who makes 6.5 grendels?

hello all, I am in the researching phase of possibly building a new rifle for deer hunting. I am thinking of the 6.5 grendel for ease of reloading and it's higher ballistic coefficiency than 6.8 SPC. my only problem is actually finding parts. stripped lowers and LPKs are easy, I'm just having trouble finding caliber specific parts such as upper halves and magazines. I am trying to keep to a tight budget while also staying away from the rif raf.

does anyone know where I could find a decent upper half or rifle kit in 6.5, specifically a 20" rifle length with flat top upper?

Mags and brass from A.A.
Uppers can be long lead time, suggest you consider building your upper (my son did his...), barrels are pricey (as they should be for a long-range round) and somewhat scarce but can be had.

He's never looked back since building his.
