    6.5cal barrel

    Looking for a barrel for my 6.5 grendel that's heavier profile than the Howa mini sporter.

    Anything out there?

    Yeah I have a short trueflite ultra match heavy profile 1-8" chambered in grendel that is a very good shooter with 123gr, what action are you fitting it up to?

    Ill reply here as here as I cant post pics in P/M.

    Its a lightly used 14.5" which technically was the best all round length for the Grendel with an overbarrel suppressor, it got 2450fps with 123gr Scenars and BM8208.
    It was a lazer on my CZ 527 which I sold off as a 6ppc. The thread is a 25x1.25 and the Howa mini has a 22x1mm so there is enough meat to rethread without shortening. It will need the bolt face recess cut deeper for the Howa and the chamber will have to be pushed forward the same amount.

    It has a 25.4mm knox 35mm long that then tapers to 21.85mm at the muzzle which is threaded in M14x.
    I had intended to put it on my Howa mini if I cooked the factory lightweight stainless one but I cant see that happening any time soon and it shoots very well.
