The Little Grendel that could.

Recommended Posts

My 12 in Grendel pistol claimed it's first victim. 186 yds she took 2 steps and fell over. Hornady Black eld's did a great job.

There is nothing wrong with the hind legs that is just blood from field dressing her.

sure speaks volumes for the caliber and platform, great job!

It's ridiculously impressive, brother...  Insane cartridge capability. 

Oh, and that was Match Ammo that killed that deer.   :thumbup:   I'm thinking about tossing this information into that thread...

I moved up to a .308 because my Grendel failed to pass thru a deer hit in the shoulder area at 30 yds.  There was no blood trail and it was never found in the thick brush.  Read the Grendel forum and you will see this is not unusual.  A Grendle is fine if the animal drops in it's track but don't count on following a blood trail.

A lot of people are using Match ammo to hunt with in the Grendel.  That stuff is made to splat when it hits something hard (steel plate, shoulder bone?).  The use of hunting bullets would probably eliminate a lot of those lost deer.  Or getting over the 30-06 habit of blowing away both shoulders to drop a deer.
