The acronym “Grendel” is inspired by the mythical monster antagonist from the Old English epic poem “Beowulf”. The 6.5mm Grendel cartridge is a high-precision, low-recoil round specially designed for long and medium-range shooting from 200 – 800 yards and some instances above using an AR-15 platform. This load is versatile and has expanded to other platforms, including the Kalashnikov system and bolt-action firearms. Shop in our store today for the best offers.


Bill Alexander and Janne Pohjoispaa jointly created the 6.5 Grendel Ammo. This load was unveiled and tested in 2003 at the Blackwater Training Facility in North Carolina, where it remained supersonic at 1,200 yards (1,100 m) range and out-shot the 7.62mm NATO with only half the recoil. The main aim behind the invention of this cartridge was to create an effective STANAG magazine-length load for the AR-15 platform that could shoot at a range beyond 800 yards that is above 730m and with performance above the 223 Remington/5.56mm NATO round. This cartridge faced difficulties being accepted in the community of hunters for several reasons, one being that Alexander trademarked the name of the load. To solve the problem mentioned earlier, Alexander Bill in 2011 relinquished the trademark when the load gained SAAMI approval, enabling other companies to produce barrels, ammo with the acronym 6.5 Grendel Ammo.

Given the tight restriction of STANAG magazine size, the Grendel designer opted for a shorter, wider case to fit more powder while leaving space for its long, high ballistic coefficient 65mm rounds. The weight of this load ranges from 90 gr to 130 gr with muzzle velocity ranging between 2300 ft/s for the 129 gr and 130 gr and 2900 ft/s muzzle velocity for the 77 and 90 gr round. The 6.5 Grendel round can weigh anywhere from 227 to 275 grains depending on the case material and bullet weight.


The 6.5 Grendel load is a cartridge used by individuals, law enforcement, and hunters for long to medium-range targeting with great precision. This load is excellent for tactical shooting, big game, and varmint hunting.
