    #6 benchmark fluted 8 twist in 6.5-284
    26.5" long, 1.5" cylinder, recessed crown. About .750 at muzzle
    Chambered for 700 with factory threads and lug. (Not a guarantee it'll headspace on your action, call a smith!)
    Fits a rem sendero/varmint inlet almost perfect. Round count around 200, shoots like it should. I've acquired too many 6.5s lately and won't be needing this one anymore. It may have some minor marks in finish but it's really clean in nice shape. I'll remove it from action after payment is received. Barrel has now been removed and is listed on other sites.

    Shot good. I only personally shot one ladder test with it and it put a few around .5 at the normal nodes with 4831sc. I'll have to try to find my notes on it but it was 49.? And around 51. I don't remember exacts
