Hornady 6.5 Creedmore Rifle Ammunition
Hornady’s new 6.5 Creedmoor is as pedigreed as it is precise. Developed by Dave Emary, Hornady’s Senior Ballistic Scientist and Dennis DeMille, General Manager of Creedmoor® Sports and two-time NRA National High Power Rifle Champion, this cartridge has more pedigree than any other match cartridge on the market.
The 6.5 Creedmoor was designed to allow any shooter to compete at the highest level with factory-loaded ammunition. Built for match rifles, including the Creedmoor Sports CSF-1 Tubb 2000 and DPMS LR Series, its case is slightly shorter than the 260 Remington, eliminating any “Cartridge Overall Length” issues when using 308 Winchester length magazines.
A sharper 30° shoulder and aggressive body taper allow the 6.5 Creedmoor to deliver higher velocities than other 6mm and 6.5mm cartridges. And yet it operates at standard 308 Winchester pressures, thus increasing barrel and case life. Coupled with these velocities and these bullets, Hornady has developed a round that is flat shooting, wind defying and extremely accurate. The 6.5 Creedmoor is the ultimate match cartridge.
