5-600 combat effective range. Maybe a little more if you practice your holdovers, and put a 20 moa mount under your optic. Really depends more on your abilities at longer ranges. And practice, practice, practice . Mine with a 16" barrel will ring the 24" gong at 500 all day long, with 90% inside the 12" center from the bench. This is with a 6x hunting tube, not one of my varmit scopes....

The 6.5 grendle is a great long range rd but it really needs a 24" barrel to reach its potential. Really looses a lot of vel with shorter barrels, and velocity is what this rounds all about. It does shoot pretty flat 0-200 yds. Basicly no drop if zeroed at 100, so dead on the crosshairs.

I do have a 6.5 that I varmit with. Just its a MUCH heavier gun than a dmr rifle. App 14 lbs with the glass mounted and a 10 rd mag. Not a fair comparison. If you do decide to go 6.5, take a look at black hole weapondry. They make the best barrel for precision shooting that I have found. They offer a lot of dmr type options....

Ya I mean even 300-400 tops would be fine on it. I have my 30-06 for everything else past that.

Well I guess that is that. I too was considering a 6.8 SPC for my next AR, but not anymore. I was trying to stay away from the AR-10 frame and stick with a AR-15 compatible gun. I guess it will be a 243 AR for my next tax refund. I love that round and reload for it, so no new dies and cases. It will be a good complement to my bolt action 243, now the question is what barrel length?
