It’s time to start finalizing my 2020 deer hunting load. I have chosen 6.5 Grendel and the 120gr Speer Gold Dot. The test powders I want to start with are AR-Comp, Power-Pro Varmint and H4895.

Post scope mount issue (I hope), good results at the range with Power Pro 2000-MR and 120gr ELD’s. Hazzbro’s HideReloader, shooter, flintlock builder
This time leaving the Harrell’s tuner break set at 75 and using CFE and Shooter’s World Match Rifle with Hornady 95gr ELD’s. Frustrating start till I finally find the issue with dropped shots! Hazzbro’s HideReloader, shooter, flintlock builder
Initial testing of the Harrell’s Tuner Brake using a couple of loads. Interesting results with 95gr & 120gr ELD match bullets, 8208 XBR, Shooter’s World Match Powders, and the Wilson Combat Super Sniper 22″ barrel. Hazzbro’s HideReloader, shooter, flintlock builder
Reloading and range time with the lightest bullets tried yet in the 6.5mm Grendel. Good results and impressive velocities with 8208 XBR and Shooter’s World Match Rifle powders. The Wilson Combat Super Sniper Barrel seems to really like the 95gr Hornady Vmax Bullets. Also shown before and after cleaning Teslong borescope videos. Hazzbro’s HideReloader, shooter, […]
Reloading and Range time with the Wilson Combat 22″ 6.5 Grendel Super Sniper barreled rifle using Hornady 120gr ELD’s (H322 powder) and Sierra Matchking 123gr bullets (Varmint and AR Comp). Good results with more fine tuning to be done. Hazzbro’s HideReloader, shooter, flintlock builder
The winner of the Great Grendel Giveaway BCA Barrel is...
Next up with the newly barreled Wilson Combat 22″ super sniper 6.5mm Grendel is H322 and 8208XBR powders pushing Hornady 120 grain ELD’s with CCI 41 primers. Pretty good results with more potential improvement! Updates to the rifle include a Vortex Anti-Cant bubble level and a Radical Firearms Nada Zero Impulse Muzzle Brake. Hazzbro’s HideReloader, […]
Next up in the load development is Midsouth Match Monster 123gr bullets with RL15 and Varget Powders. Odd target but one of the best loads yet found using the Wilson Combat Super Sniper 6.5 Grendel barrel. Hazzbro’s HideReloader, shooter, flintlock builder

Thanks to my wonderful wife I was able to swap out the BCA barrel for a Wilson Combat 22″ Super Sniper Barrel! Initial “Break in”/rounds and then on to some initial testing. Improved results with previously fired loads and FINALLY Sub-MOA results!!!!! Hazzbro’s HideReloader, shooter, flintlock builder
Checking and testing rounds near the maximum cartridge overall length. The very last straw before a major change! Hazzbro’s HideReloader, shooter, flintlock builder
Throwing the kitchen sink at the Bear Creek Arsenal barrel. Many things tried from powder to bullet to primer combos, muzzle brake change for Hhrmonics, receiver lapping, barrel bedding, etc. Final conclusion and future direction for the BCA 6.5 Grendel barrel.

Short video with slow motion showing the case rotation as it ejects. I was having dented case mouths until I installed a Deflector Brake. I see much more wear on the Deflector Brake in 6.5 Grendel than on my other 5.56 rifles. This video shows why. Hazzbro’s HideReloader, shooter, flintlock builder
Going to even more extremes in search of accuracy with an inexpensive barrel - Reveiver Lapping, Bedding, New scales put to use, and Power Pro Varmint!
