    I too was considering having a barrel made in 30 HRT caliber...

    It's a fine wildcat, however, It doesn't provide a substantial
    Improvement over the x39mm...with new commercial steel
    cased ammo in bulk so cheap, as well as bulk brass cased
    ammo at $7-$10 per box in bulk, I figured building a x39mm
    upper was going to be much more cost effective.

    A quality chambered barrel blank is going to cost you at least
    $300, and then send it to G'smith to have it threaded, fitted,
    crowned etc. is going to be in the $150-$200 range.

    A decent quality complete upper/kit in x39 cal. can had for $450-$500 delivered.

    So it really depends how much you want the 30HRT wildcat, and
    are you willing to spend the cash & time needed etc.

    Good Luck.

    Your right, After more research it's pretty involved getting one up and running. I like the 30 RAR but i don't know what remington is planning to do with it. They can't seem to get there act together on anything.

    The 30 RAR is another great round, but as usual Remington has
    dropped the ball once again...They have yet to properly market the
    round and more Importantly have failed to offer any brass to
    reloaders/hunters/target shooters etc.

    I would love to use the 30 RAR case as a basis for a .264/6.5mm
    wildcat version for the AR-15 platform...but alas, without good
    and reliable souces of brass it's a dead horse at this point.

    It has real potential @ 44 grains of H2O and would make a great
    overall round and a greater wildcat round in 6mm, 6.5mm & 7mm !

    Yep, A 6.5 would be awesome!!! I think i'm going to build an Encore barrel in 30 RAR. I have a 30 cal Green Mountain blank that is just sitting there doing nothing. 4D has the reamer for rent for 30.00. HUMMM

    Here is the first thing that came up when I googled 30HRT.

    Definitely like the idea of this round.

    Before you guys build your 30 HRTs, you might want to read Doc's post here.
