    Did the .35 Gremlin, or .35 Grenel ever gain commercial acceptance as a cartridge for the AR15?:huh: I was reading some old Wildcat WEB Site entrys, but didn't find anything current. The main problem seemed to be (Same old crap) :( Magazines.

    Negative. These were made from 6.5 Grendel, or 7.62x39 Brass:thumbup:

    Sorry to drag up an old, old thread guys, but I thought it made better sense than just posting something new.

    I stumbled onto the .358 Gremlin concept and have been doing a bit of Googling to read more about it. But, is it basically a theoretical-only cartridge that never, ever got even started? No AR barrels or uppers to be purchased?

    Yeah, I thought it was cool too, especially since I already had a 7.62x39 and a .223
    I followed it for a while, but it never seemed to go "Mainstream".:confused:

    I ended up buying a .458 Socom from RRA and after a few teething problems, mainly reloading dies, I'm quite happy with it.:thumbup:
