6.5 Creedmoor Ammo For Sale!
The 6.5mm Creedmoor (6.5×48 mm), designated 6.5 Creedmoor by SAAMI, 6.5 Creedmoor by the C.I.P. or 6.5 CM or 6.5 CRDMR for short, is a centerfire rifle cartridge introduced by Hornady in 2007. It was developed by Hornady senior ballistics scientist Dave Emary in partnership with Dennis DeMille, the vice-president of product development at Creedmoor Sports, hence the name. The cartridge is a necked-down modification of the .30 Thompson Center.
The 6.5mm Creedmoor was designed specifically for long-range target shooting,although it has been used successfully in game hunting.Bullet-for-bullet, the 6.5mm Creedmoor achieves a slower muzzle velocity than longer cartridges such as the 6.5-284 Norma or magnum cartridges such as the 6.5mm Remington Magnum. However, due to its overall length of 2.825 inches (71.8 mm), it is capable of chambering in short-action rifles like the 6.5×47mm Lapua.
Introduced by Hornady in 2007, the 6.5 Creedmoor is among the best-selling 6.5mm cartridges for both hunting and target shooting. It's versatile, efficient, cost-effective, and low recoiling. It's a favorite deer and elk cartridge among the MeatEater crew, and it's taken enough big game to disprove initial doubters.
