6.5 Creedmoor Ammo
6.5 Creedmoor ammo was launched in 2007 by Hornady and has seen a wide following develop over the years since it's initial launch. It is an excellent long-range rifle load with sub-moa accuracy out to 1,000 yards and has a growing number of ammo manufacturers now commercially loading it. This load is designed for both short-action bolt rifles as well as AR-10 semi-autos.

Precision competitors will love these rounds for match use or range days when a new scope needs to be zeroed. This 6.5mm Creedmoor ammunition is made by Winchester using their own original components; these include reloadable brass casings that have been inspected to ensure consistent outer dimensions and flash channels with correct diameters. Each casing is outfitted with one of Winchester's reliably igniting Boxer primers which lends a spark of flame to a measure of powder that burns efficiently for optimal muzzle velocity. This load profile is finished using a 140-grain BTHP (boat-tail hollow point) projectile.
140 grains is one of the heavier classifications of loads originally developed by Hornady when they invented the 6.5mm Creedmoor caliber; that means that these loads will follow well-established drop tables for easy ranging. BTHP bullets are highly accurate at a distance due to their construction method which calls for feeding lead into a pre-formed copper jacket, resulting in a uniform shape, core density, and overall balance. The tight meplat and tapered rear help resist drag in-flight for remarkable stability all the way to the target.

When it comes to hunting ammunition, you should never have to sacrifice exceptional accuracy for devastating terminal performance, or vice versa. This 6.5 Creedmoor cartridge from Hornady’s Precision line of ammunition offers both in spades thanks to its technologically advanced ELD-X projectile. The 143 grain bullet features a Heat Shield tip which is virtually immutable by aerodynamic heating, so it will maintain its pointed shape even as it exits your muzzle at a velocity of 2,700 fps. Along with its tip this bullet’s boat tail design, highly concentric jacket, and secant ogive profile work together to create the extraordinarily flat trajectory you need for pinpoint accurate shots.
When this bullet strikes targets at higher velocities, its InterLock ring and thick jacket shank assure weight retention of up to 60 percent. At lower velocities, its polymer tip initiates violent yet controlled expansion along with deep penetration and up to 90 percent weight retention. Its tremendous versatility makes this the round to count on the next time you venture into big buck country.
