Default 25 WSSM upper

Does anyone have any experience with this round, or even with uppers from Oly Arms? I'm wanting to get this now instead of a 6.5 Grendel, the ammo and the upper for both are about the same price. They both shoot 120 grs, well the 25 is up to 120, the Grendel to about 144. But the 25 has 600 fps on the Grendel with a 120 gr bullet. The 25's BC is lower but I'm never going over 300 yards. The 6.8 is slower and I just don't like it over the 25. 25-wssm.jpg

I cant speak from personal experience on Olympic Arms but I havent heard many good things about them. Try a google search for Olympic Arms reviews and see what comes up. Thats how I start most any research be it for firearms or a class.

While I do not have an Olympic Arms AR I do have a friend that has a couple. Both of his are K8 Targetmatch AR's with the 20" Bull Barrels in .223. Both of his have run flawlessly and are quite accurate.

I just need it for hunting whitetails or maybe a few mulies. I don't shoot targets and the weapon won't be under rapid fire or strict accuracy quotas, so I'm hoping to get a good upper, and I think I will. But any more info would be appreciated.

Accuracy Systems also makes several WSSM caliber uppers.They are kinda pricey.
If you get one Stock up on brass,I don't think anyone makes the WSSM caliber rifles anymore,and brass could get a little hard to find a few years from now.

Winchester still loads I think. I looked at that site and you're right they're real pricey.
