    I've been pondering buying a new Bartlein barrel in 6.5 Creedmoor to rechamber my rifle from it's original 308 WIN. My other considerations are finish building an AR-10 from a lower that I purchased a few years ago or the AR-9 lower that I have. Both AR lowers are finished, I just need a complete upper for either one. All 3 projects interest me, but I currently only have the finances to complete one of these projects.

    Factory Parts:
    Original Action
    Original Bolt
    Original Barrel

    Mods:
    MDT HS3 Chassis
    MDT Skeletonized stock
    Hogue oversized AR-15 style grip
    Nightforce NXS 5.5-22x56
    Nightforce Titanium Rings
    Timney Trigger
    American Precision Arms Gen 2 Fat Bastard

    If money is an issue I'd build out the AR-9. Not the most practical use of the AR platform IMO, but fun as hell to shoot and ammo cost less.

    Lots of barrel life left. I'd go with the ar9 as well.

    Could put a 6.5 barrel in the ar10...

    I actually already have one AR-9 pistol and ammo isn't an issue (I've been reloading for over a decade now). The second AR-9 lower that I have will be a 16" rifle size PCC. I considered building the AR-10 into a 6.5 Creedmoor, but the idea of pissing away Match grade rounds in a semi-auto platform doesn't sound ideal. Whereas the Rem700 is my ideal platform for sending 6.5 Creedmoor. My idea is that the AR-10 will eventually be a 308, the Rem700 will be my 6.5, and I will have a second AR-9. I will complete all of these projects, just not at the same time.
