go to www.cproductsllc.com , click on magazines and then search for "6.5" to find their 25 round mag (alexander arms calls it a 24 round and I think cproductsllc is the official manufacturer that alexander arms is going to be using for their high cap mags).

or order the same exact mags from
http://www.competitionshooting.com/catalogue/category33/product43
Arne from css said they will actually bill you the $25.95 rate that cproductsllc is
giving and he should be updating the posted website price soon.

The 6.5 Grendel is now offered in AR's by:
Alexander Arms (i.e. www.midwayusa.com)
Competition Shooting Sports (www.competitionshooting.com Feel free to
call us
at 281-330-0352 if the configuration you seek is not displayed here.)
Sabre Defense (16" models only, I believe)
DPMS (not on their website yet)
www.ar15barrels.com (Definitely look into this company)

And there is a wide spread rumor that armalite may offer a 6.5 grendel in the near future.

Oops I forgot to add http://www.accuracysystemsinc.com/ar15_conversion.html to the 6.5 grendel upper vendors. I have used this company before with good results.

I guess I shouldnt use such harsh words as disaoear but the 6.5 seems to me to have more going for it than the 6.8 but the 6.8 is easier. I've had work done by Randall at ar15barrels.com and that is on my list for him to do.
