It helps with the depth of field issues and cut parallax offsets. Other than Sniper S*... you can use it to ensure you're clearing near range shit like a yucca leave or other obstacles like small branches while hunting. It is not as funky as one might think. Although that's a fairly large hole, it less effective as close, but it would be brighter.What's with the hole in the scope cover in the X-Ring video at 2:30 mins ?
Just curious why be heaps 6.5 barrels? Because you all shooting 6mm in PRS now? I really like the 6.5.Easy enough to watch the classifieds here. I would guess $500-$600'ish. It's a lot of supply and demand. There will probably be a bunch of new/used 6.5cm barrels for sale when the ATX starts getting out there. I picked up a new AI barrel for $600 and was happy to pay that, but seen some go for less.

Just reading this thread and wanted to drop a line telling you great job on the video. Useful information. Been watching a while. Wish you continued successJust wanted to drop in and say hello and thanks to everyone at Accuracy International and the Hide. I just released a full length video on the rifle at the range. “X-Ring” on YouTube.
Finally got around to this. The factory AIAX 6.5 Creedmoor weighs 4lbs 8oz.Just watched those both. Very helpful like always . Since you’ve had your hands on it I was interested in the results with the 6 Creedmoor barrel you threw on it. I really don’t plan on using the 6.5 Creedmoor barrel it comes with and already have a 6 Creed barrel on order to ship at the same time as the rifle. We’re the weights in barrels different or the same? You kept mentioning the weight of the 6.5CM barrel it comes with but not how that stacked up to the others (unless I missed it). What’s recoils feel like between the 6CM and the 6 Dasher out of that? Always appreciate your info, and thanks for the help
Personal preference. Why run an impact vs a Curtis? Why a foundation vs MPA? Why a TT vs Bix n’ Andy trigger. It’s all in what someone prefers. I prefer an AI so I would have an advantage running this.
In all honesty customs have come a long way since that video was shot.I keep wanting to justify this purchase when I think about having potential issues with a custom .....maybe the slight increase in expenditure (buying the AI) ....is buying piece of mind.
- Some customers have reported a Point of Impact shift if the barrel is struck with a Barloc installed.
- American Rifle Company has not fully tested what level of impact is required to cause a shift.
- There are no safety issues. If this may be a problem for the intended use of your rifle, consider using a standard barrel nut or standard shouldered barrel and an action wrench to remove the barrel.
