Special Purpose Cartridge: 6.5

6.5 Grendel
Quote:
Hanka, creator of 65Grendel.com, tells us: "The 6.5 Grendel is an evolution of the 6.5 PPC,
_first created by Dr. Lou Palmisano when he developed his famous 22 PPC and 6PPC.
Competition shooter Arne Brennan of Houston, Texas, saw the potential in Palmisano's 6.5 PPC wildcat.
He had a custom AR15 built to shoot it and used high BC bullets to take it out to 1000 yards

6.5 Grendel Cartridge Guide
Quote:
The 6.5 Grendel was originally conceived for the AR15 platform.
The idea was to have a cartridge that performed better at long-range than the .223 Remington,
_while still retaining the ability to feed multiple rounds from a magazine.
AR15 National Match and cross-course shooters had turned to the long 80-90 grain VLD bullets


_in pursuit of better long-range ballistics.

The 6.5mm Grendel
Quote:
The AR15 rifle imposed severe constraints on the 6.5mm Grendel's design in the areas of back thrust,
_pressure (MAP 45,000 psi), and cartridge overall length.
The new cartridge had to function safely in an action designed around, and feed through a magazine
_intended for, little .223 Remington cartridges.
The Long Range AR - 6.5 Grendel
Quote:
European IPSC Rifle shooters are looking at this caliber as a potential competitive advantage.
The Grendel is powerful enough to score major in practical rifle.
