6.5 Grendel

I would like to see what loads are working the best for the AR in 6.5 Grendel.
Do we have anybody working loads up on here.
So far we have not found a combination that gets near 1/2 MOA in the AR.
(AR has a 24" ss Bull Barrel)

Thanks

Thanks

Seems to be more thoughts than actual good data.
Some of the loads we have tried are very disappointing for accuracy.
Seems nobody can actually settle on safe Max loads for the AR platform!
Sounds like we'll need to spend the time and hope AA's max loads are correct.

To show what I am talking about here is one quote we found a while back.

.................................................. ........
Careful with this load and other AA load data. According to some members over at the Grendel forum AA loads have been pressure tested by Hornady and deemed "over pressure" and "unsafe". tread lightly and be safe. Some are even experiencing broken bolts with these loads.
.................................................. ........


The AR works at lower preasures so looking for signs on the fired brass is not an option.
I need to get Hornady's Data.

I'm running a 6.5 Grendel and use Hornady 123gr A-Max with AR-Comp, Lapua Brass, and Wolf Small Rifle Magnum Primers. Dont have the load info in front of me but it is easily 1/2 MOA at 100yds. I tried Sierra 123gr SMK but they shot horrible.

6.5G needs a long COAL and all I could muster was 2.275" but now that I got a couple of PRI Gen3 6.8 Mags they'll let me load to 2.300-2.320". I'm goimg to work up some loads to test this Saturday. I'll post results.

Other powders to try are 8208 XBR and CFE.
