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.

If you’re fixing on hunting a whole lot of deer with your 6.5 Creedmoor rifle, then here’s the 6.5 Creedmoor ammunition you need to get the job done. Sellier & Bellot has been in business since 1825, and their ammo makes a great choice if you’d like to train with the same cartridges that you would fire out in the field!
This cartridge’s 156 grain projectile is paired off with the clean-burning propellant charge it needs to achieve a 2,444 fps muzzle velocity out of a rifle’s 21-3/4” barrel. The bullet’s 0.456 G1 ballistic coefficient means that it will stay supersonic until about 932 yards, as well as retain at least 1,000 ft lbs until nearly 450 yards (the minimum often advised for ethical whitetail hunting).
The soft point bullet is nonmagnetic, with the brass jacket and lead core it needs to comply with all ranges’ ammo policies. Its brass jacket fortifies the bullet to ensure effectively deep penetration, and its bare lead tip produces fast and uniform expansion even at relatively low velocities.
Each cartridge in this bundle of ten boxes features a factory fresh brass case and Boxer primer. It’s reloadable, it’s noncorrosive – it’s made in the Czech Republic – and it will become yours fast thanks to our outstanding shipping department!

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.

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.

Sellier & Bellot 6.5 Creedmoor 142 Grain HPBT – 200 Rounds$269.85

You don’t need a frilly polymer-tipped bullet to pull off impressive long-range shots with your 6.5 Creedmoor rifle! You just need 200 rounds of Sellier & Bellot’s Czech-made tack drivers (and a good rifle; and skill).
This cartridge’s 142 grain hollow point boat tail bullet is a step up from the conventional full metal jacket, though. Its heightened jacket concentricity and uniformly distributed lead core both serve to keep the HPBT stable as it streaks toward its target, and its jacket’s ballistic profile and boat tail team up to minimize in-flight drag.
The HPBT would truly do a number on any varmint that’s unlucky enough to get in its way. That said, its nose cavity is not engineered to trigger expansion, so it’s not the ethical choice for harvesting whitetail or other medium-size game. You want a soft point or expanding polymer-tipped projectile for Bambi’s mom.
S&B recorded this nonmagnetic bullet’s 2,625 fps muzzle velocity with a 23.5” barrel. Under that condition it will exhibit a 0.553 G1/0.278 G7 ballistic coefficient. These precision rounds’ brass cases are noncorrosive Boxer-primed and durable enough to be reloaded a number of times!

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

The ancient Greek philosophers conceived that something like a perfectly straight line is a construct which can only exist in the human mind. Well, had they seen this 6.5 Creedmoor cartridge from Federal’s Gold Medal label in action, they might just have changed their minds. This round features Berger’s 130 grain Hybrid, an open tip match bullet with a core that has been poured into place within its jacket to give it exceptional stability in flight. The Hybrid blends both tangent and secant ogives so as to make it less sensitive to seating depth and lower its drag, but without suffering from either geometries’ shortcomings. If you’re shooting to impress, you couldn’t choose much better than a Hybrid for the job.
A Gold Medal round has a benchrest quality Gold Medal primer, super responsive to boost accuracy to a fare-thee-well. Federal’s best casing seats this round’s Hybrid with precise flatness, and their propellant ensures stable chamber pressures and muzzle velocities.

Whether you’re a fierce competitor or simply enjoy bringing your rifle’s true potential to life, you’ll love the straight line accuracy that this 6.5 Creedmoor cartridge by Hornady delivers. The round’s 147 grain ELD Match projectile features the Nebraskan manufacturer’s own Heat Shield tip, which shrugs off the effects of aerodynamic heating so that it may always preserve its perfectly symmetrical and pointed meplat. This bullet’s boat tail design improves its ballistic coefficient in order to flatten its accuracy and better immunize it against wind drift, its concentric AMP jacket keeps it stable in flight, and its overall aerodynamics are improved throughout courtesy of its secant ogive profile. Not a piece of this bullet doesn’t convey superior accuracy in some way.
As a Hornady, the rest of this round’s components are top notch as well. Its reloadable brass casing has incredibly uniform wall thickness, its primer is reliable and non-corrosive, and its propellant reliably delivers a fast muzzle velocity of 2,695 fps. Chamber this round and you could very well bring Hornady’s company motto to life: "Ten bullets through one hole."

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.
