This has become my favorite caliber for hogs & deer on our place in Robert Lee!
Excellent buck sir!! Plenty of reason to be proud of him!!

Trophy8,
I'm in the middle of building a Grendel as well to match with my Pulsar thermal scope. I'd say it's more of a budget build than yours. What do you think about your stock choice? I have been looking at that one as well

Time will tell. I think the PRS would have been too big and heavy for a hunting rig.

Itís no secret that I love the 6.5 caliber but the Grendel I donít like it at all, I LOVE IT! Yesterday my brother and I shot a little long range with a mix of rifles from full custom 260 and 7-08ai to 308 and the Grendelís we both have one. Our ranges were 351,526, and 750 yards and the Grendel was by far my favorite rifle to shoot yesterday.

We both had first round hits at 500 and 750 and shot impressive groups we were both using hornady Black ammo just because we havenít started to load for the Grendel yet. There was some inconsistency with the ammo and you could tell at 750 yards.

A lot of people have been asking about the lethality of this little round, Iíve killed 6 animals with mine since I put it together and none have ran. If your on the fence about build/buying one donít hesitate itís a truly awesome round.

If you have an adjustable gas block they do not tear up the brass.
