The 6.5 Creedmoor, or 6.5 CM, is a rising star in the long range, short action rifle realm. It was produced in 2008 by Hornady and became an immediate favorite. 6.5 Creedmoor ammo utilizes a common bolt face that makes building a customized rifle very easy. The use of a 6.5 projectile gives the cartridge an excellent ballistic coefficient and 6.5 rounds tend to have a high sectional density.
The 6.5 Creedmoor can reach similar velocities and muzzle energies as the 300 Winchester Magnum. It does this with less overall recoil and in a short action rifle. The 6.5 Creedmoor has found acceptance with both competitive shooters and hunters. Hunters prefer the round due to its power and accuracy. Competition shooters love its consistency and its long-range accuracy. In fact, in the hands of professional shooters it can maintain a sub MOA group size out to 1,000 yards.
What’s your goal with the 6.5 Creedmoor? To take a whitetail at a few hundred yards, or to ring steel at 1,000 yards? Once you’ve answered that question check out Ammunition Depots selection of 6.5 Creedmoor ammo. We carry ammo for every occasion, and our competitive pricing is hard to beat.
