I'll start off with some 123 grain Hornady SSTs and see how it goes.

The SST is a fragmentation bullet, lethal but not something I like to hunt meat with. Suggest trying the new CavityBackBullets. They out expand any bullet I have tested. Their 3 pedals create a Tri-Star wound the promotes bleeding like I've not experienced with other bullets.

www.cavitybackbullets....-s/107.htm

I've shot two elk with the 105 MKZ in my 6.8 out to 200 yards and they went down as fast as any elk I've shot with my .270.

Hope your Grendel works out well for you. I'm sure it will be very accurate.

The Grendel was designed as a military cartridge ...

Pkslinger, this is what the Grendel promoters say while they trash everything else. Why would a cartridge designed for the military have such a low SAAMI chamber pressure.

From what I'm reading it works well on deer at any distance I'm likely to shoot and on varmints WAY out there.

More advertising. Would you say the same of the .243? The Grendel is short of .243 performance. Right now, anything with 6.5 in front of it is a hot item with the popularity of the Creedmoor.


well said Slim

Just so one doesn't think the 6.8mm is a short range rifle, other 6.8mm hunters using the MKZs have shot deer DRT at 300 yards with 12" barrels and elk to 400 yards with 20" barrels. Pkslinger, I do hope you give these bullets a try.

Picked up another insightful tidbit. Half of all the 6.8mm barrels AR-15 Performance sells got to Texas. Texas is where hog populations are the thickest and out of control.
