    I'm toying with the idea, down the road, of re barreling my CZ 527M/CSR into 6.5mm Grendel. Having said that, I also love to cast rifle bullets, and I know this is a relatively now caliber. Has anyone cast for this caliber? Powder coating might be the way to go, since it is a relatively fast round, I believe? Just casual questions, as this would be after a LOT of other bills/projects are paid for.

    I'm shooting 95 to 123 gr jacketed bullets anywhere from 2450 FPS to 2900 FPS. I'm not sure what kind of velocities you are considering. Having said that, I've done no casting for it and don't see myself doing so in the future.
