    I have a GAP 6 Creedmoor headed my direction so I am selling my 6mmAR package.
    [​IMG]
    This rifle is built by Robert Whitley and is loaded. It has a heavy walled billet upper, the receiver face trued, RRA two stage trigger, Atlas bipod w/ American defense mount, hogue free float tube, recessed target crown on premium barrel, extended feed ramps which have been polished. The set up will also include redding die and comp seater, cleaning rod bore guide, 6mmar modified case for OAL, 150 pieces of new Lapua brass, and a bunch (over 150) of once fired brass Lapua and Alexanger Arms (lapua) which I just deprimed and cleaned with stainless steel media, sling, brass catcher, gun guard tactical case.
    Scope and Rings are not included. Price for entire package is $2350 shipped. I may take a partial trade, but need the majority in cash to pay for my new toy!
    Accuracy on this rifle is ridiculous! Here are pics of a group shot at 500 yards off of a bipod:

    Here is info on the round for those of you who may not be familiar with it:
    The 6mmAR is a 6mm cartridge designed to function and shoot out of an AR-15. The cartridge was designed primarily to shoot high B.C. 6mm match bullets for "across the course" highpower rifle competition at 200, 300 and 600 yards, although it has many other applications. The cambering for the cartridge was designed primarily to shoot 6mm bullets at high velocities, and to provide significant ballistics and wind drift advantages over the standard AR-15 .223 cambering. Typically, for highpower rifle competition at the 600 yard line, the heavy 105 to 108 gr. match bullets (without moly or any special loading techniques) shoot well in the range of 2750 - 2800 fps from a 26" barreled upper and provide much better downrange bullet performance than the comparable 223 long line bullets. Some shooters have reported that with careful load development they are able to run the 105 to 108 gr bullets in the 2800 - 2850 fps range. For the "short lines", bullets in the range of 85 - 108 gr can also be used and loaded at magazine length, and also provide an advantage over the .223.
    The 6mmAR, when loaded with a 6mm Hornady 75 gr. V-Max bullet, provides a devastating varmint round that can drive the 75 gr. V-Max bullet at 3100+ fps from a 24" barreled upper.

    Lower is LWRC, barrel length is 24" twist is 1/8 I want to say the barrel is made by Hart or Kreiger. I do not know who Whitley uses to make his upper. I will see if I can find out for you.

    The upper is a modified DPMS low pro. They're real rigid and make an accurate upper.

    That round is made off the 6.5 Grendel case i believe.

    I have one built on a 22- 6.5 Grendel of 22 AR

    Robert can sure build AR to shoot long range.

    Good Luck with the sale

    How many rounds down the tube? How many rounds is the barrel good for?

    The rifle has about 400 rounds down the tube, I use it for coyotes and banging steel, so no rapid fire like in competitions. I have been told barrel life if between 3-4K rounds, but I am no expert in that department.

    Would you consider selling just the upper?
