    I love my new 6.5 Grendel almost as much as having the ammo at wholesale! It is however the most I have spent so far putting an ar together, still waiting for the fancy brake to arrive.

    I guess I should have said my 300blk out is kinda set up as a home defense gun red dot site for 25 yards and a crimson trace linq laser light system on it lol unless you giving me s#!+ from my mailbox you will probably never see it LOL I wouldn't try to use it for hunting past 75/100 yards

    The short, fat, homely girl Grendel got a boost from Wolf when they started offering ammo at .25 per round.
    6.8 ammo (Federal) is .65 per round.
    American (Hornady) Grendel ammo is .83 per round.

    Good point, we all need one of each! There is 5.56, .223 wylde, .22 nosler, 7.62x39, .300 aac, .458 socom, .450 bushmaster, .50 Beowulf, 6.5 Grendel, 6.8 spc... I see a lot of reasons to start that underground vault project.

    That was part of what got me going in this direction a few years ago. Thank you for the share.

    Just happened to have loaded 50 of those with 23 gr 4198; COL= 2.253"; chrono shows 2470 fps. Very accurate round. Managed to come by five 100 packs of the Hornady 110 gr V-Max. They shoot a little better than the 110 gr Nosler Accubonds but the AccuBonds seem like an ideal hunting round.

    That load worked perfect for the 16" barrel. Does anyone have a load for a 12.5 inch? 110 grain bullets

    I run the same loads through my 16" and my 11.3" barrels, but the 11.3" is tuned for a suppressor.
