The 6.5mm Grendel (6.5×39mm) is an intermediate cartridge jointly designed by  Bill Alexander, competitive shooter Arne Brennan and Janne Pohjoispää, as a low-recoil, high-precision rifle cartridge specifically for the AR-15 platform at medium/long range (200–800 yard). It is an improved variation of the 6.5mm PPC.

The 6.5mm Grendel cartridge was first unveiled in May 2003 at the Blackwater Training Facility in North Carolina, where it remained supersonic at 1,200 yd (1,100 m) range and out-shot the 7.62mm NATO with only half the recoil.

6.5 Grendel

The 6.5 Grendel is built for those who want a round that has a longer useful range than the 5.56mm, but isn’t as heavy as a . 308 or as specialized as a 6.5 Creedmoor.

    Really good stuff that shoots @ least M.O.A. or less groups for me out to 270yds. All my groups were 3 or 5 shot from AR semi auto rifle with S.S. 20″bbl, 1 in 8″ twist, & can.
    Maker bullets are by FAR the VERY best flying and grouping solid copper expanding hunting bullets I have ever used and these are every bit just as deadly… took just exactly the very same amount of time to get them in the mail as they listed on the website when I was buying them.
