I picked up a complete rifle minus lower for $279 through Primary Arms around Christmas then a $30 Anderson lower. It was my first grendel so I wanted to try the caliber before dropping a lot into it.

I just built a Larue grendel ultimate upper kit for a friend on an Aero Lower and total build minus rings and optic was right at 900 with three mags. I canít speak highly enough for Larue and their equipment.

I’ve hunted with my buddies 6.5G and it did well on hogs. I’m waiting for the 6mm ARC to gain more momentum before I mod my AR15

Great little round. So far killed everything it’s been pointed at.

Primary Arms in Houston runs them on sale periodically (have not seen them in a while).

I built mine and recommend it. Get quality barrel and trigger. Otherwise you can check out Alexander Arms.

Have Larue make one for you for $792.00...
https://www.larue.com/products/larue...-15-upper-kit/

Larue lowers for $199.00
https://www.larue.com/products/larue-billet-lowers/

You'd be hard pressed to find or build a finer rifle for $991.00

Like my Grendel a lot. Hoping to get some more kills with it. have shot several hogs and 1 coyote with it at under 100 yards and did well.
Then this past february went down to a buddies lease and shot 2 javelina back to back at 300 yards and both DRT. Using Hornady Black ELD-M

My go to caliber for hill country game and the LaRue UU kit has been great. Out the door for about $1100 and fun to build. YouTube will get you there on how to do it.

I put one together from Palmetto state. I've got less than $700 tied up in it not including optics. It'll shoot a legitimate 3/4" to 1" with Hornady Black ammo. I haven't even tried any handloads yet.

Sgrt of Arms is over there by you. Look him up he is building mine right now. I got a 10.5" for trk gun/ varmint hunting. Around $100 and he guarantees MOA accuracy.
