6.5 Grendel

6.5 Grendel is a rifle cartridge that was developed in the early 2000s by Alexander Arms. It was designed to offer long-range accuracy and terminal ballistics in an AR-15 platform rifle.

The 6.5 Grendel is capable of achieving muzzle velocities of up to 2,700 feet per second with a 120 grain bullet. This gives it an effective range of up to 1,000 yards, making it suitable for hunting, target shooting, and tactical applications.

One of the main advantages of the 6.5 Grendel is its ability to maintain a high level of accuracy at extended ranges while still maintaining sufficient energy to effectively take down game animals. The cartridge is also known for its relatively mild recoil, making it popular among shooters who prefer to shoot for extended periods.
