CZ will finally be chambering some of the 527 mini-mauser rifles in 6.5 Grendel. Guess the introduction of a boltaction Grendel by Howa last year got them to go ahead with something that has been requested by their customers for about 8 years. I see it is listed on their website in the American and Rustic models

There is still some issue there Ed but they did address it a little with a different shape on the bolt aka like James Calhoon offers with his 19 caliber conversions which helps

That is great news! I have always wanted to build one but just haven't had the time. Will be looking for when they hit the market. They ought to sell a ton of them.

No, what you need is $25 to pay for a membership instead of spamming your way to 101 posts thinking you'd be allowed to post in the classifieds now..

Maximizing performance with high BC 6.5mm bullets in the AR-15 platform..... I get it.

Putting it in a bolt action when you could be sending those same bullets with a lot more velocity? I don't get that.

Just wondering if you like and have a 26 Nosler or 264 Win Mag? If not you are leaving performance on the table for 6.5 diameter bullets. If you are a fan of the medium velocity 6.5s you are not getting all you can from those same bullets either.

I'll add that the M527 is a dandy little rifle to shoot and carry. Chambering it in the 6.5 G is icing on the cake. The low recoil and decent performance will make this rifle a great choice for youth or women alike.

Most hunters shoot 100-200 yards max at a feeder. And some people don't like unnecessary recoil, me included. I started with a 243 and went up the ladder to a 300 WSM and then back down again to the 243. It does all I could ask for and I shoot it really well. The Grendel in a bolt would be a sweet little rig and one my kids could start out with for deer.

Your kid couldn't start with a .243? I got mine at age 10.

Well of course they could. Is your argument against the 6.5G or against all new cartriges all together?

I would prefer a 6.5G, bigger bullet with less recoil and plenty of umph to get the job done within normal hunting ranges.
