    Hey,
    I’m one of the guys that was just CREEPILY OBSESSED w/my old man’s firearms that were mostly of a “tactically utilized” design and definitely, recently, even now when i go there, he and ANY and/or ALL of my US SOF community friends from either high school OR the five years doing tactically focused quasi-PSD/other half-FID (or really, at TITAN/L-3, the firm we were w/ that was outsourced by them as an umbrella just did the lower level DoD/DoJ contracts in non-combat theaters like Baja, CA or Mexico’s Rio Grande AO). Many of these friends were old salts, many were NSW EOD or West Coast frogs that left early to do IC work alongside the difficult friend I could be back to them as I was a kid thinking I could tour doing music all my life. 9/11 happened, they joined diff commands….several were later highly renowned ODA vets from the JAWBREAKER days of OEF, some were just 11Bs and that would go on to do RIP and become a “Hooah” for the 75th, and any OTHERS that ended up at Bragg (esp w/USASOC or INSCOM, I was never really “read-in” but I had a decently fair idea of what units they were with).
    POINT OF ALL THIS IS: Why is this new amazing heavier grain round, who’ll be used by friends I have working as high end IC alongside Triple Canopy, Grumman, Tapestry, Academi, etc in what’s now A VERY DIFFERENT A.O than it was in 2007 (Mex and Baja would drag our little small elements in RATTLR—which was a small sub org under TITAN standing for Rapid Asymmetrically Tactical/Training and Lead Response teams—into MASSIVE and ridiculously intense gunfights before training courses we’d attend would focus on vehicular CQB!).
    Our best two AR platforms were a DPMS (full upper/lower) cheap, off the shelf AR-15 “Panther” 5.56 (luckily stocked every op w/77gr Black Hills but still…Los Zetas in Baja had PKMs, sawed off shotguns they’d fire ten ft away, Uzis, etc etc, plus body armor that nearly bested ours) but the SR-25 KAC customs we had were the first gen iteration of what we see as the EC/ACC customized ISR version in a 14.5″ platform now. It’s still rare, but I recall “Boon” form Benghazi’s Consulate Attack saying that was a rifle of choice for him.
    The 7.62NATO out of such a short “battle carbine” (esp if it’s integrally suppressed with NON subsonic ammo? yeah…we weren’t too sure about this) but it worked. Every threat dealt w/by one of these systems (mine was not the ISR but instead I personally bought a SUREFIRE SOCOM K can and just went w/something easy that changed the report ENOUGH…).
    I get out, become a author based on requests I received from numerous families of RATTLR teammates I’d known since I was in high school (I was in my mid 30s when I lost my last teammate in a random fight with ten on thirty, some using full autos in an enclosed space, in Belize). So I wrote a book, called “One Riot/One Ranger: The Story of The Warriors of Baja” (the point of the story touched on A–We faced actual Hezbollah advisory teams that were there WITH ACTUAL QUDS FORCE ELEMENTS AS WELL….and this was in LA PAZ, MONTERREY, NUEVO LAREDO, etc….not El Salvador or some shit!! The Sinaloan DTOs who had paid millions of $$ for fmr veterans and other folks in Caracas who either were GRU trained Bolivian mercenaries–which I never encountered but heard they were bad—but, the WORST, was those who got paid to bring up IRGC trainers I guess. We had about a dozen plus DFEs (or, if you were in OUR truck–as I was our unofficial ‘terp and “trunk monkey” in the back of the SUV—they’d refer to ’em as “walk ups”, basically Zetas or other VEO/DTO elements or individuals affiliated w/said groups that would try to just straight light up vehicles w/VIP type appearances to them lol.). Of the dozen plus DFEs, my mentor at TITAN’s RATTLR teams was ALSO a fmr Special Mission veteran who had me change to a bigger caliber battle “carbine” (as I said, 14.5″ actually was great for terminal ballistics at the ranges of the threats we dealt with and they got the job done. I know the US Army and SOCOM are going to the Creedmoor, but I’d NEVER choose some 18″ to 24″ barrel 6.5CM platform just because of this inhuman level accuracy it can provide on tap!….I am no SBR guy either, but the URGI Geiselle SF little guy they have out there that a lot of SMUs are using is 5.56mm, I believe, and the Geiselle URGI would’ve been great but with a 300 HAM’R??? OR a 6.5 Grendel? I believe it would have been so much more efficient). Many of the “Hez” as we referred to those we’d so RARELY, AND DO A BLOW OUT WITH, MAINLY, IMHO, JUST OUT OF A BLIND-LUCK-KINDA DEAL….BUT MY POINT IS THEY HAD OUR CURRENT GEN LEVEL II OR III PLATING….MOST DTO FELLAS DIDN’T ROCK VESTS. THESE WERE FMR IRGC VETS WHO’D FOUGHT THE IRAQIS IN THE 80s!!!!!!
    I guess, if we are gonna have stories about how great Creedmoor loads are getting and how SOCOM is adopting ’em on Soldier Systems (and since I’m not a mil vet etc….my exp is more LE tactical organizational-based etc and from mainly my time growing up in Thousand Oaks near LA w/my uncle, a SWAT officer), but if Soldier Systems could, w/all the contacts available to everyone there (writers wise mainly) that are covering this whole new 6.5 changeover story, I’d LOVE TO HEAR what those at SOF like my mentor, and his former Troop could do to have MORE access to either the already-being-released 6.8 GP (isn’t that what they decided for non-7.62 NATO rifles? If it’s a .308 type, then 6.5 CM w/a longer barrel, and if SBR, sticking to the 300BLK—again, the advise I got was it’s overrated….not that they don’t LOVE the round in the LMT CSWs they use these days HOWEVER? you know what I mean?? BUT!!! Bill Wilson, a true gentleman and genius tinkerer w/truly ruthless rounds as of late, no to mention the Tactical Recon 7.62 they released was being quietly placed next to a few LaRues and KAC SR-25/Mk 11 trunks and did EXCEPTIONALLY well in the TICs they got in where they had zero time to get prepped. MY QUESTION IS THIS: THE ONE MOST SEASONED TIER 1 FMR SMU OPERATOR SAID HE’S NOT USING 300 BLK, AND THE CREEDMOOR IS ONLY FOR HIS BOLT GUNS AND ONE OF HIS NEW DRD TACTICAL PLATFORMS….OTHERWISE HE HAS SPOKEN W/A MUTUAL FRIEND OF BOTH OF OURS (OWNER OF VTAC AND ALSO LEGENDARY “GREEN” MEMBER, MR. KYLE LAMB….MOST KIDS IDOLIZED RAMBO OR THE MATRIX GUY….I IDOLIZED THIS GENTLEMAN), AND THE CONCLUSION WAS THAT A) THE 6.5 GRENDEL DOESN’T DO EVERYTHING THE 6.5CM DOES WITH THOSE LONGER BARREL LENGTHS, BUT IF YOU WANNA STAY UNDER 16″, BUT KEEP THOSE OPTIMAL EFFECTS OF HAVING A 14.5 OR 14.7″ BATTLE CARBINE?? WHY NOT HAVE THOSE AT SOCOM CHOOSE THE GRENDEL? OR????

    NOW HERE’S THE REAL QUESTION IF ANYONE HERE WANTS TO TRY IT OUT…
    I WENT TO RANGE 37 AT BRAGG AS THEY FINISHED THE MCX II TESTING AFTER THE ISSUES NEEDING FIXING W/THAT NOT SO GREAT FIRST MCX. HONESTLY, I’M NOT A HUGE SIG FAN FOR AR’S EXCEPT THE .308. THE VIRTUS/MCX LOOK, FEEL, RECOIL, THE GREAT MODULARITY—SURE–BUT TO GO TO X39 YOU DON’T JUST FLIP ONE SWITCH AND YOU CAN USE SOVIET AMMO! AND SUPPRESSED W/ THE SIG CAN, IT’S GREAT W/300BLK BUT ONLY W/THAT….
    WE ALL WENT AND MET BILL WILSON NOT LONG AGO, AND FINALLY, THE EXCITEMENT HE’D BUILT IN US WAS SHOWN…THE 300 HAM’R (NO, NOT THE 458 HAM’R OR SOCOM WHICH EVERY SAYS IT’S TOO SIMILAR TO). THE 300 BLK IS GREAT AT THUMPING QUIETLY AT FAIRLY DECENT RANGES, THOUGH ONT THE BIGGEST “TACK DRIVER” (NOT A CM LOL JK)
    WHY NOT TAKE REMINGTON’S NEW ROUND IN 6.5 AND MAKE A GRENDEL SIMILAR TO HIS 300 HAM’R WHICH FITS INTO A 5.56MM MAGAZINE, BUT I BELIEVE IT HELD FIVE TO TEN MORE THAN THE 458 SOCOM…THESE ARE ELEPHANT SLUGS THAT EVEN W/MY K CAN??? WEREN’T TOO SHABBY ON NOISE. THEY WERE DESIGNED AND TAILOR MADE HOG KILLERS, OBVIOUSLY, BUT AS MANY OF OUR MOST SEASONED USASOC WILL I BET RECENTLY, HOG AMMO HAS PEAKED INTEREST IN THE AF/PAK-BOUND GUYS FOR ANY CARTRIDGE LIKE THE 300 HAM’R “CONTROLLED CHAOS” THAT, WHEN NOT USING WHATEVER….THE M855A1….THIS WOULD BE PUTTING A .308 LEVEL DEATH DEALING DM RIFLE IN YOUR HAND THAT FLIES LIKE THE WIND (‘METERED IT!! IT’S INSANE…AND AT 130-135″ GR??? IT’S INSANE!!!). SO MUCH SO, HE SPOKE TO HIS TROOP CMDR AND IS VERY VERY QUIETLY BRINGING THESE INSTEAD OF THE CREEDMOORS THAT OTHERS ARE TRYING NOW…..HIS TROOP MATES HAVE LOADED LARUE TACTICAL OBRs W/CMs & ARE HOPING FOR ALL THEY’VE BEEN TOLD….BUT SO FAR, HERE IN SC WHERE HE AND I LIVE FOR JUST A FEW MONTHS UNTIL HE MOVES BACK ON BASE (LONG STORY THERE)…..BUT HE SHOWED ME ON SEVERAL BEEF SHOULDERS AND THE 300BLK, THE 6MM CM, 6.5 CM, AND ONE OTHER.
    Plus, one thing to me that should stick out more than anything is that if the 7.62×39 has similarities (or if the 6.8 SPC and it’s mag) are related to the Grendel and needed to use it, then those SOF guys forced to be using these new P320s (which i kinda DO like as a sidearm, though I’m a CZ guy personally), and now SIG has dominated the DoD solicited gigs next to HK (w/their 417 being rebooted as the CSASS, and from what I hear from the Bragg fellas, not nearly as lightweight or quick as advertised….and the shape and optic, as nice as they are, make it as a whole, just as unwieldy as a maneuverable 7.62 NATO platform as any other)…..so now we got the MCX II, the P320 (both have had issues ALREADY at this point? not great imho) and then some kidna SDMR now too??? IDK….I shoot w/a PSA fella here in Bluffton who worked at Palmetto State, and he HONESTLY had one of these early new Barrett REC10s and THAT heavy mofo was ten times less unwieldy than the CSASS! THEN, the REPR II, the LMT MWS (the UK SOF DMR which, imho, and w/my lack of exp, seemed to move as fast as a 16″ just BARELY a few ounces heavier AR-15!! And it was A TACK DRIVER with it’s 7.62 factory rounds AND it’s not-super-hot-shit barrel that was just as short as the KAC’s custom 14.5″ ones we tried…but again, both lost in the CSASS competition like Remington R10 did which I also thought was strange. Anyway….I like the .308 and 7.62, but if there’s a way to see if the military has plans for the Grnedel I’d love to know!Yet it and the lightweight (though lacking a piston, unlike the 416/17, as a DI it lost)

    P.S If no article on the 6.5 Grendel being adopted for mil use is possible as they’ve, let’s say, already said the 6.8 and 6.5CM are the OFFICIALLY (no going back deals) chosen round, thats ok….BUT, a gent on our team used those first FUTUREWEAPON TV show advertised 6.8 SPC FIRST GEN REPR, by LWRC actually…the crappy one!! That’s right! As an DM platform (side note) it was BRUTALLY SATISFYING ACTUALLY! He had some no-name company suppressor on it, but it was lighter than titanium it felt like (sorry for my grammar and bad spelling, lack of caps or too many caps…i’ve drank AND as an SME/Ebook author who just got optioned for a screenplay? It’s liberating to say “bleh…who cares…someone complains, tell em to eat a bowl of dicks!”….Anyways, the first REPR worked actually good. So much so that I realize now that we’re heading in that direction, I should get more LWRC/I products as I always loved the lood of the M6A1, OR, better yet, this amazingly new modular REPR II that supposedly is easier to shoot than our US Army CSASS upgraded M110A1s!!
