The 6.5 Grendel cartridge is one of the many “middle ground” options between a 7.62 round and a 5.56 round. It is a bit heavier than the 5.56x45mm, so if you’re anything like me, you’re looking to reduce the weight of your rifle to compensate for the extra weight of the round. The ODIN Works 16″ 6.5 Grendel / LBC Intermediate ULTRAlite Stainless Steel Barrel gives you the option of the hard hitting 6.5 Grendel/LBC cartridge, but still gives you the awesome ODIN Works ULTRAlite barrel profile. And with multiple online 5-Star reviews, this barrel is clearly a good choice for your new 6.5 Grendel build, or to replace your existing 6.5 Grendel barrel. Plus, our AR-15Discounts.com satisfaction guarantee provides you with peace of mind for your purchase. Our Guarantee says if you’re not happy for any reason, you can send it back to us within 30 days for a full refund. Its easy and worry free.
The ODIN Works 16″ 416R Stainless Steel ULTRAlite Barrel is chambered in 6.5 Grendel/LBC, an intermediate length gas system, it has M4 feed ramps for reliable feeding, a Button-Rifled 1:8″ twist rate (meaning the bullet makes one full rotation every 8″ inches while inside the barrel), 5/8×24 thread pattern to fit specific AR muzzle devices*, and one of the lightest possible barrel profiles. This top of the line hand-lapped barrel comes in at just 1 lbs. 10 ounces… that is light for a “mid-size” cartridge like the 6.5 Grendel. Plus, this awesome 16″ ODIN Works barrel comes with an adjustable Stainless Steel Gas Block and intermediate length gas tube. This Adjustable Gas Block lets you tune your AR system for shooting various loads and grain weights. The included gas block is made to fit a .750″ diameter gas journal.
*NOTE: Be sure the muzzle device you attach is designed for 6.5 Grendel or larger cartridges. DO NOT attach a 5.56×45 muzzle device to your 6.5 Grendel barrel, it will not end well.
NOTE: 416R is a Crucible brand steel and it was formulated specifically for barrels. Most types of steel, including normal 416SS are not designed to be used in freezing temperatures. But this steel was designed to operate in arctic temperatures, up to -40F. 416R also has greater accuracy potential than normal 416SS and 4150 steel due to its ability to take highly defined rifling and machining cuts.
NOTE: “LBC” in the title means Les Baer Custom which refers to the .264 LBC-AR cartridge. The .264 LBC-AR cartridge was designed by the Les Baer team to be completely compatible with the 6.5 Grendel.
