If you had these and wanted maybe one more to fit in, what would your cal. thoughts be and why? Just real curious as I don't think you can have too many ARs !
How about DPMS LR338 Federal great round.

Re: Any cal. missing?

Went out yesterday in a wind storm and still shot my AR10 in 260. Could not hardly believe the results. Even in the blow, groups off the bench went .231 and .205 ! Not as good prone, but I haven't shot prone in way too many years. But still, they largest was only .774 at 100 yds. Not bad for an old coot. Yep, ARs be accurate! Oh, and I didn't didn't change aim point, just shot it. Wind had ZERO effect on the 142 Sierras! I'm still amazed....

6.5's rule in the wind. My 264wm with 30" barrel shoots tight groups at 132 yards with 95gr Vmax and 100gr hp and 100gr BT. In the wind also

Re: Any cal. missing?

They got my attention ! I've shot many cal. and this 6.5 amazed me with it's wind bucking ability. Course, it's only 100 yds. I'm going to my first ever 1000 yd. match soon and where it is there's a lot of conditions to deal with. I haven't shot past 300 yds. so the experienced shooters ought to have a good laugh on me. Maybe not.
I'm also having an AR15 upper built in 6.5 Grendel. Can't find a disparaging word about it anywhere. Kinda like a short version of the 260, only maybe better.
Oh, I failed to mention that I was shooting with a suppressor ! The can really helps a lot! Might also mention it has a 6500 on it.
