But the ARC clearly looks superior on paper.
    +1 like for another OCW disciple!! This is the way.

    Brownells.com has Geissele 6 ARC mags in stock. I don't see rifles or rifle components available at this time.

    Mags are pretty pricey. List price for the 25 rounder is $65.

    There is a good chance I may go all in on the 6mm ARC, but I am going to wait until about this time next year to see how things shake out with it before I make that decision. The reality *for me* is, my 18 inch SPR/DMR rifle using 77gr match ammo will get the job done out to 500 yards just fine. For me it will always go back to the availability and price of the 6mm ARC ammo and if I really need 500 yards and out capability.

    So almost a year later and with a continuing component shortage, is there a general consensus on barrel length and twist rate yet?

    Or maybe asked another way, are there barrel lengths and twist rates that serve only 1 purpose (say long range only) rather than being a sort of “general purpose” rifle I could grab for mid-range target work, light hunting (white tail or pigs) or just fun at the range with the grandkids?

    18" overall length and 7.5" twist seems to be the norm. That's just from poking around and looking at what seems to be a common barrel across multiple makers.

    Thanks, I was seeing lots of 18" barrels but not many were stating the twist.

    Ugh, I’d just love this if I could have it in that Sig “Fury” cartridge style with the 80kpsi pressure limit and a bolt with the strength to handle volumes of it.
