Anybody Out There Shooting 6.5 Grendel?

I am thinking of building an upper in this calibre. I've never gotten along particularly well with the 223 in black guns even with heavy barrels.

I'm thinking of building an upper with a heavy contour 20" pipe for my AR ... but Jeez Louise... That's looking like a $1700.00 trick!

AR15s are money pits.


  1. I built my own scrounged the entire internet I gave about 600 in mine medium contour 18 in tube shoots real fine 3 shots under an inch are not unusual it is a great upgrade from 5.56 and is a legit hunting cartridge

    1. My guy up here in Alberta is recommending a 20" pipe. Anything unusual about this calibre and build that you think a guy should know about?

      The more I see of this calibre the more I like it...

  2. Black is only for evening wear anyway; how 'bout a nice piece of steel and wood?
