Remarks:
Appearing on the scene in 2002, under the development of Alexander Arms, the 6.5 Grendel was a new AR 15 platform friendly cartridge. Having been developed from the PPC cartridges with greater case capacity than the 223, it was soon recognized as a cartridge with wide versatility. Quite useful for target shooting to 600 yards, it also performs very well on varmints at medium ranges. Naturally, hunters would also be attracted due to its light recoil along with plenty of velocity and energy to harvest deer and antelope. Accuracy has proven to be very good and lightweight short- action bolt rifles would work well for smaller statured shooters and those hunting in rugged terrain. Versatile, efficient, and accurate all are fitting descriptions of the 6.5 Grendel.

    Y’all didn’t include AR Comp? Works great in my rifle. How about a 120 ish grain Gameking for the Gren?

      Right!? This works well in my rifle too. I’m pushing a 123 SMK 2490fps with 28gr of ARcomp out of a 18 inch barrel. No signs of pressure and groups under .75 of an inch at 100m.

    All the obvious powders are missing ARComp, 8208XBR and CFE223.

    I used the ppc case with a 40 degree shoulder and 7mm bullets, With 29 grs of AA2520 a 150 ran over 2400. That was in 1987. A 40 degree shoulder would greatly improve performance with a 6.5 bullet
