So far this is what I'm thinking:

Pistol in .223 totally impractical range

.223 varmint rifle 22"? Barrel

5.7x28 upper on standard carbine lower

Then???? 9mm m4 style, and maybe a .50 for the final one. Just looking for some fresh ideas. 82367

300 AAC Blackout

6.5 grendal outshine everything past 300yds in a AR15 platform even smokes a AR10 308 for trajectory and ties it for energy at 1000 yds:D The 300 blackout will have more energy inside 200 yds past that the 6.5 grendal has more, and a way flatter tracectory.

A 6.5 Grendel for sure.

Pistols are fun

but SBR's are more fun.

Everyone needs a couple of carbines.

Iron sight toy.

Old school

I may sbr one of these lowers but I just started the process for my first suppressor and probably won't do it until I have that in hand.

The 6.5 Grendel uses the same mags as 5.56 correct?

What kind of lowers are those? (Brand)

.458 SOCOM
22LR Dedicated (Not conversion)
FN 5.7
223/5.56 20 inch (anything longer is just extra weight )
300 BLK

Ive always wanted a "Dissapator." With a Magpul full length handguard... Would look pretty darn handsome.

Deja vu

In no particular order...

1) Pistol caliber carbine
2) Top-quality 16" general-purpose carbine
3) Long-distance 6.5G rifle
4) .50 Beowulf (similar ballistics as .458 but slightly cheaper ammo) rifle/carbine
5) SBR
