The 22 Nosler was designed to transform the performance of any standard .223/5.56mm AR-15 into the fastest, most powerful .22 caliber available in the AR platform.

With the overwhelming popularity and modularity of the AR-15 rifle, upgrading an existing rifle to the new cartridge was made to be easy and hassle-free requiring only a swap of the upper, or even just the barrel, and switching to a 6.8 Rem SPC magazine.

This effortless, two-step retrofit allows shooters to experience the 22 Nosler’s lightning-fast, hard-hitting performance, while still being able to use their existing .223 bolt carrier group. With that quick change, 22 Nosler shooters will get 30% more energy and nearly 300 fps faster than a .223 Remington/ 5.56 NATO.

    1. Be very careful going to the 22 Nosler. I bought an upper from white oak (a very outstanding company) and had so many problems that I switched to a 556 upper. It did shoot great, to the point that I was getting 3/8″ groups at 100 yards. The bolt messed up the very soft brass to the point it couldn’t be reloaded and yes they were Nosler factory loads. The brass is to expensive to be a rimfire.

    2. Comparing Creedemore to Grendel is like comparing .308 to .223. Different platforms. Better comparison would be .22 Nosler to the other small frame cartridges like 6.5 Grendel, 6.8 SPC and of course, .223 – 5.56. Compare Creedemore to .308, .260, 7mm-08, .and 243.

    3. Careful about Nosler’s “estimation” on velocity improvements over 223. They are basing their data on tests with a 20″ barrel. Also be careful about the Midway AR Stoner barrel and upper. The barrel has proven to be inconsistent accuracy wise with some variations between 1.5 MOA (best) to 4.5 MOA (worse). testing had shown the bore to be so oversized a .221 pin gauge will fall right through and a .222 gauge will travel into the muzzle, under the threads, 3/4″. Apparently an oversized button was used in the bore and who knows what happened under the threads.

        I don’t want to start any big debate, but were did this above information come from. Was there a test conducted, that’s in writing?? Who did the experiment with the lack of accuracy mentioned, what were the loads, and are there pics of this alleged accuracy and bore problem? I’ve shot a friends Stoner Upper last month and I was printing 3/4 and smaller groups all F–ken day. And that was with off the shelf Nosler ammo. I and my friend are developing hand loads that will best the factory ammo and compared to the 223, this 22 Nosler round just blows it away when shooting 300yrs and beyond. The military should look at this round, they might just be surprised and I’m sure it would be a better stopper out at 300 plus then the current 223.

        1. These are taken fro the Comments from Midway USA’s site from people who purchased the Upper Conversion. I just got done reading them a few minutes ago.. I personally think that most of these people were shooting the wrong bullet weight for the 1 in 8” barrel twist. they seemed to complain about 1.5” groups @ 100 yds but never reported or shot the 77 gr bullets which would have worked better through that twist rate, just like a regular AR with a 1 in 7” and 77 gr bullets…

    4. That’s I have a few ARs but are new to the 6.5. I have a 556 a 6.8 & a couple 308. I saw a sale on a upper in 6.5 Grendel and didn’t won’t to get into something that was out dated or Ammo that hard to find. The Grendel the CM and whisper is some what confusing to me.

      Thanks Richard

      1. Creedmoor and Grendel are different platforms. The 6.5 CM is built on the AR10 large frame while the 6.5 Grendel is built on the small AR15 platform. The 22 Nosler uses a rebated rim 6.8 SPC case and is comparable in size but better ballistically to 6.5 Grendel.

      1. And in an AR platform the 6.5 Creedmoor tells the Grendel to go home and come back when it grows up. It’s all about having choices and the 22 Nosler gives us something else to choose from. Problem? I fail to see one.

          1. You OBVIOUSLY don’t own BOTH of them! The CREEDMOOR outperforms the Grendel in Every way! PLEASE just because that’s what YOU have doesn’t mean it’s the best! The Grendel has LESS powder so it LACKS IN EVERY CATEGORY! I OWN BOTH SO I KNOW. How many people do you see shooting 6.5 Grendels out to a mile? NONE…
