I wish the shorter barreled uppers would come back. I had one located right before SH and then the seller dissappeared.

Ive got 650 123 gr SSTs and brass but cant find the right powder and a press. At least i got what i got. Picked a bad time to get into reloading.

Re: 6.5 grendel uppers at Midway USA

Finished building the gun except for mounting scope and bipod. I have two boxes of A-Max in hand and five boxes of Wolff coming. I am trying to figure out what kind of scope base to put on "our" gun now, and am not posting photos until after I get the scope on and test it out. Will be putting a Zeiss Conquest 4-14x50 on it. Same situation for bipod - gotta figure out what kind and how to mount. It is the standard AA carbon fiber handguard with two studs, so I guess it will be okay to mount to the extra stud? So excited - plus we got all the tags we wanted for antelope in Wyoming! Desperate for some good hunting rounds. Will keep looking!
I agree about reloading. I reload for our .270's, but have not made the investment to get dies and brass and bullets for the 6.5 yet.

Ive been holding out for the XBR but cant seem to find any. I picked up some Winchester powder that I used on my 308 but I wasnt sure on my Grendel. Thanks for the info, I didnt know I could use the leverevolution. How about Superformance powder?

Ive got the Nikon Buckmaster 6-18-40 BDC on mine but the Zeiss should work well
