The 6.5mm Creedmoor(6.5×48 mm), designated 6.5 Creedmoor by SAAMI6.5 Creedmoor by the C.I.P. or 6.5 CM or 6.5 CRDMR for short, is a centerfireriflecartridge introduced by Hornady in 2007.It was developed by Hornady senior ballistics scientist Dave Emary in partnership with Dennis DeMille, the Vice-President of Product Development at Creedmoor Sports, hence the name. The cartridge is a necked-down modification of the .30 Thompson Center.
The 6.5mm Creedmoor was designed specifically for long-range target shooting, although it has succeeded in game hunting. Bullet-for-bullet, the 6.5mm Creedmoor achieves a slower muzzle velocity than longer cartridges such as the 6.5-284 Norma or magnum cartridges such as the 6.5mm Remington Magnum. However, due to its overall length of 2.825 inches (71.8 mm), it is capable of chambering in short-action rifles like the 6.5×47mm Lapua. Place your order today
