6.8 for me.

The Grendel, while a big improvement, was merely designed to be better than the 5.56.

The 6.8, on the other hand, was developed by those with boots in the sand, so to speak, to provide the proper balance between distance, accuracy, and performance necessary for combat.

Bidah (I think) was right about the Grendel having more load variety, but that's not how combat loads work. You don't get to stop and think about which load to use based on the situation. You have A load (produced in the billions) by lowest bidder.

For reloaders, the 6.5 is top dog. For ground pounders, though, the 6.8 appears best.

Of course, that's just my free opinion and I always promise to deliver what you pay for.

I am jumping into the 6.8 bandwagon,
I am currently in the process of getting the
pcs together to build one (ar15)  but
I would also like to play with the idea in the
700 platform.  for Shitz and giggles..

but if really want to reach out and touch one
then I would place a bet on the cheytac 408
Not just from a movie point of view but from
reading and future weapons episodes..
