  • Let's talk 6.5 Grendel for a bit

    Well boys I pulled the trigger on a Grendel build now it's time to work up some loads. What I'm looking to do is a lite bullet loads for predator and a heavy for deer and maybe bear (I know but those buggers keep popping up around my deer stand) . So anyone have loads they like.

    My pet load is the Nosler Accubond in 129 grains hiding a charge of 31 grains of CFE223 under it. I don't have any lighter bullet weights that I have tried as I use a 5.56 for that purpose.

      I just put together 6.5 AR, I haven't loaded for it yet, but I got deal on bunch of 100gr Hornady, I'll likely start with H335, since I have bunch.

      Then they came for me -- and there was no one left to speak for me.

        I don't have a Grendel, but I have similar cartridges with fat bodies and steep shoulders, and I would go with H335 or H332 (will probably be compressed) for the lighter bullets.

        I have a friend with one, and he uses 4198 (I believe compressed) on heavier (120G?) bullets. His rifle is a solid half minute rifle I've shot numerous times. You are going to love shooting it.

              I cho(o)se to use Hornady brass, because they had their ammo on sale, for just over price of brass. I've ended up with Hornady brass for a few chamberings, for that reason, watch the sales, before you spring for brass. I try to avoid factory ammo, but when they're selling it for brass, price why not.

                We tried a number of powders with the 123 SST and the best loads were with Leverevolution. It shot one hole groups in his rifle
