6.5 Grendel is an amazing round for the AR-15 platform, providing deadly accuracy out to 1200 yds! The bullet selection for 6.5mm is amazing, including 100+ gr bullets with ballistic coefficients in excess of .500!
6.5 Grendel is another excellent long range round. It should reach 1200m without a problem retaining enough energy to take down a human (tactical benchmark for comparison). This should theoretically take care of my long range needs pairing with the 7mm-08. Since this is my dream list, I want a bolt gun and semi-auto for this category.
