    6.5 Grendel Bug....

    Damn I got the 6.5 Grendel Bug, it's like the flu! Bought an M4 AA complete upper for one of my receivers I built. Then Gunbroker had a sale on a 16" barrel and bolt combo..... shit built a flattop with it and used another Multi caliber lower receiver I built. Both shoot fantastic groups.

    Then just before Christmas had this AA Upper on Gunbroker http://www.gunbroker.com/Auction/Vie...Item=151195597 I won the auction with a 24" barrel, scope, bipod, etc, whole package. Another "Multi" lower I built will go with it. Bill Springfield triggers.

    Alex missed out on building an XCR in 6.5G. It is very accurate, feeds well with the mags available, and is sure to be a deer, hog and vermit killer. Expensive to load but with Hornady joining the ammo makers that may change.

    As soon as I have my camera fixed, or buy a new one, I will post pictures. This 6.5G sure shoots rings around my 6.8 SPC. Plus the bullets available are from 90 to 140gr!!!

    GR8, Wish you were close I could use your "refinish" service, plus you could shoot these three little buggers. He He No kidding the 16" Grendel shoots better than my XCR 6.8 conversion AND my AR 20" 6.8 SPC. If the 24" AA Overwatch 6.5 Grendel shoots as well as they say I have a "Green Field" rifle for sure. I have been shooting Nosler 120gr BTs and the 120gr Barnes TTSX bullets...... one ragged hole in the same place. I am happy.......

    Pics?

    I got the Grendel flu bad too!

    My buddy went with an AA grendel upper a year ago and I opted for the XCR instead... I love to shoot that round though! The ballistics are incredible!

    Dammit. I had just decided on building a 6.8SPC upper for Hogs! Somebody convince me to build a 6.5Grendel instead since that's the route I originally wanted to go.

    My requirements though, are I want to keep the barrel down to 12.5". That's right Noveske Crusader length.

    One of the 65grendel forum members ("Variable") brackets that length, with 14.5" and 10.5" barrel Grendels.

    Re: 6.5 Grendel Bug....

    I must confess that my dad sent me some "Christmas Money" to fund my Grendel "Binge." He He, he said he didn't want Obama and the damn "Demms" getting any more tax money on his "pass ons." So I went out and bought a bunch of receivers and assorted parts and stuff. Well I now have a 6.5Grendel M4 Upper/Lower 16", a 16" flattop very sweet upper/lower, and last but not least a 24" Grendel Overwatch with side charging AA Upper. I need to get off my a**, shoot these things (all 3) and post pictures. ;D Trouble is it has been in the "teens", here in Alabama, and I have lost all my Yankee fortatude. :duh: Have to admit I like the Grendel better than the 6.8 SPC. It is always nice to know that you can reach out way past 300 meters and touch someone or something......... and do it with a heavier bullet. >

    I'm just building a new Grendel rifle, going with the AA 18" barrel and an Adams Arms piston system. I had a 16" before and sold it to a buddy who couldn't get over the groups. I wanted an 18 to give me a little more velocity as I want to use it instead of a .308 semi-auto.
