I know I told you to join the 65grendel owners forum, but they actually have one for 350 Legend owners too.

Grendel doesnít show any advantages until you stretch yardage out to 3-400+


People are finding out the Grendel actually does well down to a 12Ē barrel.

6.5 has slightly higher SD than the 6.8 and in theory should penetrate deeper at all ranges on tougher animals or shots.

Let me know if you still want a Grendel upper. I have a 20Ē one that Iím thinking of selling but it wonít be a cheap one. Itís all premium parts but shoots unbelievably well.

Yep, the 6.5 SD is very appealing. I recently re-barreled my 6.8 and might have gone 6.5 had I not been so vested in 6.8 reloading stuff.

I am looking to build or buy a lightweight 6.5 Grendel for hunting.

Would appreciate any heads up on parts or complete rifle availability.

Jeff

Thatís what happened to me. I bought into the 6.8 hype several years ago and built one, an NFA one at that.

Saw that it really didnít do anything my Grendel wouldnít do and sold it. Luckily my BIL bought it so the transaction was easy other than the 10 month wait.

In hindsight I should have just sold the upper and kept the registered lower.

If all you need is a barrel and bolt I may entertain that as well. But the barrel is the most expensive part of this upper.

Iím not 100% sure Iím going to sell it but If you donít need the upper and hand guard no sense in you paying for another one.

Let me think about it a little bit.
