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.
Is your 6500 the same as mine?

My bad ! I actually have the 6500 on an AR15 I was shooting yesterday too. Yes, my 6500 is the same as yours and yes, I do like it. However, I have a Sightron SIIISS in 6x24x50 on the 260. It's really good !

You got some bad A## rifles ! That diamond fluted barrel sounds like a dazzler and gotta be a sight to behold! I think I need to find someone who wants my plain jane 300 ACC Blackout upper so I can get a better one. With diamond flutes.....

Re: Any cal. missing?

I have a 6mmAR that is a wildcat, with all necessary info, upgrades available from Richard Whitely(check out the 6BR site). It's a 6.5 Grendal case that's simply run through a dye. Just add the upper and the modified magazine and it feeds perfectly through a standard AR15 lower. Velocity is within 100FPS of the 6BR and it performs very well. I get consistent sub 2" groups at 500 yards with mine.

264WM, is that a cerakote "paint" job? Looks boss! I've looked at the 6AR web site thinking the 6AR turbo should be awesome. The 6AR is. Getting 2 " groups at 500 yards? Fantastic! Tell me more about your build.
