The 6.5 Creedmoor was designed for the AR-10 platform.

The 6.5 Grendel was designed for the AR-15 platform

And the Grendel is pretty salty if the AR-10 platform is out of budget.

Regarding 6.5 Creedmoor

Fulton Armory sells Criterion Barrels, mine used to be a shooter - I miss that gun.

Forgive the ignorance, but is a 6.5 Grendel the same bolt face as the 5.56? Meaning is it just a barrel switch with a standard AR15?

No sir, it has its own boltface -- it's based on .220 Russian (7.62x39)

So other than the bolt head (I assume the rest of the bcg is standard ar15) and the barrel, is the rest of the parts all standard ar15 parts; including magazines?

Different BCG, barrel and mags. The mags are different feed lips and follower. Trajectory on the grendel and the 308 are almost the same to 1k

No the AR-10 is based off the 308. The 6.5 cm and 260 share the same size bolt face
