Default Start to finish

Hello.

I am considering building a rifle from scratch. I have an idea on how I am going to build most of the rifle but, I am unsure about a few things regarding the barrel. The calibre will be 5.56mm X 45. The length of it will be either 10 or 14 inches.

Things I would like answered are:
What diameter should the barrel be?
What should I use to drill the barrel? Ie what type of drill bit?
How can I rifle the barrel?

If you think I need more info, please give it to me. I am wanting as much info as I ca get before I start the project.

Sean.

Welcome to FTF. You should start with going to the atf website and reading up on the firearm laws.

What country? Also details of the build. How would we be able to answer your questions with such vague info?
