98's 6mm ARC

Recommended Posts

This Lee Factory Crimp die is still listed as "backordered", but they put a new availability date on it- today was the day, Aug 14th...  Now, they're saying it's gonna be available Aug 31st... This info just changed today, on their website. 

Just go ahead and order one.  It's right here in my hand, now.  Here's the newest info on it, on their website:

https://leeprecision.com/factory-crimp-die-6mm-arc.html

Maybe I "backordered" the only experimental one that they had, in existence?...   :lmao:

@DayWalker needs to order one, just to find out...   :laffs:

I don't know, brother - we'll put the paper up at 850, and see how many different sized hole we can recover from it...  and what they look like, sizewise...   :box1::banana:

I think this thing is a winner.  I'm skeered to admit that I think it might be that Magic Unicorn...   the Grendel Killer.  Initial drop test at 500 has the 18" Grendel a 3.4 mils (which is incredible), and the 18" 6 ARC at 2.6 mils.  That is the exact reason (and shock), that it MUST go 850 this weekend.  And it will. 

I's a pretty crazy projectile and load, from my very minor testing of it thus far. It's pretty badass.  I don't throw that out there lightly, especially when I'm talking about my Grendels.  I have some BAD Grendels. 

But how does the energy compare between the two? 
 

and grendel still has one thing going for itself; wolf makes steel cases ammo for it really cheap. Don’t judge, I don’t make a lot of money. Lol

PRI stuff isn't exactly cheap. BUT, those are the parts that were spec'd for the MK12.

@Rsquared you still looking for Mk12 Mod 0?  Maybe not original but it "creates the look of the original mark 12 Mod 0 rifle."

I'm in a temporary holding pattern on acquiring any parts for the MK 12 Mod 0 build for right now. I've got a $4,200 property tax bill that I've got to absorb first.

All for the pleasure and honor to live in PG County....the outskirts (read as the hood) of DC suburbs.  :lmao:

That is a real PRI Gen II rail - and it needs a different top rail, in order to make a Mk12.  Pri still has the Gen II top rails, though.  Same price as the Gen III stuff.

The PRI Gen III stuff is an improvement over the Gen II parts, FWIW.  Technology and advancements,  and all.  If that rail can save money, it's worth it, if you're going all the way, in the long run. Otherwise, the Gen III stuff is (hardware) mo' bettah.  Just my $0.02 on it all.

Shot850 yards last Sunday, 16 Aug.  7.1 mils of drop at 850 yards.  Unreal.  More details coming. I've been sidetracked by my truck being stolen sometime between the evening of 17 Aug and morning of 18 Aug. Recovered today, by the Local PD knock on my door.

Been dealing with some shiit.  I have 99 problems, but 6 ARC ain't one of them.  It's fucking STELLAR.   Thus far, it's smoking 6.5 Grendel, by leaps and bounds - which smoked my .308s, and everything else.  It's all that, that they said it was, and it's much, much more...  The 6ARC is the real deal, and I don't toss that about lightly...

Is she still in good shape, mangled, what's the deal? I don't suppose your steel targets were recovered too?

Sorry to hear bout your truck. Any ideas as to who? No guns in there I hope. 
7.1 outstanding. What does the grendel need?

My 18" Grendel SPR is 8.4 mils of drop at 850 yards.

No guns in the truck - I never leave firearms in a vehicle.  It ended up on an indian res.

That’s like 84% of the drop @ 850 yds. That’s a rather large improvement.

whew - bad enough the truck would have been way worse with guns in it. I have a friend that has guns in his truck at all times. I keep telling him it’s a matter of time before someone else has a couple of new guns especially when his vehicle screams southern redneck gun nut.

Found it 6/11 gettin close to 3 months. I’m excited for you. That LaRue stuff is drop dead sexy!

6/11 was my lower, and I was gonna wait and take my time with this gun.  I said Screw It, and ordered everything else on 6/17.  :laffs:

9/17 will be 3 months, and the CS Guy is getting a phonecall.  I don't care if it's ready - but he should have an update for me by then?...   :popcorn:

I'd show you guys the stellar performance of this thing on the steel at 500 and 850 - but all 4 IPSC steel targets were stolen from the truck, the $750 Reese Trunion hitch was stolen, the (bolted through the bed rails) toolbox was stolen, as with all it's contents, the cab was cleaned out (lots of IPSC cardboard targets in there), all tools that were inside the cab were stolen, 10 brand new VS-17 panels were stolen, everything under the seats was stolen - but they didn't touch the glovebox or center console, or any paperwork inside those two...  Had a pair of mil-issue desert boots in there - they took the left one, threw the right one in the bed...

So, I'm looking for someone that only has a left foot, 10.5 Regular?...

Sorry for your loss buddy.  That's heavy duty anger and sorrow.  If you want a 7.62 Nato 12.5"  barrel let me know.  No charge.  It's new,  I bought so much stuff hanging out with you guys I have an ample supply and theoretically I could open a surplus site.  Not really but 'what the hay'.   I'll throw in a 556 as well.  Just say yes,  maybe that should be our second amendment slogan,  " Just say Yes " to guns.  Consider it some payback for all the good you do here.  I tried to support this site through what I consider meager things like using the banner from Brownells and others.  I don't like doing meager.  Go big or go home works for me.  Helping you out helps us all out.  Just say Yes.

I had a different post I deleted once I reread your post.  I may have deleted your address from old mail.  Would you be kind enough to PM it once more.  Let me just say this,  my above post is gentleman speak (Orwellian).  That's when I try my best to be a part of a community and add genuine stock to the corral.  It is a payback.  I told you before you could be paid for your advice and yet you continue to give it away,  no charge.  Anyway I'll stop before you think I'm posturing for a pant's down hug.

Oh, you're getting a Pant's Down Hug anyway...   Just wait for it, and don't try to brace yourself.  Once it's happening, and you recognize what's going down,  just let it go, and roll with it.  If you stiffen up before impact, it's only gonna hurt worse...   :banana::lmao:
