6.5 Grendel Build
 
Been gathering parts for this thing for the past couple month, should be finished this next week or so. Finally got the barrel. It's a Satern chambered in 6.5 grendel not .264LBC, barrel is a 24". I think later on, I'm going to chop 2"-4" off and flute the rest of the barrel. Going to put a 15" rail and either a UBR or a PRS

Looking good so far.

You gotta give us a range report when you are done.

xpbprox 07-08-2012 12:47 PM

Thanks.

Got the tail for it 15" Troy
Still need to get the bolt carrier, FA, dust cover, barrel nut, and a PRS

That thing is a beast.

xpbprox 07-20-2012 8:04 AM

Thanks man, I'm getting paid today and will be ordering my stock.
I'm still waiting for a few parts from RRA: barrel nut, dust cover, forward assist, buffer, spring.

Bolt carrier is a FA BCM

GunToter925 07-21-2012 6:57 AM

Look forward to seeing it complete.

Your build is looking good. I am interested in starting a Grendel build so I really look forward for a range report. How long was the wait on the Barrel?

xpbprox 07-22-2012 6:12 AM

Well I didn't want to wait and since Satern no longer makes their barrels in 6.5 I went ahead and got a used barrel with 400 rounds down it
Satern makes their barrels in .264 LBC now, there's only a few manufactures sho still make true Grendel barrels due to copyrights or patents whatever theyre called.

Looking good so far.Keep us updated.

I was going to build but I took your route and bought used. I was told a 9 month wait for a barrel.:confused: I just picked up a Grendel Upper from a fellow Calgunner. Where are you planning to shoot it and what kind of glass are you thinking of getting?

xpbprox 07-26-2012 6:42 AM

There's a range out in north east county that's the guys from ares armor invited me too. It's a 1k range and I heard them say that they can even bump a few hundred more if they move back.

I'm not really sure about optics but I'm thinking no further magnification than 14x

Looks clean so far, excited for the finished product!

DeCloaK 08-06-2012 11:03 PM

So did you finish this beast yet?

I hope you have one of Saterns cut rifled barrels and it doesn't need to have the chamber touched up. I have a 20" cut rifled barrel from them and I had to send it back because of issues chambering any ammo. I made sure my brass was resized to minimum specs and it would still give me issues. Anyway after getting it back all I can say is it shoots great now. I am still working up loads but I do have this picture of my crappy shooting skills. What can I say but it was close to 90 degrees with light winds maybe gusting to 12 mph. This was 5 shots at 100 yards.

Nice group man.


Okay so money got spent on other things like it always does but the stock should be here from exile machine tomorrow. I have everything else but that! And magazines and ammunition and an optic and a bi-pod and $$$$$$

Similar to my build and I love it. You have a better barrel so I know you will love it also. I should have taken a picture but my last 4 shots were touching when I sighted the thing in using Hornady 123 grain amax

That's exactly what it is. Only difference is the actuall boot face and barrel!
The AR platform is a Lego, you can chamber it in over 50 calibers

xpbprox 12-15-2012 10:59 AM

OKAY! update, I funtion tested it last week. Fired 2 rounds, but I couldn't cycle it becuase I didn't have any mags.

Just ordered the Vortex Viper PST 6-24x50 for it. It should be here Thursday, I'll post pics when it comes in. I still need to pick out some rings for it

Really? Didn't know that. Who are those makers (if you know).

I was hoping I could just call somebody like W.O.A. or W.O.P. and order one.

xpbprox 12-16-2012 8:55 PM

I used to know but I forgot
I think it's
