I am a new member and even though some would call me an old-timer I am new to rifle shooting, have spent all my time involved with pistols and shotguns. (Ret LEO)
I am in the market for an AR type rifle to be used mainly for bench shooting, varmint and small game and SHTF.
After much research, i think I have found the cartridge for me. The 6.5 Grendel falls between the .223 and the .308 and while closer to the .308 have less recoil (about 1/2 from what I read).
I have looked at offering from Alexander Arms and Sabre Defense, both completed firearms and separate uppers and lowers.
Looking for opinions on the 6.5 Grendel in a suitable AR configuration. Comments and suggestions welcome
