If you are looking for the latest in ammunition offerings, look no further than for big game this fall. Granted, it is not out today, but it will be soon.

  1. Since I am, basically, just a white-tailed deer hunter, my 6.5 Grendel is just fine as a hunting rifle with a 120 grain soft point bullet. Since one can ‘punch paper” out to 800 yards and it has little to no recoil with the Vais muzzle brake, it is an excellent hunting rifle. Of course one hardly ever kills a deer beyond 50 to 75 yards so the distance to which it is accurate is moot.
