I'm actually getting interested in 7.62x40 over the 277, it's just too close to the 25-45 i already have

SPR profile and carbine gas of course, i just don't do mid-anything at this point

unless the x40 has issues with over gassing and the mid length calms it down?

I have 4 different x40 rigs; 16" mid, 16" carb, 18" mid heavy, 17.7" mid medium/SPR.  The mid-gas systems all work better for me than the carbine-gas using optimum x40 powders.  The 300 BO uses faster pistol powders and needs pistol or carbine gas.  The x40, running supers, is very happy with mid-gas.  My 2-cents.

I think my next x40 will be something unique, like a 17" super light-weight build for carrying in the mountains...  [idea]

Tooling and blanks are in, there's 3 batches of barrels before the x40, so maybe just a few weeks.
