That being the standard, I think the 6.5 grendell is a better bet than the 6.8 SPC. If they said less than 400m then the 6.8 SPC would be the ticket. Just my 2 cents.potential improvements in individual weapon performance in the areas of accuracy and dispersion out to 600m
Here are the velocity differences between a 14", 16", and a 20" Ko-TOnics Barrel:ehryk said:Hm, the 6.8 SPC generates 2400 fps with a 115gr bullet from a 24" bolt action test barrel, not a 14" M4. Not too impressive at all :roll: The 6.5 Grendel gives 2500 fps with a 130gr bullet or 2900 fps with a 90gr also from a 24" barrel. Much better. The main drawback is dealing with that fat PPC case. It will be interesting to see what they come up with overall.
