The link you posted is for 'double-sided' foam...But, also pictured (and linked to) is single-sided (one side sticky) foam...I assume the double-sided would be sticky on both sides...
Oh crap. My bad. Here is the correct link.

Good to hear your guys JHR shipped, whats a long wait and it should be worth. I heard about some people wait for more than a year.

Ordered 2/3/18, set to be delivered on 2/11/19 - 6.5 JHR my first purpose built rifle to get into some of the PRS scene around me. I've had a Gen 1 razor in the box since April of last year, the hat that came with it is well worn but I resisted all urges to throw this on a different rifle until the JHR arrived!

Got tracking information and I’m on the wrong side of the equator to go pick it up. 😔

😂

I’m so excited to start load development I may just cancel the rest of this trip...

Has anyone gotten an update on the barreled actions? It feels like they just stopped putting them out in favor of the JHR's.

Nothing here yet, I would imagine it's going to depend on if they only have JH marked actions and/or Nucleus. When and what did you order?

From various threads & comments, there still seems to be some hold up in getting the standard nucleus actions from ARC to PVA for the barreled actions. Really unclear if its on PVAs or ARCs side. No word at all from PVA recently on whats going on or any guidance on delivery timeframes. Frustrating, but thankfully I've got other rifles to keep me busy. it'll get here when it does.

Order 43xx placed on 2/6/19 and got shipping notice today!!!!!








It’s just a barrel nut but I can be stoked right? All in all some of you have way too much patience and some of you very little.

This may be mildly helpful for you:

I'm 1837 for a BA ordered on 21 Jan, nothing yet. In full disclosure, I ordered an extra barrel as well.

Nice order...Question is, was it shipped/filled??? Lol
Nope. Context of the guy I quoted implied it will probably be a while. No worries though. I already have one nucleus built in 6.5creedmoor that I ordered direct from ARC. Put a PVA M24 24" barrel on that one too. Shoots good man.

Some motivation for those still waiting.

This is trip#3 with my 6.5SAUM JHC. First 2 trips I did 50rds each. Initially this ultra mild break in load was producing 2872fps average. I’m 120rds in And speeds have inproved to 2941 average with the exact load and ES/SD’s keep dropping. The battel is settling in nicely. After today she will have 200rds down the pipe and then I’ll do a proper trip to shoot for groups maybe tomorrow if time permits.

Oh and for the 6.5SAUM, ARC mag with an Area419 mag extender fits 9 rounds. Could use a more powerful spring though. Sometimes the bolt doesn’t pick up the last round. Or I could open up the lips a tad bit more so the round rides higher.

That's good to hear! I've left a message on Monday and emailed on Friday with no response to either. The lack of a post here explaining status of orders or an email back is what's getting frustating.

They seem to be shipping out the 60 actions they got in. Shot show surely caused some delays also.

Gentlemen. This is an update directly from Josh Kunz.

“I'll update the Hide again this weekend. I've been keeping my head down getting work out the door. We shipped 20 hancocks this week and we're sending invoice/FFL notices on Monday for the next 20. As well as the next batch of Nucleus barreled actions too.”

Some more chrono pics from today. The barrel sped up a full 130fps with the same load from new to 200rds in. Very impressed with ADG brass!! I have no reservations calling it as good or better than Lapua. Zero prep was done to this brass.

The 10 shot chrono is the same break in load. The 6 shot was one node up from that. I had only loaded 6 round of that charge. This Rock Creek barrel doesn’t dissapoint.

Recieved final payment request for order #2189,placed on 3/5/2018, for a 6mm Dasher JHR. Happy to finally have gotten to this point but what an 11 month cluster fook.
Now to see if I can get one 6 Dasher Mag Kit which has been out of stock for the last year.

I would be interested in hearing PVA's opinion on ARC temporally no longer selling the Barloc due to POI shifts.
