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.
