I am loading up 100 168 gr HPBT and a 100 175 gr HPBT both Sierra Match kings, and see which my two AR10's like. Will have a report on that in the near future.

Great to hear! I'm looking forward to seeing your data and hearing your thoughts on both... :thumbs:

I am going to set it up so the Standard AR10 with the 1 in 11.25 in twist and the AR10T carbine with the 1 in 10 twist each get 5 5shot groups with each off a lead sled. From that I should be able to analyze which is better for which. Guessing the standard will like the 168 and the T will like the 175, but I won't know till I do it.

I weighed everything up but keep in mind the weights below are without the trigger assembly....

Rifle - 9.2 pounds
Rifle + Scope - 11.0 pounds
Rifle + Mag + 20 Rounds - 11.2 pounds
Rifle + Scope + Mag + 20 Rounds - 13.4 pounds

Right now I'm glad I don't have the heavy contoured barrel otherwise I'll bet it would add an additional 1.5 pounds...

Any update? I have been studying your build with interest but notice this sub forum's threads have all gone cold for some reason...?
