    I have a 24" bull barrel upper in 6.5 g , it has a 1:9 twist. I recently got a pound of 8208 and was wondering if any other members have had success with this powder and maybe some good recipes to work off of?
    Thanks , tackdriver

    Funny you mention the grendal....I just spent my eve watching this guys youtube of him bulding a 6.5 grendel...also checked out his reloading and then shooting his loads...he used the 8208..maybe you could check them out and see if you can find anything out.

    He seems to be a laid back good ol'boy that likes to shoot and hunt.

    I shoot the 6mm AR Turbo Improved which is based off the 6.5 Grendel case and I use 8208 with my 107 Sie. Loads very accurate and not temp sensitive or high pressure at 2900 fps. ! Give it a try I suppose you are going to use it with 123 grain bullets?
