The Hornady InterLock bullet is designed to be a devastating hunting bullet and nothing less. The InterLock Ring, a Hornady exclusive, ensures that the hard-alloyed lead core and tapered jacket remain locked together during expansion. The resulting bullet retains more mass, energy and momentum after impact and transfers that energy into the target. It is this reliable stopping power that has earned the InterLock a worldwide reputation as a bullet for the serious hunter. This ammunition is new production, non-corrosive, in boxer primed, reloadable brass cases. 6.5 Creedmoor for sale

If you want to hate the 6.5 Creedmoor, so be it, but to deny the fact that it’s a good target and hunting cartridge (for its intended applications) is unfounded. It is the equal—yet not superior—of the .260 Remington as a hunting cartridge, as the target advantages of the Creedmoor won’t show up until out past 500 yards, and that’s probably too far to be shooting at unwounded game. The Creedmoor works better in the confines of a short-action magazine, as the case is short enough to handle the longer ogive bullets, where the .260 Remington has trouble with the seating depth.

Is the 6.5 Creedmoor the be-all-and-end-all cartridge? No, no it isn’t. Is it a good choice for the target shooter who wants long barrel life, superb accuracy and the ability to hit targets out to 1,500 yards and beyond? Absolutely, and it will continue be so for decades to come. The 6.5mm Creedmoor is a medium-power cartridge comparable to the . 260 Remington and 6.5×47mm Lapua.

What is a 6.5 Creedmoor rifle good for?

It’s a great choice for deer, antelope, and even coyotes and hogs. It’s most definitely on the light side for elk and moose, and while it works well on lighter African plains game, it does have its limits, especially on species like zebra, wildebeest and eland

Do Snipers use 6.5 Creedmoor?

On the sniper rifle front, according to Army Times, U.S. Special Operations Command is switching from the current 7.62×51-millimeter round—also known as . 308 Winchester—to the relatively new 6.5-millimeter Creedmoor round.

Does a 6.5 Creedmoor kick?

The 6.5 Creedmoor phenomenon has muddied the waters and confused a lot of hunters. The efficient little cartridge has become so popular, so ubiquitous, that many shooters are ascribing it powers it can’t live up to. Yeah, it’s a great, low-recoil round for precision shooting at ridiculous distances.
