If you guys have not noticed theres been a series of complaints on various forums that some Hornady ammo is hot. People are noting pierced primers and flat primers. At the same time people are starting to complain about broken bolts. The two things are probably related but not all bolts are the same. Also not all chambers will tolerate the higher pressures with the hot ammo equally either. If a chamber has a shorter throat the hotter loads will be more problematic. I recommend a Maxim Firearms bolt for your grendel they have bolt making down. Its not just to ensure your bolt is made of 9310 steel the heat treat has to be correct or the bolt can be brittle.

Grendel II chambers will also be more tolerate of hotter loads. IMO a Grendel II matched with a Maxim Bolt is the best way to roll with these variances in ammo.
