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.

    26 inch Shilein 1-9 twist CM Blank, I will parkerize it when finished.
    barrel arrived



    after many hours on the lather I cut it down to 22 inches

    front of barrel is .845

    I prepped it for blasting in the morning
