6.5 grendel uppers at Midway USA

I was just surfing Midway and low and behold they had a Alexander Arms 6.5 grendel A3 Overwatch upper assembly with a 24" barrel in stock for $799.99! Pushed the buy button as quick as I could, and now I have an upper on the way! Now if I could just get the lowers I ordered six months ago from Alexander Arms.... My daughter and I had hoped to both hunt antelope this year with Grendels we had built, but I am still not sure we can do it... Guess I might have to buy another lower just to get going. Looks like we may get one gun built! Next one I would like a 18" barrel.
Super excited!
Donna

Scored two lowers today from Shadow Ops Weaponry. My upper arrived today. My first build is officially underway, and the second is unofficially started as well (so many decisions)! Looks like we will be chasing antelope with a Grendel after all! Well, probably daughter will get first dibs. I am so excited.

Wife is starting her first build today. Couldn't find a AA 6.5 so we went with a .264LBC-AR by Black Hole Armory in 18" 1x9. This is going to be an experiance.

You will love the Grendel. Its a hard hitting, short or long distance deer killing machine. Good luck scoring some ammo. Ive been shooting Hornady 123 gr amax but their making the 123 and 129 gr SSTs as well but ive yet to find any available. Ive taken a nice 7 point Buck at 125 yards and ive also taken a doe at 425.

I might add that even though it would be just as much a pain, buying dies and reloading for this caliber is well worth the trouble. Your brass can be reused several times.
