Long range accuracy always comes at a price unless you just flat out get real lucky.

POF and GA Precision are amongst the top of the line also there's a great builder in Colorado, Accuracy Systems Inc.

The advantage of going with the grendel is that you can stay with the AR-15 platform which is a savings over having to go with the LR308 or AR10 platform. It also saves you an awful lot of weight.

Me I went with the LR260 and put together a "Frankengun" which shoots extremely well but it does come with a heavy price weight wise.

I'm probably going to put together a 20" lighter contour barreled upper for it so it's more practical for things other than LR but I'm extremely happy with this one.

You'd be surprised though how well you can do with the Grendel's that are out there for sale off of the rack rather than going with a custom as the platform just lends itself to good accuracy as long as you start with a quality barrel and most of the more recognizable names are starting with very good quality barrels.

Re: 6.5 Grendel AR

Thinking of a 6.5 Grendel upper to put on my current 5.56 lower. Do I need anything else other than a 6.5 mag? Do I need to do anything to the 5.56 lower?

You will need a 6.5 Grendel bolt, mag, and upper. The regular 5.56 lower will be fine like it is.

Re: 6.5 Grendel AR

I love both of my Grendel's.

1. Sabre Defence 14.5"
2. Precision Firearms 24"

Awesome caliber, will be using on whitetails this year.
