So I recently decided that I’d like to upgrade my 5.56 ar with the better ballistics of 6.5 grendel. The only problem is that I have little experience with ar uppers and don’t really know what I should be looking for. I really just want to replace my current upper which has an a2 sight block and doesn’t have free float hand guards and also try out a different caliber and maybe some long range shooting but most of my shooting will probably be 300 yards or less. i Also I have a budget of about $500. Any recomendations?
Bear Creek Arsenal makes some nice Grendel uppers. I have 2 of their barrels and bolts I built the rest.
I agree with @shooterrex . Bear Creek Arsenal makes good, inexpensive parts. They are not all great, but they do have good customer service. I have one barrel and a complete upper from them.
6.5 Grendel is a great caliber. It is near impossible to find ammo for it right now. It’s not the only one, but it is one of the worst at the moment.
I think they quit making it.lol
Bear Creek Arsenal is who I would recommend for the budget you have planned.
