Comparing my 18" JP grendel barrel with my favorite LR load, 123 Lapua scenar at 2450fpsA bit off topic but interested in opinions from those that have both. I already have a 6.5 Grendel. Reasons why I might consider a .224V?
18" Rock Creek Valkyrie with a good 90 smk node located at 2680fps
The Valkyrie shoots a little over 2 mils flatter at 1k while needing .3 mil less correction using the same environmental data.
I'm still working on the 95smk with my valkyrie and if I can get it to work well with a temperature insensitive powder it will be even more awesome.
I've also got a 6mm grendel and using temperature insensitive powders with the 105's I have yet to break 2550fps with out pressure signs, and that is from a 20" barrel. But using that velocity with the 105 Berger Hybrid for the above comparison, it would match My 18" Valkyrie in the wind yet still require .8mils more elevation.
The Tac 6 intrigues me... if for no other reason as it would make a more reliable hunting rifle. I love my grendel's but anytime I run a mag containing more the 10-12 rounds, feeding becomes troublesome. Is anyone chambering this is a premium custom stainless barrel, non-nitrided?
