I won a receiver set from Lone Star Armory in May 2017, and it has been collecting dust in the gun room up to this point, while I've contemplated what cartridge to use for the build. I've since decided on the 6.5 Grendel since I've already got a 6.8 SPC and a few .223 Rem's.
I plan to use it for punching paper out for 400 yards or so for the majority of the time, but may also use it for 3 gun some day, and the occasional varmint hunt.
All that said - where do I start with barrel length & twist? The 18in length and 1:8 sounds great at first, but is there that much of an advantage to move up to a longer barrel?
This will be my first 6.5, so it's all Greek to me at this point. Appreciate any advice you can throw my way!
