When you get it put together I'll test it for you if you like.I see! I thought PPC brass was rare and expensive.
You'd need to ask somebody that knows about ARs about the spring. I've still never had one or even looked at one closely, much less understand the nuances.
I just rummaged around and found a quart jar full of 68 gr Corbin 6mm HPs.
A neigbor's kid just ran over his CZ527 7.62x39 carbine and bent the barrel and broke the stock. He sold it cheap. So, I have an action. The stock can be repaired, have 1-12 barrel, extra rings? yes. Scope? 6-18 Redfield. Reamer rental is $40. Why not have another small 6mm for forty bucks?
That's the way the mind of a gunjunky works.
Supposedly the Grendel bolt and correct barrel is all you need.thinking the 6.5 grendel is the correct bolt carrier group, would the recoil spring need to be changed?
Well if it doesn't fit in the AR-15 platform, the DoD bought a mistake, Barrett has been building the wrong thing under contract, and Hornady submitted a cartridge to SAAMI for no reason.If I am understanding this correctly this new cartridge will function on the AR15 platform? Who makes the upper for it? Will it fit a DPMS spec lower? Yes that is kind of pricey for ammo and I have not really seen any of it on the local sporting goods stores shelves.
When starting a new thread that is designed to be imformative and create some good conversation I often use youtube video's, my assumption is that people can open and watch them which if your internet service sucks may not be possible, that even if they do have high speed internet that they will watch it before going further and commenting on the subject or at least skim the responses for information before asking written questions, silly me...Well if it doesn't fit in the AR-15 platform, the DoD bought a mistake, Barrett has been building the wrong thing under contract, and Hornady submitted a cartridge to SAAMI for no reason.
Several already are selling uppers, it's stated in the videos published on Hornady's YouTube channel, and several websites have articles about it.
There's no question about the quality of Lapua brass, or its cost. Over at MDWS, Bruce's line of 'fat cat' cartridges were originally based on the 6.5x47 Lapua case. Neck reaming and turning was necessary for most of them, but it was superb brass (I've been using the same 100 7mm Valkyrie cases for 5 years). That didn't stop Bruce from continuing to find an alternative. LC brass works but is just as much work to form and has less capacity. But now we are using 6mm Dasher brass, which eliminates most of the forming issues we had with Lapua, and so far it seems to be just as long lived.KB-- maybe you miss my meaning. The ARC offers an alternative to buck each brass and I'd like to know if Lapua brass is worth the extra 25%.
The best way to do that is shoot groups from both makes of brass from the same rifle.
