Varmint I assume being a 223? Profile for the barrel? Heavy, match, standard?

Depending on options commercial (RRA, dpms) all make good varmint uppers.

If you want a custom for a good price I can build you one as well as other builders. If you'd like we can discuss options or I can slip a name or two your way.

I own and have a few buddies that have the DPMS uppers in both 20" and 24" heavy barrels. All are in 1:9 twist and give excellent accuracy, sub .5 MOA, with 50- 69 gr. bullets.
