6.5 Grendel

The 6.5 Grendel is a cartridge designed for long-range shooting and hunting, particularly for use against medium-sized game animals like deer and antelope. It was developed in the early 2000s by Bill Alexander of Alexander Arms, and is based on the 6.5mm PPC (a benchrest cartridge).

The 6.5 Grendel has gained popularity among hunters and long-range shooters due to its ability to deliver accurate and consistent shots at long ranges, while still providing sufficient stopping power for medium-sized game. It has also been used in some military applications, including by some special forces units, as it offers superior accuracy and ballistics compared to traditional 5.56mm rounds.

Overall, the 6.5 Grendel is a versatile cartridge that is suitable for a variety of applications, including hunting, long-range target shooting, and tactical operations.
