    Re: 6.5 Grendel Bug....

    I have the bug now too. I want one for hunting but I am not allowed to use an AR for hunting in Canada (don't ask stupid restrictions in Canada) so I need it in the XCR or ACR. I hope once Alex is done with the XCR-M they will pursue the 6.5.

    I also have the 6.5 grendel bug. Hope someone goes to the shot show and reminds Alex that a bunch of us are waiting for the 6.5 for the xcr.
    I have dies and brass waiting. I have also purchased a 7.62x39 xcr that I plan to use fiocchi for the brass to convert to 6.5.

    I have already converted 7.62x39 to 6.5 Grendel...... what a royal pain in the ass that is. With Hornady making it soon maybe the cost of brass will come down. I just went ahead and purchased 300 cases from Alexander. Costly but it is Lapua and very nice brass.

    What load data are you using for the 6.5.

    I use LoadData.com and like the 120 - 130grain bullets. I started with the 6.8 SPC, but the lack of bullet selection had me pissed. I have always liked the sectional density of the 6.5 so I guess it was a progression. Shot my sons 24" Overwatch today....... WOW ..... one ragged ass hole at 100 yards. I no longer have the luxury of Fort Benning's various ranges to check this monster out...... damn!!!!

    Re: 6.5

    Well, I just sent out the first XCR in 6.5 out for some testing by one of my long time friends and customers. We've had the parts for a few years but had some concerns with the Wolf ammo. We'll see how this performs. We have just about finished the engineering on the .308 and, as promised, we'll go back and give the 6.5 another look.

    Thanks Alex. Once you get that 6.5 set up right send some up to us Canucks here in Canada.
