    Why do you have all the rifle gear when you are fishing for coyotes?

    What a cool little project rifle! Plus now you have great primary extraction, and true concentric threads for the firing pin and shroud assembly. Thanks for sharing.:D:D

    Like they say the Grendel is based on a fatter 7.62x39 case not the skinny 5.56 so you need the larger diameter bolt face (from PT&G). And there would also be a problem with feeding from the double stack magazine into battery ; as the new grendel bolt face will not match up with old 223 magazine follower. All you need to fix that is a 7.62x39 follower. But since a 7.62x 39 follower does not exist all you need to do is use a shortened .308 one. My Grendel Remington 700 is 100% dependable, weighs in around 6 1/2 lbs with scope, shoots about .5 inch groups..but it was not cheapest rifle I ever bought. If I didn't have that 700 action I not have done the project.
