Bought some of these from Chad earlier this year and just started working up loads yesterday for the boltaction Grendel with them and Hornady SST. They are looking good so far, in this rifle the best groups have been about 3/4 inch with 123gr Amax but these beat that easily.




Will have to stretch it out to decide on load for it, but the 2 3 shot groups with 30gr of CFE223 on the upper right orange dot and above it look pretty dang good. Other than a couple bad shots by me all loads tested shot 3 shot groups around 1/2 inch or a little less.

What are you getting for velocity out of the Grendel in a bolt action

Battery died in crono and didn't have a spare that trip only round measured was almost spot on with quickload prediction. That target should be in the neighborhood of 2525 to 2600fps for those loads but will verify next trip. Ran Quickloads for the 123gr Amax for a guy on another forum and it predicted within 15fps of his measured velocities with the same powder.

I had taken the cheek pad off the rifle, provides a better cheek weld. With it I expect a little better shooting from me. Also this was just my second time to shoot since November so a little rusty.

Those loads were in new Lapua brass so hope it will be a little better with neck sized brass. decided for now to keep the Hornady brass for the AR and Lapua for the boltaction to easily keep loads for each gun easy to distinguish

Might bump the shoulder back but the spent cases chamber fine without sizing so might just neck size for the next loads.
