    Howdy Gang,
    Well, First things first! I have way to much time on my hands and little to no money. The only good thing about having to much time is: I surf for bargins and it is true you can find them when you look hard! I bought my 6.5 Grendel Poly Barrel and bolt for $135.00 to my door, this barrel that I bought has had 30 rounds threw it. I have only shot the Grendel 10 shots and it is going to be a Tac driver!gun)
    I also stole my Lilja 260 Ackley IMP barrel, I got more New Redding bushing dies and reg. Redding dies., if I would of went to Mid Way and bought the Redding die sets that I got, the barrel would of been free Plus I got 50 brand new 260 Rem cases.
    So here it is: which of the 2 will prerform better, I am looking for distance and
    the trajectory of the 2.
    I would be great full for any help!
    Greg

    The way you say bolt and barrel leads me to believe the Grendel is in the AR platform. Is the 260 for an the AR10?

    I dont think it could be at the neck angle on the AI would not feed well in an auto loader at all.

    THe 260 will have a lot more speed

    What will be the purpose of the rifle? What other than barrels do you already have? Your kind of comparing apples to oranges.
