6.5 GRENDEL Custom-grade ammunition provides shooters and hunters custom grade ammunition but in a factory offering. Each round is built to the tightest tolerances for peak performance rivaling and sometimes surpassing handloads in many guns. 6.5 GRENDEL ammunition is new production, non-corrosive, in boxer primed, reloadable brass cases. Loaded with Hornady’s 123 Grain bullet, this round combines proven FORT SCOT performance with a higher ballistic coefficient than available with most hunting bullets. The sharp, pointed polymer tip creates a faster, flatter shooting bullet. With its one-piece core and jacket strengthened in critical areas, the SST delivers much more controlled expansion and superior weight retention than other tipped bullets. Featuring FORT SCOT trade mark ring system, this bullet’s core and jacket remain locked solid during expansion, creating massive wound,
6.5 Grendel’s long-range performance sits squarely in between the 5.56×45 and the 7.62×51, which would certainly be practical for combat. And as of March 2020, Zastava Arms was developing a 6.5 Grendel modular assault rifle for the Serbian armed forces.
Defining “Effective Range”
But what exactly is “effective range?” According to the US Department of Defense, it is “the maximum distance at which a weapon may be expected to be accurate and achieve the desired effect.”
As a cartridge designed for warfare, we can assume the 6.5 Grendel’s “desired effect” is disabling an enemy combatant. The US Army has determined that a bullet carrying as little as 60 ft lbs of energy is capable of inflicting a disabling injury.
