I am in the middle of a 6.5G build. I have been trying to find some ballistic data about the round. I have bullet drop info for all my other calibers. I just can't seem to find any info or charts that show what the bullet drop (in inches) would be for the 6.5 at 100, 200, 300, 400, 500, 600 .etc ... etc.

Anybody out there got any info??

Bullet?
Barrel length?
Altitude?
Etc.

All are important to know to get an even semi-accurate chart.

That is why you have your own log book. The factory published charts assume quite a lot. (std. temp, std. pressure, sea level, etc...)

Still, the OP asked.

I keep the 19.5" ballistics chart rolled up in the tube of the LMT SOPMOD stock. Makes for quick reference. Here's the whole thing.

http://www.alexanderarms.com/grendel_ballistics.pdf

If you reload yet, which I'd imagine you'll want to when shooting Grendel, you'll have to come up with some additional numbers should you begin to load anything heavier than the Hornady 129gr SST. I'm going to try some Sierra 140gr soon. Gotta start work on finding load information for a round like that for hunting season––-in November.....
