Good Roundup on the .30 RAR

Murdoc has a good roundup on the .30 Remington AR.  I’m mostly of the “do we really need another AR caliber?” mindset, but I’m also not a hunter.  It would seem like the round is a good compromise between the .308, which requires a different lower receiver, and the 7.62×39 Soviet round, which they also make AR uppers for.  It’ll be interesting to see if this round gets any traction.

  1. I’d be interested to see how long it takes before someone necks this down to 6mm for high power. Or takes the larger bolt pieces–it’s got a half-inch case head!! In an AR?!–and uses them for a 6BR upper. (Right now you can get one, but it runs about $1500 for the upper alone.) Very interesting…

  2. It seemed to me the 6.5 Grendel serves as a good intermediate caliber. It’s an improvement over .223 with stellar ballistics and can be used with the same lower and upper.

    Can astute readers explain why someone should own upper+barrel assemblies for both calibers? If they shouldn’t, would that not imply the newcomer is redundant?
