Looking for another AR (yeah i really don't need another lol) out of the 3 listed above which would you choose for superb accuracy and wind bucking ability for coyotes here in wyoming. I won't be using it for much other than coyote hunting. thanks bryan

I really like my alexander Arms 24" 6.5 Grendel.
I Only shoot and let lay on yotes.
Don't expect much fur friendly out of 6.5 or 25wssm or 243wssm.

I am loving my Grendel but any of the 3 would be hammers on them.

The Grendel or 25 have the choice of heavier bullets so that might give either one of those a little better advantages burking the wind.

New Fontier built mine with a 24" Black Hole barrel and it drives tacks. and was a great price for such a great shooter.

I have a review on it a few post down if you want to check it out.

If you have any question about the Grendel feel free to shoot me a PM i will be happy to give you any info i can . Thanks Billy

I am more of the proponent of the flat-shooting, high to medium B.C. bullets, with high velocity VS. the idea of lobbing High B.C. bullets, i.e. 6.5 Grendel. I prefer the 243 WSSM with a standard twist using a 75gr-95gr 6mm bullet or even an 8-twist barrel if you want the 105gr, High B.C. bullets that remain very flat out of the 243 WSSM.

I have a 25 WSSM upper and I love it. I have a 6.5 on it's way, and I'm still looking for a 243 WSSM upper.

Just substitute "and" for the "vs". The only thing better than one of them, would be all three! That's all I have to say about that.

Merry Christmas

Well Ok, I never could get both of my Grendels to shoot as well as I wanted them to, so I went with a 6.5 WSSM, so I do not really need a 25 WSSM. The day I got the 6.5 WSSM it shot better then my Grendels ever did. With the 243 WSSM’s I opted for 8-twist barrels, so it is like loading for a different caliber uppers (8-twist barrels & 10-twist barrels) but I can interchange the brass. LOL. laugh

The .264LBC (6.5 Grendel) is gonna be plenty of rifle for me, I can shoot a 107 Sierra HPBT at a little over 2800 fps. Thats pretty close ballistically to a .243 Win and in an AR15 platform. I know the wssm's are capable of much better Velocity. But the 6.5mm bullet has a ton of sectional density and will be a stone cold killer and shoot plenty flat till I get up over 120 grain pills...

The Grendel is a superbly designed cartridge IMHO.

The 264 LBC-AR is going to be the serious player that the Grendel should have been.

I am pretty sure that there well be alot of factory ammo offerings in the future for it.

I don't see how it can't be. It's a truely powerful intermediate cartridge, the I can get 15 rounds in what would be a 7 round wssm mag. The .264LBC is what the 6.8 SPC should have been...

I have two grendels and I really enjoy loading and shooting them. Have taken a couple deer now also with my Grendel's. I have one with a 18" kreiger barrel and other is a 22" black hole barrel. Both have excellent accuracy.
