I have been getting the "Grendel Bug", may have to get a fix for it, probably in a 22 or 24" upper (Yes sadly for an AR platform), and although my experience with the customer service out at AA has left me disappointed as a customer, I have got to give them an applaud for pushing and marketing a viable round. The round is not as sensitive to changes in barrel length as some, meaning a shorter barrel could be chosen, if the scenario required it. However, where it really seems to shine is in the long range department, with high BC bullets (some available from Lapua) able to stay supersonic to 1200 yards. Of course a bolt gun could mean higher pressure tolerances for the reloader to experiment with. As is however, it seems to be a viable choice for big game hunters as well, with new loadings (not just from Alexander Arms), such as the Wolf Gold line, and Hornady. So I guess through all of this rambling I am just saying that I agree that it is a viable choice, should the market continue expanding for it.
