With the development of wildcat calibers that eventually become more common and less wildcat over time it is difficult for reloading companies to keep up with published, verified data. Nobody knew 10 years ago that the 6.5 Creedmoor, 6mm Creedmoor or 6.5 Grendel would be as popular as they are today, but here we are.
To satisfy consumer demand and need, Sierra Bullets is now publishing data on the 6.5 Grendel caliber for reloaders. You can either print off the new data from their blog and add it as an appendage to your current manual, simply read it online with your smart phone or await for the arrival of their next manual which will have it inserted accordingly.
The 6.5 Grendel caliber had humble beginnings in 2002 when it was unveiled first in an AR-15 by Alexander Arms. From there it took off rather quickly once people realized it had greater case capacity than .223 Remington, was obviously suitable for AR-15 enthusiasts and proved itself worthy both on paper and medium to large size game.
The published data that Sierra Bullets has available through their selection of bullets begins with an 85 Grain Hollow-Point (HP) up to their 130 Grain Matchking (MK) and Tipped Matchking (TMK).
Once again, all of this data is free on the Sierra Bullets blog in PDF form or can be simply read below for your reloading and hunting endeavors.
