    I am thinking of putting together an AR for myself in 6.5 Grendel. Anyone know what AR parts that would have to be specific to the 6.5 caliber? For instance te barrel would have to be 6.5 Gendal specific, but what about the bolt carrier group..etc? Also any advice on the actual build woukd be appreciated. I am looking at 16" barrel heavy profile with a free floated hanguard. Any part source suggestion would also be welcomed.
    Thanks!

    I believe the actual bolt needs to be for a 7.62x39 not 5.56. I am working on piecing together a 6.5 upper myself at the moment.

    Besides the barrel, you need a 6.5G bolt (not the whole carrier) and mags. If you are running a threaded barrel, it will need a larger muzzle device too

    You Mean 6.8 SPC or 6.5 Grendel?
