the grendel has a certain cool factor, but lets face it, it's a propritary round and there is no real supply of ammo. Plus no true ak series mag to make it work. (223 should do ok but no evidence)
The 260 is known for its long range power and accuracy
the 243 aint too bad either.

Purpose of gun:
white tail at no more than 400 yards
I have plenty of m-14 mags so feeding a 260 or 243 is no problem.
There may be a problem with 6.5 mags.
Barrels are expensive for 6.5
Take off barrels are cheap for 243, and 308
Ammo is plentiful for all except the 6.5
Does anyone know the base diameter of a remington 700 barrel if I spin off the threads? >>>found it, .992"<<<<
Anyone think the yugo trunnion and bolt wont last against the 243?
anyone have experience with bent metal or cold steel solutions yugo receivers?
anyone have a link to pressures for the 243?
