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.

Life's journey is not to arrive at the grave safely in a well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, totally worn out, shouting.......holy kaka.....What a Ride!

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.

Thank you "American Rifleman"

They reported a 90 gr at 2700 fps MV. I didn't see where Federal reported that. Instead they reported "inches of drop". bang

If a guy doesn't mind a brass catcher on his rifle, this looks pretty interesting.

I know a few guys that have spun up a barrel or two for bolt guns and are really liking it a lot.

Wonder if Federal is making the brass any better for us that reload. Usually their brass is soft and primer pockets expand after just a few rounds. I do like the idea of finally a factory 22 cal round for the heavy 22 bullets.

Seems the only reason to build a bolt gun in it, is to create more barrel life over the venerable .22-250
