"Kool-Aid"??? Really?

You stack the deck using a tiny (64 grain) bullet with the lousiest BC you can find- .234- to support your position?

How about changing the flavor of your "Kool-Aid" and punch in the 123 grain Hornady SST with a .510 ballistic coefficient.

Kinda blows a hole in your "theory", huh?

And it'll blow a hole in a Whitetail at 600 yards, too...
I think this from Hornady's webpage kind of blows a hole in your theory about the effectiveness of the Grendel as a hunting round at 600yds as compared to a very well known hunting round...

The Grendel is not an ethical round for deer at 600yds...despite what you say...the numbers don't lie.

And, no ethical hunter that I know, would shoot a deer at 600yds with a .257WBM and it is clearly superior to the Grendel

And, this a .510BC 6.5 bullet compared to a .390BC 6.35 bullet(.257)
