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.

This is an affordably priced 6.5 Creedmoor cartridge from Sellier & Bellot, although its attractive price tag certainly doesn’t denote some deficit in its accuracy. It’s outfitted with a 140 grain projectile, which is jacketed with a copper alloy that is highly resistant to cracking or deformation. That enables it to keep its streamlined form under the heavy pressures it’s exposed to during ignition. This bullet’s jacket encompasses even its base, which is angled into a boat tail. The bullet’s tapered base measurably improves its ballistic coefficient to improve its accuracy, so this round’s as poised to let you win a match as it is to let you make the best of your time while you’re perforating very distant targets.
Its Czech manufacturer gave this round a factory fresh brass casing, which is more than worthy of multiple reloads. Its Boxer primer is non-corrosive, and its propellant is clean burning -- together they’ll keep your rifle more accurate longer in between cleanings.

This 6.5 Creedmoor round by Sellier & Bellot is going to serve you well this coming deer season. It fires a 140 grain soft point bullet at a muzzle velocity of 2,657 fps, which is conventional for that weight. This bullet’s copper-zinc alloy jacket is hard enough to prevent rapid barrel leading, as well as to inhibit deformation and promote penetration through any number of hides. With enough oomph behind it, the bullet’s exposed core will deform, topple around, and otherwise do things that you wouldn’t want to happen near any of your vital organs. Have them happen to a buck’s vital organs instead!
We’ve always been impressed by just how well Sellier & Bellot knows their business. You get a lot of consistency for a good price from the old Czech manufacturer, so these rounds have got excellent brass casings, clean burning primers, and charges that produce a consistent muzzle velocity. Handy things to have on hand for most any kind of hunting.

Hornady makes this 6.5 Creedmoor cartridge with accuracy in mind, and they achieve that end perfectly thanks to the round’s 147 grain ELD Match projectile. The ELD Match’s ballistic coefficient is through the roof thanks not only to its boat tail design, but also its extremely concentric AMP jacket which improves its rotational stability as well as its streamlined secant ogive profile. The bullet’s Heat Shield polymer tip even further optimizes its shape for flight, and because it is not susceptible to the effects of aerodynamic heating it will maintain its pointed meplat no matter the velocities it achieves.
2019 marked Hornady’s 90th year in business, a feat they’d never have accomplished without their admirable track record of delivering shooters the goods. These rounds’ brass casings have been specially selected for the uniformity of their dimensions, and their propellant creates the pressure and velocity that are optimal for their caliber. "Ten bullets through one hole” -- that’s Hornady’s company motto, and one you can very well bring to life with these 20 rounds.

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.
