So while we are talking about consistent barrel changes check this out:

I zeroed my latest .308 tube this past weekend. I want to know the sight offset for my 6.5cm tube. I put it on and torqued the quick lock screw.
This is the 5 shot group I got:

View attachment 7601819

first round was low the next four fell into a group .1 mil left. I haven’t shot this barrel in a while. IIRC this barrel has always thrown the first one low.

Before heading home I put my short .308 back on and torqued the quick lock screw. I fired 5 more rds through it to confirm all was well and that my zero was good. This is what it looked like:

I can’t complain.
What do you torque to. Just curious. I know AI says 55 others have said they do 60.

I use a 6NM fixit stick limiter which is 53 in lbs. AI recommends 5.5NM (49 in lbs)

I shopped around and found a fixit stick kit and torque limiter aimed at the bicycle market.

ETA: My shifts between barrels has always been consistent and less than 1 mil windage and less than 1.5 mil elevation. I was shocked these 2 were so close.

Seems like a more accurate “window”. But even from AI on their social media pages I’ve seen everything from April to May and now June.
Meh, I knew when I put the deposit down it would most likely be fall, anytime sooner would be a bonus.

LOLOL. The hurt feelings would be real. Nah, jk.

It's in hibernation. Got the NF ELR on my mind right now. It'll come out for the SH Team Challenge though
Man I’d even run my own barrel. Got one on hold at MHS. I’m down to my last 100 bullets for my 6.5 Grendel for matches right now lol. Drastic times

    I will give you my latest update on first deliveries of the AT-X. JUNE 2021
    Any date other than June was wishful thinking and not said by me. Q2/2021 was always the targeted date for deliveries from AI.
    I can also tell you that accessories to include long and short bridges as well as weights will also be available in June. Accessories cannot be ordered yet but I will let you know when they can be ordered.

    Is there a chance that the chassis will be available in that same timeframe for those of us who have an AT?

    At this time my best estimate for AICS is Q4/2021 and no later. I will be able to give a better timeframe next month. We are not taking orders for AICS right now, just rifles. Regarding the AT replacement chassis, it might be a possibility in Q3. We have to deliver AT-X rifles already on order. Again, I will know next month.

    AT is beyond proven, AT-X has only been pre-production tested.

    I get they're the same action, but something to keep in mind.

    AI fanboys feel free to flame away.

    We are at the machining stage of the first production and it will be another month before components are Cerakoted.
    After that, rifles have to be assembled so it will be the end of May when we can take photos. I will get them posted when we do.

    If I understand correctly, everyone with one pre-ordered is getting them in that same first batch correct? It’s not going to be a two part thing where depending on when you pre-ordered you may not get one that first batch? Correct me if I’m wrong

    I would imagine that would be dependent on your dealer, not AINA. They are selling you the rifle not AINA.

    Production deliveries to our two distributors, Euro Optic and Mile High, will start in June and continue through July and August for the first production orders. Deliveries will be weekly or biweekly depending on receipt of components to AINA.
    The second production run will follow the first so once we start first production deliveries, we plan to maintain a steady flow.
    When you receive your AT-X will depend on our distributors and color as components will be Cerakoted in the most efficient way as far as color is concerned.

    Am going to get my bartlein carbon wrapped sent to MHSA and chamber in 6 GT I think. Was going to get it in 6CM but a AI 6CM came up and bought it instead.

    I agonized over the caliber choice between 6CM, 6BR, 6 Dasher and 6GT. I read posts and blogs, etc., etc., and finally decided on the 6BR. I've been looking for factory ammo as well as sourcing components, I just need some Lapua brass and I'll be GTG. Lapua brass with a CCI 450, ~30.5grs of Varget topped with a 105 Berger seems a good starting point.

    I’m just worried about feeding issues with the BR family. I see a few options for magazine spacer kits for the AI AW mags but I’ve not heard of perfect feeding for any of them. They’re definitely pickier than a 6 Creed or a .308 for sure but also much easier to load or tune. Probably my second barrel out of it I’ll swap to a 6BRA or Dasher with Alpha brass

    Any 6BR parent case cartridge you are going to need to run AX mags with the HRD Gear 6mm magazine adapter. I have over 2000 rounds through mine with multiple AX mags and zero issues. Plug and play.

    I watched the AI Team shoot their 6mms with the HRD kit and no issues. As Blbennett said, I'm going to use the HRD and not look back.
