The 6.5 Creedmoor: A Long-Range Menace

When shooting past a thousand yards, your bullets must fly with relentless precision and accuracy, here is where the 6.5 Creedmoor comes into play. The 6.5 Creedmoor is built to dominate at the long-range shooting game and has proven itself among many enthusiasts and hunters.


The 6.5 Creedmoor was designed specifically by Hornady for sleek, long, heavy-for-caliber and high-ballistic-coefficient bullets. Due to this proprietary design the 6.5 Creedmoor will maintain it's accuracy even if you shoot them further than 1200 yards which is why it's design is truly breathtaking.

The 6.5mm cartridges are well-known because they have high ballistic coefficients and sectional density. The great thing about the 6.5 Creedmoor is that they generate a lower recoil, but can still duplicate the .300 Winchester Magnum’s trajectory. The recoil you get out of the 6.5 Creedmoor is a lot less than what you would get out of a .308. Yet, the round is still very accurate at an incredibly long distance. You can easily maintain tight groups on a target that’s 1000 yards away.

Simply put, the 6.5 mm Creedmoor takes shooting at long-distance targets to new heights. Having less recoil helps in all aspects of shooting. It allows the shooter to reacquire the target rapidly over and over again which applies to both competitions and hunting.
