6.5 Grendel anyone?
I have to say, I am late to the game on this cartridge. It is a viable deer cartridge out to 300 yds, retaining over 1000ft lbs of energy at 300. Two of my buddies have bolt action rifles, and love theirs, especially due to it being in a smaller action. Another buddy has an AR with a heavy barrel on it, and has taken 2 deer, bang flop around 200 yds. I have several 6.5x55 swedes, and 2 6.5x284's I built. My justification was why go down in horsepower with the same bullet weights. But as I get older, and messed up physically, the appeal of a lighter rile is looking better. Anyone on her have anything to share to this?
