    Yep they make a huge difference in weight, highly recommend. You can add fluting, lightweight shrouds and firing pins but it is a drop in the ocean compared to a CF stock change.

    Where do you get the lightweight pin and shrouds from? I can only find the one at gunworks which is out of stock. I emailed them and they said it's been on back order from PnG for 2 years.

    I was running 120 NBT's in my 15 inch, but have stepped up to 140 NBT's now. They carry more energy and actually shot much better in my rifle.

    Using CFE223 in the short barrel.
