        it should use the same wrench as an ar15? That's how they advertised it at least.

          Im sticking with the 308. Got the LRI Match barrel.

          The barrel nut came off easily however the Jam Nut used for the head spacing it really in there.

            Looks like there is a lock tab under some of the shrouding. Start around 1:30 to get past the hokey stuff.

                The video makes it look like the locknut isn't that tight (don't they always?). Looks like you need a heat wrench.

                    Are you maybe grabbing the receiver in the vise too near the threads - squeezing things enough to make it bind?

                      I dont think so. I tried a few different ways. Even tried clamping the barrel in soft jaws and using the receiver wrench to turn that and nothing.

                          For it to be so tight it snapped your vise, I wonder if some metal shavings got stuck during manufacture and created a weld...
