    I didn't know about this round until I read through the Hornady 9th Edition manual.

    It looks like a screaming round out of an AR-15 platform. I mean, 30 caliber 110's @ 3000 fps and 150 grain bullets at 2600 fps. What's not to like?

    Anyone have a rifle and/or load for this round?

    Uh, yeah. This could be moved to the reloading room without objection...

    Never seemed to catch on. There seems to be quite a bit more availability of rifles, uppers and ammo out for 6.5 grendel vs the 30AR. If I would be in the market for an AR with more balls than the .223 for deer I would mos tlikely go with the grendel or even the 6.8. The .30AR reminds me of the wssm cartridges.

    Another bad *** .30cal AR round is the .30 OSSM. Even more scarce than the .30AR but will launch a 150gr bullet close to the velocity a 30-06 will. A 110gr bullet a little under 3500fps. The .30 OSSM is based off the winchester WSSM case.
