I would have preferred the 6.5 Grendal to the 6.8

Both in in the same platform.

The ballistics of the 6.5 Grendal looked better
for both short and very long range.

It seemed the 6.5 Grendal had better
terminal velocity at 1000 meters than the .308

that seems to me to be the problem, and mr. kalishnikov did a better job of solving it than mr. stoner. most soldiers don’t need a 1,000 meter sniper rifle. they need a compact automatic rifle that works in close combat.
