6.5 grendel & 6.8 spc in a contender

Hey guys, i'm thinking of a new barrel for my contender and was wanting to stay with factory round. I see several of the custom barrel makers offer a 7.62x39 in a contender but only offer the grendel in an encore. Is there that much pressure difference? Is it not possible. The other option I was thinking about is the 6.8. anybody running one in a contender? Thanks!
Jared

    Mr LINK.

    Call JD and he will tell you what you can and can't do in a contender. I have a couple of his barrels and he uses Shilen blanks, and they SHOOT.
    I took an antelope at 429yds with a Contender in .338 JDJ and a 180gr. NBT.
