If you had a Mega Maten receiver set and you were considering building it into a 6.5 Creedmoor target rifle, what barrels would you put at the top of your list?

A lot of folks speak very highly of JP barrels and they come with a head-spaced bolt.

For about the same money, Fulton Armory has heavy contour Krieger barrel that might be better for me as I will have to shoot suppressed. It does not come with a bolt.

It looks like I could get a Bartlein barrel but not direct.

Any other barrels you would put on the short list?

Thank you,
Henryrifle

I'd see if you can find a smith to build a barrel with a Bartlein blank, or look at Krieger.

The big three would be JP, Kreiger and Lothar-Walther that come profiled for an AR. Now getting a smith to spin you a barrel to AR profile may be cost prohibitive.

I don't have a 6.5 but I have several Rainier Arms Ultra Match Barrels in a variety of calibers ~ all good barrels, and accurate.

I have now built a 7mm-08 and a .243 AR10 with X-Caliber barrels in the 20" SPR profile and have another 7mm-08 in 18" light profile in progress. The first two are shooting very well for the owner, well under 1" at 100 with just initial testing loads.

This is the photo he just sent me of the first time shooting with .243 with 80grn varmint loads. The 7mm-08 he's had for a while was shooting better IIRC.
