Thoughts? Pretty much kills the 22 Nosler. Think I'll put one together once I can get my hands on a barrel.

Look like fun; but personally I'd rather not have a long barrel on my AR.

May hold off on the 6.5 grendel I was about to buy then.

It looks like a nice round. The key, as we've seen with the Creed, is inexpensive high-quality ammo. Time tells all, of course. It's all in how well Federal and partners execute.

I'd like to get my hands on the 100 grain bullet Federal loaded into the Fusion ammo. Can't find one that heavy anywhere.

Seems promising. I'd like to see the real-world ballistics on it from a 16" or 18" AR.

Exceptionally poor case design and typical of yet another Nuzzler brain fart. The case length is to great,to shoot any good bullets,even in ASC mags. Hint.

Pass the 22 and 6mm Grendels,due vastly superior brass(Lapooey) and vastly superior COAL latitude...if only because nothing matters more than bullets.



Hint..............

"Weight" is moot,though aero form and integrity,are not.

I wasn't expressing an "opinion",I was simply stating Facts...which those who "know" and "do" the least,reliably find upsetting.

One can even 110 Sugar in a Seex Grendel.




Tough to not love a 75 ELD Smooch at 3075fps from a 20" Krunchenticker.






Pardon them Facts.

Busheler, do you like the RDFs. Iím normally a Berger guy, but have started exploring other options since Hornady released their ELD line. Curious if you have verified BC with the noslers as well.
