Re: ar-15 caliber

I shoot an Alexander Arms 6.5 Grendel with a 24" Schillen barrel on an AR lower I built that will drill Sierra 80gr HP's into one ragged hole at 3200fps.......hits coyotes with authority.

Re: ar-15 caliber

The 6.5 Grendel seems like the logical choice, with factory ammo and all. The dtec is very similar to the 22 PDK. I got mine from White Oak Armarmet a few years ago and love it. It's 6.8 necked down and improved and will get 3700+ with a 50gr and 3500+ with a 68gr bthp in a 20 inch upper. It's very accurate and anchors coyotes with athuority. I use a 2.5-10 IOR scope, on low for calling and turn it up and dial in for the long ones. It is a very fun rig.

Looks like the bolt is larger than the standard AR bolt. (I would think it would have to be).

Thanks for the info.
