Default CZ Model 527 6.5 Grendel

A new CZ 527 American in 6.5 Grendel has been waiting in my safe for a scope and some trigger time. Tonight I finally decided to put a 3.5-10 Leupold VX-3 with target turrets on it. I would prefer a 4.5-14X or a 4-12X without turrets, but being gun-poor as always I will put the 3.5-10X in Talley rings and fool around with it until I decide whether it needs more magnification (and $$$). Hundreds of Sierra 100gr and 85gr HPs were found in my 6.5 bullet crate, along with six hundred Speer 100gr HPs. Those should red mist the gophers and rockchucks, and pop coyotes out to 350 yards. For deer I think the 120gr Nosler solid base and Speer 120gr SPs should do well. I thought I would use 95gr VMax Hornady for rodents and 125gr Nosler Partitions for deer and possibly black bear (both bullets were super in my .260 Rem), but why not wait and see how the bullets I already have perform?

Is it a precision varmint rifle with a larger, slower bullet than a typical .223, .204, 22-250, 17 Hornet, or a lightweight general purpose mini mauser sporter? This spring will tell. What's the Grendel? Here's an intro:

This review went well...although his offhand 200 yard group looks suspiciously tiny. If mine shoots that well I will be elated.

An M1D! Nice, and quite valuable. Have you ever hit a critter with the 55gr Accelerator 30'06 from Remington? I've fired the .308 Accelerator round in my M1A, and all that is left are smithereens.
