    New to the Tremor3 reticle

    Hide-- I recently got a NF NX8 2.5-20 for my 6.5 Grendel hunting rig. The reticle is Tremor3, which I have not had before. Does anyone out there run a TRM3 with a 6.5 grendel and roughly a 20 inch barrel? If so, could someone explain what the windage dots represent for the caliber and what mil...

    I have started researching to build a 6.5 Grendel and am trying to decide on barrel length. I’ve been all over the Hornady website and other resources looking for the barrel length that they used to obtain their ballistics data (muzzle velocity mainly) and have been unable to find anything...

    6.5 grendel rifle advice

    I'm looking at getting a bolt action rifle in 6.5 grendel. The idea came to me when I was looking at a new AR upper in 6.5 grendel, I thought it would be fun to get a bolt action rifle in the same caliber. Now I like the idea so well, I want to get the bolt action rifle before the new upper. It...

    Help on pure precision 6.5 Grendel

    I'm hoping for some help from the Hide on finishing a pure precision ar grendel for a split hunting and competition build. I understand the instinct to give "the difference is negligible" and "it doesn't matter" responses, and generally I appreciate them. However, the fun of building an AR for...

    Problems with 6.5 Grendel (Accuracy & cycling issues) Need Help

    So I just built a 6.5 Grendel, bought the complete upper from Grendel Hunter (18" Mid Length) and I've taken it out to the range 4 times now. Every single time out it's had problems cycling and feeding the ammunition and the accuracy has been really bad. Sometimes the bolt doesn't want to lock...

    Grendel barrel life

    So I’m working on a 6.5 Grendel build. I’ve read that caliber is really hard on barrels. Can anyone out there tell me what to expect from experience? Any idea whether CrMoly or SS barrel would be better? Thnx.

    6x45mm vs 6.5 Grendel

    Hey guys I've been undecided on which to build and read a bit of the pros/con's of each. I have a couple lowers and was looking into a long range build for the range. Will be shooting steel/paper out to 600-700 yards max. If I already had a rifle length AR I would choose the 6x45, but I'm going...
