It's shortened 6.5x47 (6.5 Creedmoor also works) case.
2750 - 2800 FPS off of a 130gr 270 bullet through an AR15.

Uses modified Grendel or 6.8 SPC mags.

SIX5, 6.8, Grendel. 270AR, 6.5x47

Curious about the pressures and how a standard AR-15 upper will hold up over time. I do, however like the idea.

How much of a difference between it & a 6.8?

About 200 fps and can hold a little larger .270 bullet.

Interesting. I'm still intrigued by the 6.8.
