We're writing a short series dedicated to partially answering many of the questions about the history and utility of the Grendel. This handbook is a great resource for both beginning and advanced Grendel handlaoders.
This first volume focuses on history and touches on the Grendel's medium game hunting potential and target shooting . We also included handloading data from four significant commercial sources - Alexander Arms, Vihtavuori, Hodgdon, and Western Powders (Accurate and Ramshot). There are also several pages dedicated to personal notes and reloading data.
We have started research on the second volume and this one will have a stronger focus on the Grendel as a hunting cartridge. The load data for this volume will be mostly mined from the Grendel forum and other sources. We are looking at Competition Target shooting with the Grendel, Bolt Rifles and Grendel-Based wildcats as topics for future volumes.

Proceeds from handbook sales will also partially defray expenses for our research on the next volume. Volume II will concentrate on the Grendel as a hunting tool and will organize broad set of reloading data developed by the Grendel community. Look for a publishing announcement for this volume during the coming year.
