Here's my short ugly rifle - 16.5 inch .308 with a 1 in 8 twist.

This one is 18" in .308. Shoots 178 Amax at 2610fps. The Kreiger barrel is shooting in the .2-.3's at 100 and holds moa further than I have shot. Built by Jon Beanland and fitted in a prototype Badger M2008 KRG Whiskey-3 chassis.

A few questions. What twist on barrel? Is the barrel melonited to get those velocities or is it a hot load? Please pm if you feel like sharing load info including COAL.

Your rifles looks amazing.

Re: 16-18 inch shorty rifles

Barrel is a 10 twist standard rifling (not 5R) Kreiger. Load is Federal brass, 178 Amax, Fed 210m primer, and 43.6 grains of Varget at 2.78" OAL. Chronographed through the suppressor and no pressure signs. Barrel has no Melonite treatment. Seems fast but dope verified out to 500 yards. Haven't taken this one out further yet. Thanks for the comment, this is one of a kind all the way.

Guys, I need some more inspiration - post up what you got!

I'm working on specking out a build and I'm somewhere in between Cigarcop, Cixelsyd & Winny's build.
