Dropping back in with this:
I was talking over my dilemma with a few friends and after describing the 6.5 Grendel suggestion (and its being met with great admiration), this is my rough plan:
1) 16 or 18" barrel
2) Midlength Gas
3) 1:8 twist
4) Either a B5 SOPMOD, a CTR/STR or a plain A2 stock
5) VLTOR VC-301 comp
6) Whatever 80% lower I can find, same for LPK
7) MOE or ERGO grip
8) Burris PEPR
9) Vortex Crossfire II in 2-7x32 (Had this on my previous SPR and was very impressed)
10) Gerber Shortstack multitool
11) VTAC sling
What do we think?
