The 6mm Creedmoor loads were primarily picked from data listing the highest velocity, but only a few required a little adjustment after the three-shot tests to shoot under an inch, and eventually all averaged under that magic number. 0000273509 00000 n In the absence of a muzzle brake, one advantage of the lower recoil is that for some it can be easier to spot trace and return to target quicker. 0000265971 00000 n Since Hornady was the first ammo maker to get behind the 6.5 Grendel in a big way, it was an easy transition to the new round. 0000010372 00000 n 0000024260 00000 n 0000029308 00000 n The 6.5 Creedmoor has made quite a name for itself in long-range precision shooting, but the newer 6mm Creedmoor is giving it a real run for its money. 0000268651 00000 n 0000068390 00000 n 0000163177 00000 n While waiting for them, I performed a “literature search” of published 6mm Creedmoor data and found plenty, not just from Hornady but from Hodgdon, Sierra and Speer. Like shorter barrel life, that doesn’t matter to most hunters but does to target shooters. This finally occurred as they realized bullet weight was not the big factor in wind drift, but ballistic coefficient (BC). 0000374298 00000 n While many cartridges exist between the .243 and .270, apparently a lot of shooters feel the 6.5 Creedmoor plugs that gap pretty well, with recoil similar to the .243 but with bullet weights edging closer to the .270’s weights. 0000373968 00000 n ei���BhzxU��}1�ʥ�oz�X�o���:�Jҫ��[�߲*��”����_foE@���r�M��R��F_�P�*h۪xZ�>�p��Zk5Y�A� ��e��vk�t�,������*_ 0000005365 00000 n However, the .243 Winchester still appears in the list of chamberings for the RAR, and just about every other bolt-action rifle made on Earth – and will for a very long time. ��J�r� �*��U2ԔT��� �i��i\�dr]��UMߵ����j��6�NJ�O���|��d���F�b'q Wxƒ ��8�6�n\�byR2�I(��\��6Z�rF�e��%�n9�1Ħ������� v�mF����^�g��f��F/�~�]e�P����fx%Oǭ��������>!Z��WȢ�tQ�l͒BB��,T�ӈ�Ē��N�Z�٦�;"��Yv���!�ȣ��2�� jQ.b�,ˠB �d�\},I�$��,���l�����1ę�~� Like the .243 Winchester, the 6mm Creedmoor will work great for hunting anything from marmots to mule deer, though John is aware of several Montana hunters who have already successfully used it on elk. 0000279051 00000 n 0000023821 00000 n 0000008866 00000 n 0000018305 00000 n 0000258246 00000 n 6mm Creedmoor Ammo found in: Berger Target Rifle Ammunition 6mm Creedmoor 109 gr LRHT 2940 fps 20/ct, Hornady Match Rifle Ammunition 6mm Creedmoor 108 gr ELD 2660 fps 20/ct, Nosler Trophy Grade Rifle Ammunition *:� 0000164593 00000 n Within a decade, Remington also chambered the 722 in .222 Remington, .222 Remington Magnum, .244. 0000371866 00000 n 0000372988 00000 n 34 0 obj <> endobj xref 34 211 0000000016 00000 n 0000163639 00000 n 0000267147 00000 n 0000261910 00000 n Now, there are limits to this because smaller calibers limit the length – and hence BC – of bullets. 0000371265 00000 n Hornady started producing 6mm Creedmoor ammunition and cases in 2017.

The lands in front of the chamber were cut pretty evenly for a factory rifle, with a relatively gentle angle, which is common on target rifles but not hunting rifles. Aside from the same problem encountered with the .260 Remington and longer, high-BC bullets in 2.850-inch magazines, the .243’s relatively shallow shoulder angle of 20 degrees tends to funnel hot powder gas right in front of the short neck, accelerating throat erosion and resulting in relatively short barrel life. 6.5mmクリードモア(英:6.5mm Creedmoor)はセンターファイア・ライフル銃用の実包。6.5 Creedmoor、6.5 CM、6.5 CRDMRなどと略される。.308ウィンチェスター [6] をベースにした .30 TC [7] の派生として、ホーナディによって2007年に導入された [8]。 0000259924 00000 n 0000055751 00000 n Redding dies resulted in very concentrically seated bullets. 0000023419 00000 n Necks can vary considerably in length, yet in big-game or long-range target rounds extra neck length does not usually add to powder capacity, as they are normally filled by bullets, not powder.). 0000272686 00000 n 0000264778 00000 n 0000008466 00000 n The 4-16x 44mm Zeiss Conquest scope used on the Ruger test rifle provided plenty of precision when shooting groups. 0000369855 00000 n 0000029225 00000 n 0000255907 00000 n 0000079179 00000 n The 6mm Creedmoor is a relatively new cartridge, but has caught fire in the long range shooting world – and for good reason!

In contrast, the 6mm Creedmoor offers just about the same ballistics as the .243, a very popular hunting cartridge not only in the U.S. but also in Europe and Africa. 0000018127 00000 n 0000011202 00000 n 0000005557 00000 n The twists of most factory .243 Winchesters are either the long-standard 1:10, or occasionally 1:9 – not quite enough to stabilize really long bullets under all environmental conditions. The front end is designed to disintegrate, not just expand, and at 3,500 fps shoots very flat at “normal” hunting ranges out to 500 yards. 0000063503 00000 n 0000079291 00000 n While the original 6.5 Creedmoor was designed with NRA High Power competition in mind, other disciplines, including PRS, were quick to see the positive attributes of this cartridge. 0000276235 00000 n This Predator version has a slightly heavier barrel than the standard sporter. Less than two years ago, I reviewed a Precision Rifle .243 Winchester in Rifle as part of an article on “chassis” rifles. The 6.5 Creedmoor fires 6.5mm or.246 caliber projectiles where as the 308 Winchester fires.30 caliber projectiles. 243 Win vs 6mm Creedmoor vs 6mm Rem I like 243 because it's really common and if need be there is lots of factory ammo if I ever needed it. 0000374480 00000 n Wolfe Publishing Company | 2180 Gulfstream Suite A | Prescott, AZ 86301. 0000079363 00000 n 0000372562 00000 n Eventually, however, they realized the .308 kicked too much for consistently fine shooting, even in rifles weighing more than 10 pounds. 0000271197 00000 n 0000214507 00000 n (Measuring water capacity to the top of the neck often provides an inaccurate comparison between cartridges. Yet many target shooters proved even pickier, soon “discovering” 6mm cartridges recoil even less than 6.5mm cartridges due to lighter bullets. 0000376105 00000 n 0000370416 00000 n As a result of this startling news, “short” 6mm wildcats started appearing, among them (naturally) the 6mm Creedmoor, the 6.5 Creedmoor necked down.

After the .30-caliber obsession started dissipating, Americans “discovered” what many European target shooters had known for decades: A 6.5mm boat-tail spitzer of around 140 grains drifts similarly to a 190-grain .30-caliber boat-tail spitzer started at the same velocity – but the lighter bullet results in lighter recoil, allowing shooters to avoid flinching. 0000371382 00000 n Quite a few target shooters tried the .243 Winchester during the rush to smaller calibers, including David Tubb, 11-time national High Power champion. The 6mm CM is basically a necked down version of the 6.5 Creedmoor. 0000278877 00000 n 0000263448 00000 n ���c7Ϻ���Br5 #u�mz�e}��0� G�_i��7oȷ����ZBTݝ����1�9j^j�Zwќ�*M��� The 6mm Creedmoor recoils exactly like a .243 Winchester when shot off a benchrest, and it offers nearly exact ballistics. 0000264520 00000 n 0000040220 00000 n According to various sources, at least two shooters had a major hand in getting Hornady to produce the 6mm Creedmoor. Soon afterward I acquired a slightly used Ruger American Rifle (RAR) 6mm Creedmoor owned by a hunter who thought it simply had to be more accurate than his .243 Winchester. 0000268577 00000 n 0000163662 00000 n 0000007379 00000 n nB.��?�;s� ��-P�����B���*A}O�vod�oy���4������7�^��ED�Ok�{AYї�Ԗp��n�;���w�Ww�J�:��� �]V�B"���qBV��6�L�^C��s�Ԡ`�+��_�56%��� 0000006933 00000 n M 6mm Creedmoor 108 gr. 0000068163 00000 n 0000162899 00000 n 0000377198 00000 n That said, the 6mm Creedmoor does have noticeably less recoil. 0000375386 00000 n Not surprisingly, the same sort of mid- to slow-burning powders that work in the .243 Winchester also work in the 6mm Creedmoor. 0000276130 00000 n 0000265605 00000 n 0000261879 00000 n 0000163394 00000 n 0000009824 00000 n 0000255256 00000 n Both the 6mm Creedmoor and 6.5 Creedmoor are light recoiling cartridge that are easy to shoot; especially for extended periods of time. In fact, by mid-2018 far more pressure-tested data existed for the 6mm Creedmoor than many other recently introduced factory rounds, probably due to its popularity as a wildcat. 0000278350 00000 n Generally, I start range-testing cartridges larger than .22 caliber with three-shot groups, then retest with four-shot groups, often changing seating depth slightly if the three-shot groups seemed iffy. The 6mm Creedmoor solves the overall length problem, and it also extends barrel life somewhat, due to its modern “accuracy” shoulder angle of 30 degrees and a slightly longer neck. The longest any bullet could be seated just short of the lands was 2.865 inches when using the Hornady 108-grain ELD-M. 0000261705 00000 n After several range sessions, another very slight advantage for the 6mm Creedmoor was discovered: Cases stretch less than .243 brass, no doubt due to the steeper shoulder of the Creedmoor. 0000163813 00000 n 0000278900 00000 n 0000277106 00000 n 0000076487 00000 n As an offspring of the Soviet 7.62×39, the 6mm ARC gets some of the shared battlefield cred, too. After running all the necks over the expander ball in the Redding sizing die, case length measured slightly less than the maximum 1.920 inches listed by Hornady, so I chamfered all the case mouths. September 19, 2017 By Layne Simpson When Hornady introduced the 6.5 Creedmoor about 10 years ago, competitive shooters took note of the fact that it duplicated the velocity of the earlier 6.5x47 Lapua. u����'� �и endstream endobj 35 0 obj <>>> endobj 36 0 obj <> endobj 37 0 obj <>/ExtGState<>/Font<>/ProcSet[/PDF/Text]/Properties<>/Shading<>/XObject<>>>/Rotate 0/Thumb 21 0 R/TrimBox[0.0 0.0 783.0 612.0]/Type/Page>> endobj 38 0 obj <>stream The chamber throat was investigated using both a Hawkeye borescope and by seating different bullets. “Everybody” knew heavier .30-caliber bullets drifted less in the wind, and smaller cartridges did not drive them fast enough. 0000009188 00000 n 0000079102 00000 n 0000024735 00000 n These advantages can be accentuated if the shooter is using a lightweight rifle and/or shooting from unconventional firing positions.Returning to the topic of wind drift… 0000006481 00000 n Necking down of the 6.5 CM allowed the base to be fitted with a .243 cal bullet and allo… FTX ® 8277 2425 2181 1952 1738 1543 1370 1436 1162 930 738 581 458 -0 8 3 0 -12 5-36 -752 0000276056 00000 n 0000372019 00000 n 0000372883 00000 n 0000258633 00000 n 0000040400 00000 n 0000260092 00000 n 0000058778 00000 n 0000005523 00000 n 0000260725 00000 n s?����kq���ş�` \��� endstream endobj 44 0 obj <> endobj 45 0 obj <>stream 0000276712 00000 n 0000377839 00000 n 0000377272 00000 n (The stiffer forends on newer RAR stocks usually prevent this, but not always).

Meanwhile, hunters who feel an extreme itch for accuracy may find that the 6mm Creedmoor scratches it. The 4-16x 44mm Zeiss Conquest scope used on the Ruger test rifle provided plenty of precision when shooting groups. It took far longer for America’s long-range target shooters to come to the same basic conclusion about larger .30-caliber cartridges. The 6mm Creedmoor’s advantages over the .243 are pretty insignificant and mostly apply to long-range target shooting. 0000267510 00000 n One of the features that makes it popular in PRS style matches will likely also add to its popularity in the hunting field and as a chambering for a Scout rifle . 0000214310 00000 n 0000078839 00000 n Thanks to the 6 mm Creedmoor… The Eagle Eye 6.5 Creedmoor shoots a 130gr hybrid projectile with a.295 G7 at 2,960fps from an average 26" barrel. 0000256920 00000 n 9'>'G���Ddtohp�&_��,#��F�Ț�t-i�F�^e)�㰨l�����pʼ^3o�7�(��[�-�NxǼ�3�̅p�|>1�����p���� � � � � � � � � � � � ����ǹh��p�B���}�>�e~ H�\�͊�0��y��C�?i!Ŷ�aXw����(�|��ɔ.���Bf�/�Ey*m���ݍM��z�:�ǻk@^��[Ų��1��f�'`r����Fa�>pq^�*7�v��Vo��ۛ�|�V�}�~` ��P�l�Í^��@>mW���/�s�">� d���4c�T7�j{aB|ri.��l�o=�9��5ߵ&�`p*�o��~��0��3¤�g�c�xϼ'.�i���|B�xό��87��,aN�S�Y�Y��R�(Fq��1sF��51�(�Q�1�E�]{��*�T���g����h4�k����_��&7�n��4�ir���A��&�#���Q *v�|�Bsw�����?U�����i�$f�+~ �$�n endstream endobj 39 0 obj <> endobj 40 0 obj <> endobj 41 0 obj <>stream The 6mm ARC’s parent case is the 6.5 Grendel, which takes its lineage from the.220 Russian and 7.62mm Soviet. 0000270802 00000 n Consequently, 6.5mm wildcats with slightly shorter cases were designed to fit perfectly in 2.85-inch magazines. 0000257968 00000 n 0000011538 00000 n While the 6mm Creedmoor is obviously designed for longer, high-BC bullets, some lighter bullets were tested for those shooters preferring screaming muzzle velocities – though one of these, the Cutting Edge 77-grain Match/Tactical/Hunting (MTH) is an all-copper, hollowpoint boat-tail that is very long for its weight. 0000261414 00000 n 0000254328 00000 n 9{�:�� 9c��)MJA�M؍$���,�ƕo(�! 0000370393 00000 n 0000216208 00000 n 0000278803 00000 n 0000163740 00000 n 0000213525 00000 n 0000079080 00000 n 0000266360 00000 n Along with its “long-action” companion rifle, the Model 721, the Remington 722 became very popular. 0000256542 00000 n That means the 6mm Creedmoor is traveling more than 100 yards per second faster than the 6.5 bullet when it leaves the muzzle.

This meant it was not truly free floated, a probable cause of the unsatisfactory accuracy. %PDF-1.5 %���� One example is the Ruger Precision Rifle, essentially a target version of the Ruger American Rifle, often purchased by hunters looking for long-range performance. 0000269355 00000 n 0000048213 00000 n The Hornady Precision Hunter load drives a 103-grain ELD-X to a muzzle velocity of 3050 fps, putting the 6mm Creedmoor essentially on par with the.243 Winchester, but it’s the ability to properly seat the longer bullets with the best ballistic coefficients that gives the 6mm Creedmoor the edge out beyond 500 yards. ��tq}�'�π).Q�͖�kל�\��$ .wv���I�u�'�}�Ó���I6�oʸ�'������=�R��j�,��nԎL9?����C��`�&!�Q8_g �`bS҇T�(�{Ԋ�"yB�qMZ��Te��_ե� ��e���*X��R���p!���%~�"��nv�bL�z(mH��J�f3YzO�����'Z�Q���؄��QW;���nȊ�$4����Lx�OS�i��bh3lBAT�o����nk��^Fx�b�. 0000271313 00000 n 0000370573 00000 n When I conducted a similar test on the 243 Winchester with factory ammunition ( link ), a 100 grain bullet had a velocity of 2488 in a 16″ barrel. 0000277222 00000 n 0000369491 00000 n One obvious question is whether the 6mm Creedmoor will become as popular as the 6.5 Creedmoor, the latter swiftly becoming one of the “standard” cartridges offered by just about every manufacturer of bolt action rifles. Whether through luck or design, the inside length of the magazine on this particular Predator measures 2.870 inches; most other bullets ended up seated to an overall length of 2.600 to 2.800 inches. �����u�1���v��{�¯��DF�k\�n+�we��a��pA�T7! )�r�[����5��ׂe�s�^�I����""���#��{6����c�`m��"#g`�)Ч(�X��dV���l�W�+xI^Fj ��Z-��@K�%�j ��Z-��@K�%В5y ޒ�`�D0ٓ�`�D0ϙx��ӛ�7Oo�eFEFe��VY��U�R�R�Q�Q�R�R�Թ'g���2�"�n�0�*�*�*�*�*�*�*�����===}|}|}|}|.�'_d�42z.�|����>��� ���z�~�G�b��{�}��ͫ>�6���׿��.V��` p � endstream endobj 42 0 obj <> endobj 43 0 obj <>stream The 6mm Creedmoor actually began gaining popularity not in the precision rifle match world, where it is probably best appreciated now, but in hunting done in fields and woods.
