6.5 Grendel AR?

I'm eyeing a Bear Creek Arsenal barrel that includes a BCG. Pretty much got the other parts laying around to build a 6.5 Grendel AR.

Anyone have experience with Bear Creek Arsenal barrels? Thoughts on the cartridge?

    I've been looking at them. They get good reviews on Grendel forums. Price is cheap.

    Can’t speak for how it is now but Bear Creek is a restructured Moore Machine Co ... just FYI.

    I have seen a bunch in shops since they are local and don’t look bad but function and accuracy I can’t speak about. I have seen one go back to a LGS with a “major cycling problem” that turned out to be a crappy BCG assembly and leak from the gas key. Mil-spec parts are pretty much their standard so don’t expect an excellent trigger or sub MOA barrel but it should work.
