Does Your AR-15 Identify As A 6.5 Grendel?:
Converting Your .223 AR-15 to 6.5 Grendel
AR-15s are popular rifles, and yes — they are legal to hunt with (in most states). These rifles offer a wide range of advantages, whether you're out hunting deer or looking for smaller game during the off-season. The popularity of the AR-15 has spread to casual shooters and hunters—especially deer hunters. The 6.5 Grendel hit the market in 2002, and has really taken off. With a “short-fat” casing, the 6.5 Grendel is able to make up for the shortcomings of the .223 Rem. Originally designed as a combat round, the 6.5 Grendel was found to provide great penetration through the hide of a deer and beyond. Many .22-caliber rounds will deflect when hitting bone, but the 6.5 Grendel is large enough, and retains enough energy, to push through. It could be argued that the 6.5 Grendel is the ideal medium-range AR-15 for medium-to-large game.
