Is it worthwhile to use a 16" barrel with a 6.5 Grendel?
shut up, potsticker
Sure it is. Here's a chart with ballistics data for a bunch of different barrel lengths.
I may have to change my 16" piston upper order to a 6.5G...
If you need Grendel ammo, I have 60 rounds of Wolf Gold, and a few hundred SMK and Berger VLD projectiles.
May also see if I can have an 18" barrel thrown on there instead...
What's the word on the Scenars for defensive loads? I know they're stupidly accurate.
Oh, and I have 2 Hi-Cap (they used to call them 26rd) magazines from AA and one 10 round mag.
Any of the OTM rounds are going to work. I don't know if there's terminal ballistics data out there, but if you're interested in defensive loads, I don't see the point in spending the money for the Scenars. The SMKs will likely do the exact same thing, at a lower cost.
An 18" 6.5G built on a MUR is sounding really good right now...I need to put the beer down...
Basically they all rock.
My Grendel that I took apart and sold off before I ever fired it.
Yea im thinking 90gr TNT for Home Defense would make someone have a really bad day
I'm going with one of these 18 inchers when I start my grendel build this late winter
No 16 inchers though
A practical 18" build (read: not fucking 20lb and balancing on the muzzle brake) in 6.5G would be interesting. Seems like it's mebbe the best way to toss some long/heavies out of an AR platform (and prolly even better than a 308AR10).
What are you thinking THT?
Looking for a somewhat jack-of-all-trades rifle capable of CQB or 500yd+ accuracy with a swap of the optic. The build would be:
16" or 18" Addax Tactical ATAC GPU built on either a MUR or standard receiver
Noveske N4 lower
UBR w/ 0.7" buttpad
ranier arms has a couple AA barrels in stock.
I'd have Chris at Addax build it since I'm a dealer and could get things cheaper than retail
I called you a potsticker
Why yes, yes you did.
In case you're curious, here's a 16 and 18 inch 6.5G vs a Black Hills 175gr .308
Oh, my bad...I must have missed it since I'm not used to looking so low.
I'll make you watch as I fornicate with your wife? or would that be punishing both of us?
