Two does. One a neck shot at 80 yards and one a behind the shoulder shot at about 250. Neck shot dropped obviously. The other one took two crawling leaps and piled up. Bullet was the 100 grain nos ballistic tip that according to the book ( I didn't chrono it) should be going about 2700fps.

I had a chance to get a Grendel upper at an LGS near me a few years ago, but at the time I was looking for 300BLK. I am trying to keep from getting any new calibers ATM, but if I did I think I would consider this or the 6.8 SPC.

Neck shot left a big hole in the back of the neck. The one at 250 had massive internal damage and no exit. Ill shoot a few more with it before I pass final judgement on that bullet.

Sounds like you found the ticket with that combo. There are not so many positive outcomes with factory ammo, myself included, but those are with the 123sst.

A buddy has the 6.8spc that is magic as well. Iirc he is using Sierra GK and bang flops every trigger pull.

Congrats on your successes!
