The 6.5 Grendel round is a popular alternative caliber for AR-15 platform owners who want to increase long distance hunting or target shooting performance compared to .223 Remington or 5.56 NATO. Available in 18″ length with either HBAR contour or the lighter Hybrid contour, and 22″ in HBAR contour.

Chambers are finished to accommodate Type II bolts (with a .136 recess), but barrels should still be headspaced and installed by a qualified gunsmith. Each barrel comes with a proprietary barrel extension incorporating a finer thread pitch to allow for greater chamber wall thickness to accommodate the 6.5 Grendel’s higher pressure for added reliability and safety.

Optional factory headspaced JP Enterprises bolt/barrel combination available.
