Updated with B5 SOPMOD such a great stock. Got it for 53$ on sale I see em for 99$ everywhere else. This gun shoots XM193 like 1.2-1.8 MOA. Definitely getting another ballistic advantage or WOA for my SPR. Very happy with the Flash hider which actually acts as a blast can too. Shot it at dusk and no flash at all. Love the Magpul SL grip. Got lucky the tolerances are super tight on everything. I did have trigger pins smooth end facing to the right and one walked a little, switched them around now smooth end is on the left side. Is this correct? Gonna have to throw my SPR scope on it and do a local 700y prs match with it. I bet my 75gr handle ads will bug hole but who knows well see.

My weird sense of humor was activated, you made a pretty good vid. Keep it up. Need more info in the video regarding rifle used and which projectile but I’ll allow it....
Posted a video on the components used and build of the rifle. The next planned video is precision loading and load development for this rifle, it'll cover projectiles and in-depth development. Let me know what you think!

Good deal. When you post a vid, include a link because I (probably many more) do not sign into anything Google and can’t subscribe to YouTube channels.

When it warms up, some buddies and I are planning to hit the 1K range with ARs. Hope to be as consistent as you seem to be. I am a fan of the CMC flat trigger also, have 6 of them.

My own 12.5" 6.5 Grendel SBR. Built around another Bartlein barrel turned out by Craddock Precision. The host lower is a 16 year old LMT SBR with my typical Vltor A5 recoil system and vintage Geissele SSA trigger.

I'm using the usual MSTN DLC coated National Match (by Young MFG) bolt carrier, cam pin, plus firing pin, with the addition of a JP 6.5 Grendel bolt. JP uses extractors contoured to the 6.5 G case head, unlike some other manufacturers out there, minimizing the problems with broken extractors.

You'll notice the LaRue Stealth 2.0 billet receiver and 10" forend combo here. Even though I pay retail at LaRue, like everyone else, I do so with the appreciation that the LaRue uppers lock up snugly on just about any and all forged lower you might have for a host. The barrel nut not impinging on the forend is a huge accuracy potential boost, too, I truly believe. The combo is remarkably light in weight, as well. At $399 retail, it doesn't hurt that much.

ThunderBeast cans on a gas gun - I know, I know, they have a LOT of back pressure, but the SLR adjustable gas block goes a long way toward alleviating that. In the end, the extreme light weight, excellent sound suppression, and above all - ACCURACY - make the TB Ultra 7 my choice for this application.

If I told you how Hornady 6.5 Grendel 123 ELD groups with just this little 8X Nightforce NX8 scope out of this 12.5" barrel, you would not believe me. And I would not blame you.
