    6x45 re-barrel

    Who here if any has re-barreled one of their guns to 6x45 (6mmx.223).
    What drop in barrel did you use & where did you buy it from?
    I am looking to swap one of my old .223 FP10 rigs to the 6x45.

    I have a 20" AR15 in the same caliber so I am set on doing it in a bolt gun with a 24" bbl.
    Thanks.

    I would give Devin a shout over at Sin Arms and have him turn you one out. I was talking to him about doing one for me in a Varmint Taper. Keep us up to date with what you do, I would personally like to know how that caliber does.

    Ditto. Sinarms rules. I just got a sweet shooting 223AI barrel from him and it's shooting in the .3s and .6s with the first loads tested.

    Did you guys go with a Stainless match style bbl or a standard chrome moly bbl?
    The 6x45 is a great Antelope & coyote in my AR so far and runs in the .500"-.700" with 70 gr bullets.

    I have not gotten around to orrdering mine up yet. I was planning on stainless, but twist is still up in the air, I got time to reseach that one but i got to get a couple other things bought first like a better rest.
