6.5 Grenade is very limited as there's no advantage to the smaller diameter case that requires a non-standard 0.440" boltface and will not stack properly in standard 308 sized magazines.
The smaller case dramatically limits the 6.5 Grenade's powder capacity and therefore the velocity and energy on target compared to the 6.5 Creedmoor.
It is a 6.5mm Grendel not a 6.5 Grenade
