Set Up An AR-15 In 6mmAR Easily

Why it's so easy to set up an AR-15 in 6mmAR
What makes it so easy to set up an AR-15 in the 6mmAR cartridge, is the fact that all the parts for the rifle (except for the barrel and bolt) are standard .223 AR-15 parts, and only minimum modifications to the rifle or these parts are necessary to make an AR-15 function with the cartridge.

If you have an existing AR-15, you can use your existing lower, and all you need to do is purchase a separate 6mmAR match upper.

If you do not already have an AR-15, you will need to obtain a lower.

The only other items you will need will be reloading dies (Redding 6mmAR match die set), magazines and brass, all of which are readily available and can be purchased from AR-X Enterprises, LLC.  You cannot use the standard .223 magazines since the 6mm AR cartridge is bigger in diameter than a .223 and needs a magazine designed for it.  Some brands of AR-15 magazines designed for use with the 6.8 SPC and the 6.5 Grendel cartridges work well with the 6mm AR and should be used instead of some others, to guarantee reliable feeding and function.  The good news is there are readily available magazines in the commercial marketplace that do work well with the cartridge in an AR-15.   The easiest brass to use is 6.5 Grendel (Lapua) small primer brass which is readily available.  The only case preparation necessary is to first run the cases through the full length 6mmAR resizing die to neck them down to 6mm before loading and firing them (no neck turning, no trimming and no special fire forming).  The brass can be purchased as below, and also from other commercial suppliers.
