That is too damn bad on the 223.

Scotts94,

It's 1 1/2 months later, than when they "were on their way"

Was hoping they were pausing to retool the mag boxes, but per Tennessee's report above, it does not sound like it.

I just picked up a second 6.5CM, this time in the #2 contour 24". Based on my 21" I expect this one to balance a little better and be easier to shoot offhand. The minimal weight gain will not be a negative in my eyes.

Would probably send my first down the road for a .223 or grendel if they release them in a configuration that catches my eye. Based on what just happened with the lipseys SA #2 offerings I will likely be a little more patient on the micro action game for that perfect combo.

So I talked to the guys at Barrett today. Had a long car ride. Felt like making some calls...

There will NOT be a 224 Val.

The .223 will be chambered in 5.56 and will be a 7 twist. Expect it end of this year, beginning of next. So not anytime soon.

Figured this thread could use an actual update.

That's odd, when TN is test driving them....

Berger 80g VLD average COAL to kiss in two rifles is 2.408”

Mag box is 2.436”

So with that bullet you can load to kiss with room to spare in the mag and even some to spare for future throat erosion.

I personally would not load to make contact with the bullet. When the chamber is precise and the throat is tight, I get great results with a little jump. Assuming the load has the best powder, density, primer to make consistent pressure and low velocity SD....

Think Tennessee is test driving a 223.

Perhaps this and the 280 availability could be asked on the other thread started by “Barrett Fieldcraft” - but I wouldn’t hold my breath on a response.

Bravo

Maybe he can comment on the accuracy problems they are currently trying to work out...as told to me over the phone. That's the holdup as I was lead to believe.

Yup.

RPM,Throat Geometry and COAL latitude...reliably aligns ALL.
