I went into sportsmans warehouse today and held the BMP and the LRP. One thing I noticed is the 6.5 creedmoor BMP didn't have a barrel nut on it. But the 308 version of the BMP did. Anyone have any info on this?

I dont think it matters much, it just means the other has a shouldered pre-fit barrel. If you ever change barrels you can still do either or with your new barrel.

NOT having a barrel nut means the barrel is mounted more solidly and that's a good thing.

It has always been the case that a shouldered barrel is more solid than locknut attached barrel.
This is nothing new.

Bergara said some time ago they did away with the barrel nut. Maybe the .308 you saw is a year or two old?
