Db 10 6.5 to 308 barrel swap
« on: March 26, 2020, 11:50:55 PM »
Just got my 308 barrel in the mail and it looks like my gas block on my 6.5 barrel does not line up with the 308 gas block area wish I would’ve known looks like I need to have a new gas block for this new 308 girl so I guess the 65 has its own gas block in the 308 needs to have a gas block

Is the barrel diameter what you mean by not lining up?

the 6.5 creedmoor is rifle length and the 308 is mid length. Really all you will need is a tube if you are able to change it out on your own.

you will need a new crush washer and I'd change out the two set screws on the gas block as well.
