The introduction to the 6.5 Grendel Ammo to the product range from Alexander Arms(r) in the year 2004 The tradition of never compromises in design, engineering and technological advancement continues.
Its 6.5-Grendel provides an extreme ability to hunt or competition, as well as for tactical purposes. These ranges go beyond those previously possible with the AR-15 type weapon.
This 6.5-Grendel has the flexibility to switch from light ammunition for varmints in the 90-grain class that provide excellent accuracy for small game and competition shooting, to mid-weight 120- to 108-grain competition bullets.
Then onto 130and 140-gram ammunition perfect for longer distance shooting for tactical purposes.
The origins of 6.5 Grendel-Ammo wolf may be traced back to the Soviet 7.62×39. The design was altered to allow for European competition and narrowed to form that of the 220 Russian.
From there The Dr. Lou Palmisano and Ferris Pindel were the first to take the case and expelled the shoulder, resulting in the 22 PPC as well as the 6mm PPC, which now are the dominant bench rest competitors.
When they designed the 6.5 Grendel Ammo, the starting position was that of the PPC design, however it was soon apparent that the quality of PPC wasn’t as air-tight as required.
Initial research using an unspecified 6.5 PPC also showed that the case was not able to hold powder which, in turn resulted in pressure issues.
This final 6.5 grendel hunting ammo design draws on the PPC however, it’s very much it’s own gun.
The capacity of the internal chamber was increased by adjusting the shoulder forward, and the wall thicknesses of the shoulder and neck were increased to make the most robust case that is capable of feeding the semi-automatic rifle.
In addition, the exterior taper on the side of the box was adjusted to ensure an efficient feed within the magazine.
Is the 6.5 Grendel worth it?
The 6.5 Grendel Ammo is challenging the standard of the law enforcement and military forces across the globe.
It was first unveiled during May of 2003 in Blackwater Training, the Blackwater Training facility in North Carolina The 6.5 Grendel Ammo out-shot the 7.62 NATO at range , with only less recoil.
Supersonic to 1,200 yards The 6.5 Grendel Ammo delivered superior external ballistics over those of 7.62 NATO.
Superior reliability, better internal and final ballistics over the state of the technology, and outstanding accuracy on the M16/AR-15 chassis that is light in weight, it appears to be the ultimate example of the capabilities of the chassis of M16/AR-15.
This 6.5 grendel ammo in stock is not a collection of compromises, rather it is the perfect combination of mechanical functionality internal, external, and terminal ballistics, all working together.
Shooting with a 120-grain Lapua Scenar ammo seek with the Ballistic coefficient of .547 and the muzzle velocity of 2,600 FPS provides outstanding accuracy up towards 1,200 feet.
Why is 6.5 Grendel so good?
With a range of 600 yards tennis ball-sized targets will not be able to compete with this round with a flat shooting pattern.
For maximum accuracy, terminal ballistics and lengthy range applications The 6.5 Grendel from Alexander Arms is unbeatable.
In comparison with that of the 5.56 NATO, the 6.5 Grendel is nearly double the lead mass allows for two times the amount of fragments.
If the maximum amount of fragmentation occurs with the maximum cavity in time and the final ballistics are very convincing, all within a package that shoots more efficiently and has half the recoil felt than the 7.62 NATO M80 ball.
