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.

Aguila celebrated their 60th anniversary in 2021. They became Mexico’s foremost ammunition manufacturer during their time in business, and also earned a global reputation for the quality of their rimfire products. But Aguila is no stranger to centerfire ammo, either – as thoroughly evidenced by their 6.5 Creedmoor target loads!
This cartridge’s 140 grain projectile achieves a muzzle velocity of 2,600 fps. As an FMJBT it is equipped with the sleek nose profile and tapering base it needs to conserve superior velocity downrange, so you can anticipate precisely the flat and wind-resistant trajectory you need in order to hone your marksmanship.
Aguila was founded in Mexico in collaboration with Remington. They’re on their own now, but their ammunition still has all the hallmarks of an American-made round. As such this ammo features compliant nonmagnetic projectiles, 100% non-corrosive Boxer primers and factory fresh reloadable brass cases. A fine choice for any recreational shooting, and not remotely incapable of sending very small critters to go and see their maker.

Do you want a whole lot of 6.5 Creedmoor range ammo – but don’t want to spring for the whole case? We reckoned that might be your situation, which is why we put together this ten-box target shooter’s bundle of FMJBT ammo by Sellier & Bellot!
The full metal jacket boat tail is not a hunting bullet because it lacks any means to deliver terminal expansion – and it’s not the most accurate bullet you could possibly name, either. But if you’re just getting a little one-on-one time with your rifle at the range, you couldn’t ask for a bullet that delivers greater value.
Sellier & Bellot’s 140 grain FMJBT is completely nonmagnetic and ballistically efficient enough to hug a flat trajectory while simultaneously shrugging off wind drift. If you plan on firing off impressive shots over incredibly long distances, then a bullet which stays supersonic after passing 1,000 yards is just what the bullet doctor ordered!
Sellier & Bellot is headquartered in the Czech Republic, where they draw and cut their own high-quality reloadable brass cases and load sensitive non-corrosive Boxer primers and clean-burning propellant.

Sellier & Bellot didn’t design an overly complicated 6.5 Creedmoor cartridge for all the deer and boar hunters out there. They stuck to the basics when they gave this round its soft point projectile – but that’s all you really need to stick it to your quarry.
The no-frills soft point lacks a polymer tip and underlying nose cavity. Its ductile lead core is the first thing to connect with the beast, and that impact energy alone is enough to force the bullet to mushroom outward. The rate of deformation is kept in check by the soft point’s strong brass jacket, which additionally serves to keep the bullet from fragmenting apart under so much pressure. A hunting bullet that widens out quickly while penetrating deeply delivers spot-on terminal performance in our book.
Sellier & Bellot manufactures and loads consistent components. Their bullets all closely adhere to the same standard for weight. Those bullets’ jackets are evenly thick to provide in-flight balance, and their small boat tails promote higher-velocity impact over greater distances downrange. Sellier & Bellot loads their bullets with reloadable brass and non-corrosive primers in the Czech Republic.

Deer hunting is some of the greatest fun you can possibly have, and it only becomes better once you get about 50 pounds of meat in your freezer. But deer hunting is not very fun at all if you attempt to harvest your whitetail with a jackknife, tack hammer or your bare fists. Make life easy for yourself. Choose a 6.5 Creedmoor rifle instead.
And choose Sellier & Bellot’s 6.5 Creedmoor ammunition while you’re at it! This cartridge is loaded with the expanding soft point bullet you need to ethically anchor medium-size game. The accurate 140 grain SP projectile holds a flat trajectory and retains at least 1,000 ft lbs of kinetic energy until it crosses 450 yards. The SP’s brass jacket keeps the bullet intact enough to reliably burrow its way to the vital organs, and its ability to deform and tumble around during penetration spells bad news for any buck in the woods.
Sellier & Bellot is situated in Vlašim, Czech Republic, and they are world’s oldest continually operational ammo manufacturer. They serve military, law enforcement and private citizens across the world for all their ammo needs. When you see the S&B headstamp on a cartridge, you know you’re holding a nonmagnetic, non-corrosive, brass-cased and Boxer-primed example of the old European company’s fine work.

Are you looking for 6.5 Creedmoor ammunition that’ll drop bucks, but you don’t want to shell out extra for premium hunting bullets? Say no more, say no more! This cartridge is made in the Czech Republic by Sellier & Bellot, and it is loaded with the tried and true yet not overly sophisticated soft point projectile.
This round’s 131 grain SP operates on a simple principle: When the exposed lead in its nose meets resistance from soft tissue, it forces the bullet to mushroom outward while tumbling about inside said soft tissue. The SP’s copper alloy jacket is nonmagnetic, tough enough to ensure smooth feeding and deep penetration, and concentric enough to deliver good accuracy (0.389 G1 BC). The low-drag projectile reliably retains over 1,000 ft lbs of energy at 400 yards. Watch out Mr. Deer.
You can also employ this ammo for dehoggulation purposes, and it makes a fine solution for training the same way you would hunt at the range. Sellier & Bellot has spent nearly 200 years honing their production protocol. Their virgin brass cases and non-corrosive Boxer primers make their ammo both reliable and reloadable.

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.

To hunt the deer, you must become the deer. Wear a set of antlers and tape a white glove to your tailbone. But even though a deer would never order this 6.5 Creedmoor ammunition by Sellier & Bellot, we highly recommend that you do.
This round features a classic soft point. It’s nothing fancy because it doesn’t need to be – a soft point reliably expands to register a crippling wound channel, especially with the 6.5 Creedmoor’s power working for it.
This round’s 156 grain bullet leaves a 21.75” barrel at 2,444 fps. It remains just faster than 1,910 fps at 300 yards, at which point it still packs more than enough juice to ethically crumple a whitetail at 1,263 ft lbs. Sellier & Bellot jackets their soft point with a tough copper alloy, so it resists the urge to splinter apart as its exposed core mushrooms outward. You’ll likely find some fragmentation following high velocity impact, but the point is you will find it inside the deer you just put down.
Sellier & Bellot’s nonmagnetic bullet sits on a new brass case, so you can easily get 100 handloads out of this mere box of 20. The Czech producer’s non-corrosive primers won’t turn your rifle to rubbish if you don’t clean it out with hot water.
Worked in Africa and on Whitetail
Decided to use this ammo on a Safari to South Africa. Tested it on a Missouri Whitetail prior to Safari. Dropped everything I shot, the Zebra and Kudu were the only animals that went about 40 yards before collapsing.

Looking for precision 6.5 Creedmoor ammunition? Then you’ll definitely want to check out this Czech-made ammo by Sellier & Bellot. It’s loaded with the 142 grain hollow point boat tail you need to put holes through things – things that are very far away!
This round’s bullet has a lead core that perfectly conforms to the interior contours of its jacket. This is because an HPBT’s match jacket is created first and then filled with molten lead. The small opening in the bullet’s tip gave passage to the lead, which is why its base is fully jacketed. Hot propellant gasses cannot evaporate any lead off of the form-fitted lead core, thus preventing any deformation that could have impacted accuracy. The HPBT’s boat tail reduces drag to help the bullet retain more in-flight momentum as well as resist getting blown off-course by crosswinds.
The HPBT will deliver great accuracy – but it will not deliver terminal expansion. If you want to take this ammo hunting, stick to buck-toothed prey and you’ll be all right. Sellier & Bellot’s nonmagnetic bullet is carefully seated in a premium brass case, complete with the high-grade Boxer primer a reloadable round must have.

Federal American Eagle isn’t a match grade label, but this Minnesota-made 6.5 Creedmoor ammunition will still serve admirably during all your target shooting adventures!
This round’s 120 grain total metal jacket is an upgrade from the standard target load’s FMJ. Its lead core is totally enveloped by gilding metal, which prohibits white hot propellant gasses from gassifying any lead during ignition. A TMJ’s base remains undeformed to promote better accuracy, and it will also keep a barrel’s rifling cleaner and more effective at its job. A TMJ will also keep the air surrounding your face cleaner, so your range day won’t have a negative impact on your precious and irreplaceable lung meat.
Federal’s high-quality TMJ teams up with their clean-burning powder and sensitive primer to achieve a muzzle velocity of 2,900 fps and G1 ballistic coefficient of 0.406. The 100-year-old company mints the fine brass cases which cycle and chamber neatly, and which also become perfect for reloading as soon as they’re emptied!
Hornady American Whitetail 6.5 Creedmoor 129 Grain InterLock – 200 Rounds$359.85

This 6.5 Creedmoor cartridge by Hornady is just what your next deer hunting trip calls for, because it sports a 129 grain InterLock projectile. The bullet offers more reliable terminal performance than you’ll ever see from a conventional soft point, because its tapered jacket and inner grooves work together to ensure that devastating expansion always takes place, even at lower velocities. This is a bullet that burrows deeply as well -- its solid one-piece core retains a great deal of mass and doesn’t separate like a divided core would, and its cannelure and InterLock ring secure that core and its jacket tightly together.
The InterLock boasts a very high ballistic coefficient, as its secant ogive profile minimizes the drag that it creates in flight. That translates to a very flat a trajectory, improved resistance to cross winds, and more energy to inflict on impact downrange. With Hornady’s own premium brass casing, carefully formulated and weighed propellant, and sensitive Boxer primer to complement such a fine bullet’s performance, no buck will be outside your grasp.

Make the outcome of this coming deer season a sure thing with a round designed solely for bagging bucks. This American Whitetail 6.5 Creedmoor round by Hornady showcases its manufacturer’s 129 grain InterLock projectile, a soft point bullet with futuristic features. The bullet delivers outstanding weight retention owing not only to the raised ring inside its jacket from which it takes its name, but also its sturdy one-piece core and shank’s cannelure as well. The fashion in which the InterLock’s jacket is carefully tapered along with the interior grooves which strategically weaken it mean that this is the bullet you depend on to expand at essentially any velocity.
The InterLock boasts a staggering ballistic coefficient because of its secant ogive profile. Its unique geometry lessens the drag it incurs in flight, and in turn improves its downrange velocity, makes it less receptive to wind interference, and noticeably flattens its trajectory to make long shots easier to connect. This round’s brass casing has been selected by Hornady for the uniformity of its dimensions, and its primer is über responsive.

This 6.5 Creedmoor cartridge by Hornady features its manufacturer’s own 143 grain ELD-X projectile. Hailed as an incredibly effective means for all-distance hunting, the ELD-X makes short work of a far away target thanks to its ability to expand tremendously while retaining up to 90 percent of its weight for assured deep penetration. It’s efficacious at taking down nearer game thanks to its InterLock ring, which fights high velocity impact to ensure that it retains no less than half of its weight.
The ELD-X boasts the superior accuracy needed to hunt distant bucks as well. Its boat tail design and secant ogive profile both contribute to its high ballistic coefficient, and the latter additionally grants the bullet a lesser bearing surface. The ELD-X’s AMP jacket lends its great concentricity to the creation a flat trajectory, and its Heat Shield tip will not lose its pointed symmetry in response to aerodynamic heating. This round’s bullet is complemented splendidly by its high quality brass casing, consistent propellant’s performance, and sensitive primer. You’ll be pleased to have a whole case of this exciting ammo poised and ready to go for your upcoming hunts!

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.

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.

A lot of folks try out the 6.5 Creedmoor at the range and come to the same conclusion: “Hey! This would make a great hunting cartridge!” And they’re all perfectly correct. But you haven’t witnessed what the 6.5 Creedmoor is truly capable of until you’ve seen Browning’s BXS load in action.
This round showcases the 120 grain Solid Expansion: a monolithic hunting bullet. Copper bullets aren’t just great because they comply with certain jurisdictions’ lead bullet prohibitions. They also eliminate lead fouling of the barrel, spare the hunter from breathing aerosolized lead, and can’t deposit heavy metal inside of a game animal’s good meat.
The solid copper Solid Expansion hasn’t got a jacket that could possess a flaw in its concentricity. That alongside the bullet’s ballistically efficient profile and sharp, centered meplat heightens its ballistic coefficient to 0.450. When the Solid Expansion has completed its flat trajectory, it resists fragmentation to penetrate all the way to its target’s vital area. It also rapidly mushrooms throughout penetration to produce a wide wound cavity, thus delivering the deadly terminal ballistics you want while hunting.
This American-made ammunition is decked out with nickel-plated brass cases. Their smooth coatings help a semi-auto to cycle efficiently, and they also resist corrosion that could lead to a failure to feed or extract. Non-corrosive and reloadable, this ammo is all it takes to turn any 6.5 CM hunter into a copper fan!
