6,5 Grendel -possible reload


#1

Was given an unfired round and one empty case both Alexander Arms, both with powder residue on the neck.
HS: ALEX-A over 6.5 GREN, nickeled primer.
The unfired primer has a very slight indentation exactly in the middle, like a very slight firing pin mark and underneath that, a B, just under a millimetre high. Norma made primers in the old days with NP on them, where does this primer come from?
Projectile looks like a 123 grain SMK, that is one of the factory loads this caliber has been made with.

CCI BR-4 Small Rifle Bench Rest primer.

It is a reload then… Since this caliber is very AR-specific and therefore rare in this country (Semiautomatics are not allowed for competitive shooting, black rifles are frowned upon) it makes perfect sense. Thanks Ray.
