    I like the idea of keeping the 6.5x55, but 223 so much easier to run than Hornet..I got sick of the fiddly fragile cases....

    In my experience the grendel is not a replacement for the 223. They are quite different. I have found that the 6.5g on small critters makes a lot of mess. It also has quite a lot of drop ado not as good for varmints.
    I would drop the 22hornet and the 243. The 06 is your range gun. The 55 is you red stag gun. The grendel is your fun gun that can do a bit of everything.

    I would have either as there is only 50fps in it.

    I'll give you a very good reason to keep that .243. Money. Have you seen how cheap the projectiles are? Way better value for plinking. You can use it hunting up reasonably close as well.
    Now i like 6.5s too, but the .243 is an underated rifle to reload for.
    Btw i reckon the rifle you want may be a 6.5saum. Or the 7.
    Personally im liking the cm more and more eh. It cops heaps but just try competing against them. I gotta admit i think its a pretty awesome target cal and it can lob 147s...

    Here’s my 2c:
    -sell the 6.5-06. The Swede is pretty close performance-wise, but with less recoil and barrel wear
    -sell the Grendel. Not a great choice for varminting (rainbow trajectory). And for general meat hunting (ie tipping over spikers and the like out to 300yd) I prefer the 243
    -sell the Hornet. The 223 is superior for varminting and the .22 has you covered for plinking and small game out to 100yd
