Finally close to finishing my first build and looking for a barrel. Doing the research thing etc, anyone have any thoughts on where to get an 18" chambered in 5.56? Currently scouring the net, and... Barrel after barrel is out of stock. I have choices in .223, but I really was planning this build around 5.56...
Just starting the research lol, going to keep looking, need to do some more reading on twist rates. What I found was a 1in7 twist, was hoping for 1in8 ...but, I could be wrong. Bet they both shoot fine lol
Try krieger barrels. They will make it with whatever degree crown twist length diameter fluting chamber dimension that you want

The problem with being stupid is you cannot simply decide to stop doing dumb things...
Consider a .223 Wylde chamber, not too many 5.56 Nato 18"ers.
The wylde can run both .223 remington and 5.56 nato with no problems.

Going to go back and do some re-reading about rifling/twist rates, from what I recall right now, this should shoot great for me, might just work best with slighly heavier grain bullets - looking forward to trying out a bunch to see what shoots well etc, and start reloading fun fun fun
