I have another cartridge comparison for you today where we’ll compare the 6.5 Grendel and 300 Blackout. Both are effective and popular cartridges, especially among those who like to hunt or shoot with the AR-15 platform. Though there’s some overlap in their capabilities, you’ll learn here shortly that there’s a pretty significant divergence in what they’re best suited for. In this episode, I investigate the 6.5 Grendel vs 300 Blackout debate in detail and provide some insight into which cartridge is better suited for common hunting situations so you can make an informed decision on which one will work best for your individual needs.
