6.5 Creedmoor ammo has gained an incredible following since the Nebraska-based Hornady introduced it in 2008. According to the ammo company, the idea of 6.5 Creedmoor ammunition emerged during a casual conversation at an elite shooting match.6.5MM CREEDMOOR IN STOCK. Those involved in the discussion expressed a desire to create a match-grade cartridge from the ground up. It would be the first of its kind. Months later, Hornady released the 6.5 Creedmoor round. Since then, the cartridge has become wildly popular among long-distance target shooters and hunters worldwide.

While performance varies depending on cartridge features, 6.5 Creedmoor bullets do not disappoint. With a 95-grain bullet, 6.5 Creedmoor delivers a muzzle velocity of 3,300 feet-per-second with 2,297 foot-pounds of energy. At 140 grains, the 6.5mm round has a muzzle velocity of 2,710 fps with 2,283 ft-lbs of energy. Using 6.5 Creedmoor for hunting purposes, the round is suitable for a variety of game including prairie dogs, coyotes, deer, and even elk.

When the 6.5 Creedmoor was introduced in 2008 it was just another cartridge intended for long-range competition. But six years later, the movie American Sniper came out, and suddenly everyone wanted to be a sniper. Or, at least, a pretend sniper. That is, until they spent all day behind a .300 Winchester Magnum. With recoil like a Connor McGregor punch, the .300 Win Mag pushed these new millennial marksmen to the recently introduced and lighter-recoiling 6.5 Creedmoor.6.5mm creedmoor ammo

In the end, all the hype around the 6.5 Creedmoor is really nothing but the combination of newness and a century of respectable performance established by other 6.5mm cartridges.6.5mm creedmoor ammo for sale. The Creed can only do what the ballistics say it can do, and like every other cartridge, it requires that you do your job. I took one to Newfoundland and shot a woodland caribou. A bad first shot required two more. I was embarrassed. I also made a bad shot on a moose and had to shoot him three more times. That really embarrassed me. Finally, to cap off a week of Chris Kyle-like marksmanship, I made another bad shot on a 350-pound black bear. I had to dig his growling mass out of pines so thick you couldn’t turn around. I prudently shot him in the head at 30 feet; it was the best shot I’d made all week.hornady precision hunter 6.5mm

That fact is that there’s nothing magical about 6.5 Creedmoor. There’s no single task it can do that another 6.5mm cartridge cannot do better. That’s partly why the 6.5 Creedmoor sucks. But the main reason, the real reason, the 6.5 Creedmoor sucks, is because if you want to do everything discussed here with only one factory rifle, and with factory ammo, the 6.5 Creedmoor might be the only rifle you need. And there’s nothing, absolutely nothing, that sucks more than only needing one rifle!  6.5mm creedmoor
