The General Purpose Off Duty AR: Which caliber?

Longeye ·
Most of us are familiar at some level with the AR FOW. At this point the AR has replaced the various milsurp bolt rifles as the preferred platform to build off of, hunt with, train with, etc. There is a distinct difference between a work gun and a off duty piece. The off duty piece is the one we want to carry when we are out getting our mind right. This thread is geared towards the off duty AR. Given that a small frame AR can be assembled into a very light, trim carbine with things like...

Buffer for 18" Rifle Length Gas System/Carbine Extension

WESBnTenn ·
I've picked an OEM BCM upper with 18" barrel and LaRue floating rail with a pinned gas block. This was a BCM built upper, it's a few years old but looks unused. I want to put in on an LMT carbine lower that I've got. I'm unsure which buffer would be appropriate. An H3? I'd appreciate an informed suggestion. (My search didn't turn up anything) TIA

My parts and pieces are all in. I dropped a 16" Bison Armory Recon Barrel in a slick side upper with a KMR-A 13 tube. Bolt is the Stag 6.8, CMT carrier. I used a BCM gas block, and a SF FA7.62SS suppressor adaptor. My can misses the KMR-A by .1" which is perfect. I currently have a Leupold 2-7x33mm mounted in a Larue LT-104. All breakin shots have been on steel to date. This thing is headed for TX to kill pigs MCLMM style.

I've had a fascination with 6.5 Grendel for some time and I don't know why, really. Kind of flat shooting with good mid to semi-long (long for me) range ballistics from what I've been able to determine. There is cheap Russian blasting/informal range day ammo available. I believe there is good quality accurate/precision ammo as well. Now there is 6.5 Grendel II, but I haven't researched the differences yet. I want to know more about the round but haven't found the time to really look deeply...

I thought 6.5 needed an AR10 receiver? I know its certainly capable, Mark LaRue took an elk with one at like 400m. The .224 Valkyrie is making some noise as well in the market. For me, Mlok fore end, either a CTR or fixed MOE stock, probably a 2.5-10x with BUIS, both folding. Caliber... probably 6.8, but I'd be looking hard at the 224 once more is known about it. SSA trigger. Around here, deer run small, any of the rounds will do the job.

6.8 has the best choice of defensive & hunting ammo. If one is using the TTSX, the .300 BLK works well. 6.5G gives a bit more range, but .224V is even better for punching paper at distance. I'd also be inclined to just stick with 5.56 mm bonded or all copper loads and call it a day...

I think now that you bring it up my interest first started when I found that with basically just a BCG and upper swap on my 5.56 lower I could have a 2 caliber “system”.

I reload and have suppressors. For me: 5.56: for training (identical setup to the 300blk AR). 300blk: suppressed, and SBR'd for Home/ hunting etc. (110 grain TSX). I have a LMT AR10 with a 308 and 6.5CM barrels if I want to reach out and touch something.

Re: The General Purpose Off Duty AR: Which caliber?

Another option: get an LMT MRP upper. I have a 22lr, 5.56 and 300blk barrel that uses the same upper, same optics etc. Just turn 2 torx screws (remove barrel and use a new bolt). It saves a little money if you don't want to keep buying expnsive optics/lights etc.

I'm with Doc on this one. Unless there is a need for something different, I would stick with 5.56mm. Everything you need the gun to do, can be done with 5.56mm using the appropriate ammunition. Choose a lightweight, precision barrel, lightweight handguard and stock, and something like a Short Dot, and call it a day. Regards. Mark

Re: The General Purpose Off Duty AR: Which caliber?

I was reading conflicting stuff on the Grendel receiver size years back and hadn't had a reason to look again. I hunt with a 7x57mm and my theoretical replacement would still probably be a bolt gun. I don't have a ton of cash and can't get multiple new calibers. Any spare AR would have to fill as many roles as possible. 6.5 or 6.8 still aren't common or cheap, where a Ruger GSR in .308 would fill multiple offduty options. An AR would be cheaper to assemble part by part though.

"Consider its role as replacing the ,,, .30-30 lever rifle that everyone shoots their deer and hogs with." I think of the AR as a modern Win. 94. Sounds like you are going for Cooper Scoutish AR. The Grendel is interesting but I don't know if it is worth trading off a 5.56 with a 1/7 twist and its ability to use solid copper bullets, heavy and light bullets. With the right bullet for the job and the same placement I'm betting it'll be just as dead with either the 6.5 or .224 bullet. It'll be...

Part of what is driving this is my realization of how light, trim and svelte the AR is with a Gov't profile barrel and a KMR-A handguard. It puts my Winchester Featherweight Compact to shame, as well as my former Steyr Scout Rifle. I just can't develop any love for lever actions, despite the excellent work that 22F and the Hill Bros. are doing with their respective cowboy guns. It may be Luddite of me, but I want a little more bullet mass and diameter than 5.56 offers for dedicated woods...

I have a “few” 5.56mm guns and a couple .300Blk guns. I have taken deer with both flavors, though only one with the Blackout. It did considerably more damage than the 5.56mm has done in the past using a 125gr SST handload. But none of the deer survived either caliber. The .300Blk works with cast bullets, suppresses nicely, and blows up 5.56 guns if someone accidently sticks a big bullet in a little hole. I never take both flavors to the range at the same time Two guys I know have rifles in...
