    Hows the barrel working out. I've been looking at the same barrel and upper for my grendel build.

    I love it! Most accurate with 32.3grs of Leverevelotion and 123gr SST's. Puts the velocity right at 2,610 fps. Only factory load I have ran in her is PPU 120gr hps those too are very accurate.
