Ft Collins, CO –-( 6.5 Creedmoor, the new 300WM?

Friends tell me that the 6.5 Creedmoor’s superiority as a serious, long-range cartridge is becoming generally accepted by the military sniper community.

The cartridge is very usable out to 1400m and is not nearly affected by wind as are thirty-caliber bullets.

6.5 Creedmoor Ammo

Currently, you can buy a box of twenty 6.5 Creedmoor cartridges for $25.00, and most major manufacturers are making their own version. It comes out to $1.25/round

It’s a long, skinny 140gr bullet at just under 3k f/s.

On a bolt-gun from Accuracy International, and other important manufacturers, most serious users are selecting a 5x to 25x scope from S&B or Vortex. The whole package, w/bipod, will run around 9k.

The foregoing represents sniping’s current trend.

Stay tuned!
