    building my first ar. ive started my lower with spikes reciever, and components kit. im going to add a fully adjustable colapseable stock. looking for my upper components. im looking for 6.8 barrell. so much to choose from im a little overwhelmed. im most likely going with a 18 or 20 inch chromoly or stainless. twist rates from 1x9 to 1x11.bullet weights 115 or so. most my shooting will be at range 200 yrds, i want to build a real tack driver. any advise and suggestions welcome.
    thanks

    I would call Harrison at AR15Performance.com and talk to him about barrel length for the distances you're wanting to shoot.

    I second the recommendation of contacting ARP. Consider their offerings for either a barrel or complete 6.8 SPC upper. There are few folks around that know more about the platform than H. (Harrison Beane).

    I am also a satisfied customer of ARP.

    Some good information and vendors here, too.

    I looked into the 50 Beo a few years back and really wanted one but looking back I'm glad I went another direction. I just don't have a need for such a round.
