I was in full agreement up until this statement....By average, the 6.5 Creed is only about 300 fps faster than the Grendel. I don't know if I'd call that "quite a bit more balls".
The main difference is this....
6.5 Grendel - AR15 frame, tons of accessories, almost all accessories and parts that will fit in/on a regular AR15.
6.5 Creedmooor - AR10 frame, not as many aftermarket parts or support, and is heavier and bulkier.
These are the main differences in chambering an AR style weapon in the 6.5G vs 6.5 Creed. Either direction will be a good one, and both will excel at serving their purposes when used in their perspective ranges. And both calibers will excel over a .308 Win / 7.62 round....And I am a big .308 fan, but the truth is the truth, and facts are facts.
