The nearly twenty-year-old 6.5 Grendel caliber has not had an easy time establishing itself as the new intermediate cartridge for the AR-15 platform. Factory ammunition is therefore scarce. For all those who rely on this ammo, it should be interesting to learn that Sellier & Bellot has now taken up this particular cartridge again. According to the manufacturer, the 8 g/124 grain full metal jacket bullet achieves a velocity of around 780 m/s from a 23.6”/600 mm barrel. The new load is available in the handy 20-round box.
The much more popular .223 Remington is also being introduced by Sellier & Bellot with a new load. The 4.5 g/69 grains FMJ bullet brings it to around 900 m/s from a 20”/508 mm barrel. Unlike the equally heavy match cartridge with HPBT bullet, the full metal jacket load comes in the 50-cartridge box. The full metal jacket bullet can be an alternative especially where match bullets are not allowed on the firing line.
Finally, a little glimpse into the future that the EU is increasingly offering us in terms of ammunition: the eXergy Blue series of lead-free hunting cartridges will be expanded to include .270 Win., 9.3x62 and 9.3x74R calibers. We will keep you informed on how the new loads will perform in practice.
