If you have a Group Buy barrel from Satern, the go/nogo gauges aren't needed. They are used if you don't know what barrel you have or questioning used barrels in my opinion.

Say if you buy a Black hole Weponry Barrel, I would use them becuase you might have a short chamber becuase they use Type I and Type II Bolts, .125 Bolts and .135, this requires finding out what you have rather than rely on what someone tells you. IMO

You can get LPK wthout a trigger (fire control group) for around $40 to $50.

Go to Ammo Seek and find some ammo and usually under $20 a box plus shipping, http://ammoseek.com/ammo/6.5mm-grendel
Selway is a good priced place to find it and they ship fast. 

Scope, build the rifle and do lots of research but I like Vortex and the Diamondback HP is a nice and good priced scope.

For a good more inexpensive scope i go with Redfield and if i want better i go with Leupold. I bought a Redfield from a friend unused for $150 and messed it up mounting it where the front bell section came loose from the center piece. I mailed it to Redfield/Leupold and they replaced it with a Leupold VX2 a $550 dollar scope. They made me into a loyal customer now. Its Redfield or Leupold all the way for me. My next build is getting a Leupold AR Mod 1 from ARhuntingrifles.com they offer us a discount of 5%. You just need the discount code which i can share in a PM. Or you can PM them directly to to handle ARhuntingrifles.

Always smart to get one of the common spring and pin sets. I get mine from Windham Weapons in case you loose any of those little buggers when your putting it together.

I all ways use go/no go gauges, Odds are that the head spacing will be good but I just want to make sure.
I'm looking at a parts kit that comes with a Magpul grip and enhanced trigger guard that accounts for the extra cost.
Thanks for the lead on common springs and pin sets, I have to admit I've had to tear apart the gun room looking for a spring before!
I will most likely have a pair of scopes for this rifle, one in FFP for precision matches and one for hunting.
I'm looking hard at SWFA's HD glass in a 20MOA mount and a good 4X?X50 for a hunting scope(fine mill recitals suck in low light) in a PEP style mount.
