    I figured it was likely that you don't set their prices (not sure if there's even an MSRP on these), I just didn't know if there was some difference in what you sent one vs the other.

    Projects have begun again for the ARAK, but I cannot disclose anything further until we are ready to release them.

    7.62x39 barrel

    as I understand it, Faxon barrels for AR-15 in 7.62x39, are .308 bore, versus .310 or .311. i only shoot the cheap russian steel case FMJ (e.g. Wolf, Tula), regular old AK ammo, because it's so cheap. is there any drawback or concerns to stuffing a .310" bullet down a .308" bore? pressure? it's just a couple of thousandths on a malleable copper & lead projective, it seems to run fine, 100yd (and beyond) range plinking, no issues, same-or-better accuracy as my other-brands of 7.62x39 barrels (not real scientific, i know). just wondering. thanks!

    That's how the first Ruger Mini-30's were made.... as I understood it. I never worked with one or measured it but that was what Ruger was saying at the time.

    There is no problem running a .312 diameter bullet through a .308 bore.

    A few years ago I read an article in which the author pulled the bullets from some Russian made 7.62x39 and measured them with a micrometer. The bullets were .308"

    No, there is no issue with the larger bullet in the smaller bore, but we run a hybrid type rifling that can handle both.

    They key for us is we wanted to allow reloaders to use more common .308 bullets rather than being stuck with the poor selection of .311s.

    Nathan: thanks for the reply, much appreciated, and makes good sense. like i mentioned earlier, it shoots good, and if i hadn't read about the .308" bore on the other forum, i wouldn't have known any better. looking forward to your continued discussions on InRangeTV on Full30.

    respectfully, thanks again.
