Howa has announced they will be bringing out the 6.5 Grendel mid year 2016 in their micro bolt action then later in the year the 7.62X39.



Perhaps this will also get CZ off their tails and produce the 527 in this fun little round.

I like it! I wonder which barrel I'd choose, too many choices.
I think I'd go with the 22"

20" lite
20" bull
22" regular profile

I'm shocked at the velocity they get out of that short little round. Very cool.

Well hopefully can make it an accurate one since they haven't figured why their 6.5x55 aren't?

Brilliant. Great little round for Texas game and youth hunters.

I loaded up some 100 gr Partitions with a max load of XBR and couldn't believe my eyes when the chronograph showed an average of 2942 fps. That's fast for that little case.

My boy will be looking for his first deer in the morning with my Grendel. I'm more excited than if I was doing the shooting!

Yeah, I googled it when I first heard of it and thought to myself "great another top heavy slow poke" when I saw the ammo.

After I read the ballistics I had to rub my eyes.

.

Can get a little better velocity from a boltaction rifle than an AR, no gas tax. But yes those velocities are doable, fastest I have run mine with a 22 inch barrel is 2700 with a 123gr SST bullet but that was what I considered a little too hot and stopped there, started sticky bolt lift there so backed off .5 gr powder for the max I would ever workup, .6gr below that is in an accuracy node so happy with 2650 with that bullet..

Not bad for less than 30gr of powder, and could get a little more with a different powder that I do not have as much of.

I sure hope it feeds good and the magazine stays put when firing - seen some strange stuff with the Savage B-mag, Keltec RDB, and Remington R51 that makes me scratch my head and hesitate to be an early adopter of new released guns.

Crossing my Bacon Strips and hoping for the best

I'd love CZ and Remington come out with a bolt gun. I love my 6.5G AR...
