new AR project 7mm-08

So Thanksgiving break is coming, I needed a project, I have a 308 and 260 AR, so I have decided to buy a Bartlien Blank and make a 22 -24 in barrel for my AR10(DPMS) and chamber it in 7mm-08
not sure why just never see them...I know R25 in a 20 inch is out there but I figure with a Premium barrel and slightly longer, it may be a winner

I'd like to hear some results on your build. I've got a fondness for the 7-08, would love to see an AR running it.

+1

I have always wanted to build an M1A in 7/08

I would also like to hear how the AR 10 does with a premium barrel.
