AAC Grendel? (Page 1 of 2)

Posted: 6/2/2023 3:14:49 PM EST
Somewhere in one of the AAC 77gr OTM threads a rough timeline was offered for 6.5 Grendel.

I think.

If I'm remembering correctly, it was about 6 weeks from a month and a half ago....???

Any updates on this?

Thanks

6 weeks, 6 months... what's a few days between friends?

I'll just start a 300blk build while I wait to see what drops when.

.. and yes, that's on you too, with those BLK prices you have.

How about 6 ARC? We need cheaper brass and cheaper ammo options, being much higher than 308 is what is keeping folks like me away from it.

Yeah... I've heard pretty good things about this, but at least on ammoseek, the ammo prices are a touch crazy for someone who doesn't reload.

J - you're doing to us what I did to one of my dogs....

He LOVED tennis balls.
One day I reached into a box - showed him a ball, and tossed it into the livingroom.
He was HAPPY.
I reached into the box, pulled out another ball and tossed it too him.
He was ECSTATIC.
I reached into the box, pulled out another and tossed it too him.
He was a little confused, but SO THRILLED.
A dozen balls later you could see the happiness dripping out of his ears as his brain melted in glee.

That's what you're doing to us.
Never Stop.
Please.

Any Grendel ammo under $1.30 a round will be excellent.

Just to be perfectly clear, will this be brass or steel case?

@Jman_JJE

is there a chance there will be an offering of 6.8spc ever?
something to compete with federal fusion would be ideal, especially since it's impossible to find.

might have to build a 6.5 Grendel if not.

It’s not something we have planned for the immediate future, but at some point we may add it to the lineup.

Thanks,

True.  I was just providing a guesstimation based on the lowest non-steel cased Grendel ammo that I have recently seen listed.

Are you able to share any information on expected projectile selections for the 6.5 Grendel loads?

Coffee, ar15s, ammo, Glock 19s

PSA is too good to me, I feel like I don’t deserve them

The only way PSA could get more of my money is a PSA tequila

I get it, we just launched 308 FMJ, today we launch 308 Black tip and next week the 308 match rounds.

We have two big ammo projects left for this year. 6.5 grendel and steel case ammo. They are my biggest projects. I will try and give a more detailed update later this week. We are moving as quickly as possible. These projects just seem to take longer than we thought.

Thanks,
Jamin

Thanks for the update Jamin. Love what you guys have done with the AAC line up. We all work for profit but I have always felt like one of Palmetto’s core missions was to ensure everyone has the ability to exercise their 2nd amendment rights. Price is simply not a valid excuse anymore. Ammo has been an issue more than a time or two in recent history so you decided to fix that also. 👍

I will patiently wait to continue to build my ammo fort.

This. Thanks for update. Consider selling this stuff in bulk at some point....250, 500, 1000rd cases.

You can make it up to us by giving us a "head start" on drop day.  


ETA...I'll echo what others have said.  I'm typically a case quantity type buyer.  
A shipping discount on case orders, or a case quantity discount would be icing on the cake.

Yeah I was about to rebarrel my two 6.5G’s because I don’t reload and the great Rona kinda killed the round. Now I’ve actually built a third 6.5G just because of PSA’s plans with the round. I’ve been VERY happy with their 6.5CM and .223, especially for the price.
