6.5 grendel

The 6.5mm Grendel (6.5×39mm) is an intermediate cartridge designed by Arne Brennan, Bill Alexander, and Janne Pohjoispää as a low recoil, high accuracy, 200–800 yard cartridge specifically for the AR-15. It is an improved variation of the 6.5mm PPC. Since its introduction, it has proven to be a versatile design and is now expanding out into other firearms including bolt-action rifles and the Kalashnikov system.
The name "6.5mm Grendel" was a trademark owned by Alexander Arms until it was legally released to allow the cartridge to become SAAMI standardized.

    First outing with new Grendel...

    And I really don't have much to report. My scope wasn't in yet, so I robbed the scope off my old .22, and I only took one type of ammo along, the AE 90 gr. TNT load. Only put 15 rounds down range, nothing to write home about, was shooting between 1 & 1.5" at 100 yards. Not at all concerned...

    Finally building a Grendel...

    My shooting buddy just hit the order button for a 6.5 Grendel barrel for an AR, which got me thinking about a bolt action Grendel again. Wasn't really shopping, but decided to check in at Brownell's, just to refresh my memory on the cost of a barreled action. Wouldn't you know it, the one I...

    Just hit the order button...

    On a Howa barreled action from Brownell's, it's a 1500 Mini-action, 20" heavy barrel, in 6.5 Grendel. I've toyed with building a Grendel bolt action before, was poking around Brownell's web site, and found this on sale (clearance?) for $140 off the regular $500. Free shipping included, so that...

    300win mag vs 6.5 Grendel

    As a newbie this is probably a dum question but I wanna ask it anyways. Will a 130g Grendel reach 1,000yrds faster than a 300win mag, and would they also have similar knock down power?
