    Don't let this get out of hand, I know how these 6.5 wazoo threads usually go.

    I agree with Harrison: All things being equal including the extractor, for the sake of argument a Grendel bolt with a deeper 0.136 recess is NOT going to be as strong as one with a 0.125 recess.

    OP, you have an awesome build list. If you cant get .5 MOA with this barrel/bolt combo and good loads, at least most of the time, then it cant be done.

    I too want to see the final product and range report. Hornady Black is great break-in ammo btw.

    A solid build, nicely done. Really interested to hear how that Proof barrel does.

    Only thing in your build I might have changed, to be consistent with the kind of shooting you can do with the 6.5G, is I'd have gone with a slightly lighter trigger. But depends on your purpose(s) for the build.

    ETA: Oh I missed your last Q in the OP. Yes you can get 1/2 MOA out of a gas gun. Not everybody can. Here's one guy who can build those: https://www.precisionfirearms.com/8.html. One key component to getting that 1/2 MOA is the trigger, and you may be able to achieve that with the G SDE trigger--I don't know if I could. I have slightly better success in precision shooting roles using their SSA-E triggers.
