upper Receiver Barrel Assembly

Adapted from their very accurate and successful 24" Varminter, the Predator
Upper Receiver/Barrel Assembly's 20" Fluted Extra Heavy Barrel is button
rifled 1 x 8" twist to stabilize the heavier 69-77 grain bullets that a predator
hunter/caller would choose for bigger varmints and predators. This superb
barrel features fluting for increased cooling and weight reduction; an 11
degree competition crown; 1" diameter heavy profile under the handguard;
custom match hybrid chamber with a tighter SAAMI Spec headspace from the
shoulder of the chamber to the bolt face, and longer chamber throat or
"Leade". This chamber accommodates 5.56mm ammunition without developing
higher pressures encountered when firing 5.56mm ammo in a .223 chamber with
shorter "Leade" (both calibers can be used safely). This Upper is sold
complete with Bolt, Bolt Carrier and Charging Handle to ensure positive
lockup between bolt and barrel extension. The Predator Upper also features
a Vented Tubular Aluminum Free-Floater Forend with Bipod Stud (free-floats
the barrel from the barrel nut forward) and B.M.A.S. 1/2" Mini Risers to
add scope height for correct sight picture and comfortable cheek weld.

Mfg Item Num: PURVMB20FPRE
Type :Upper Receiver Assembly
Model :Varminter/Predator Upper Assembly
Finish :Hard Anodized

"A strong body makes the mind strong. As to the species of exercises, I advise the gun. While this gives moderate exercise to the body, it gives boldness, enterprise and independence to the mind. Games played with the ball, and others of that nature, are too violent for the body and stamp no character on the mind. Let your gun therefore be your constant companion of your walks." --Thomas Jefferson, letter to Peter Carr, 1785

That's a good looking upper you got there. What will the application be? Target shooting? Varmint hunting?

Looking forward to a Range Report when it gets home and fitted to your lower.
