History of 6.5mm Creedmoor Ammo

The 6.5mm Creedmoor is touted by some shooters to be at the top of the ladder when it comes to an all-purpose cartridge. Although this cartridge is revolutionary in its way, a previous incarnation, the 6.5x55mm Swedish Ammo, has been around much longer than a decade. The caliber that the 6.5mm Creedmoor is based on was initially developed in Norway and Sweden in 1894 as part of their military arsenal. It was introduced to the US after World War II when surplus rifles began to arrive on the shores. Many became enchanted with the caliber because it was inexpensive, yet few manufacturers were loading it.

In the 1990s several companies began to manufacture bullets similar to the 6.5x55mm Swedish Ammo, but still hadn’t managed to achieve the lighter weight and aerodynamic ability demanded by users. Fast forward to 2005 and the conception of the 6.5 Creedmoor.

This incarnation is relatively new to the ammo world, conceived by legendary High Power Rifle competitor and General Manager of Creedmoor Sports, Dennis DeMille. DeMille was attending the National Matches along with friend Dave Emary, Hornady Manufacturing’s senior ballistician, when he was approached by several shooters complaining about the unpredictability of the 6mmXC. The ammo was doing damage to their rifles and the absence of the reloading recipe presented frustration to the shooters, particularly during rapid reloading. Since DeMille’s company was the exclusive distributor of the rifles being used at the competition, the shooters looked to him to create a solution.

DeMille looked to the .30-06 for inspiration and then created a list of variables that had to be achieved if he was going to create the ideal ammo. The variables included medium velocity, magazine cartridge size, light recoil, and a reloading recipe printed on the box. Emary accepted DeMille’s challenge to create a cartridge to match his specifications and the 6.5mm Creedmoor was born.

Testing ensued and the 6.5 Creedmoor was debuted at SHOT Show 2007. The 6.5mm Creedmoor was intended to be a “do-anything” cartridge, a concept that intrigued competition shooters and created more than its share of skeptics. How could a small cartridge with a medium velocity fare well in long range competition and be powerful enough to take down large game in the wild? They were about to find out. Early devotees adopted the magazine-sized cartridge and began using it in competition with great success. Hunters tested it in the wild and quickly learned that the caliber could be effective against big game, a fact that surprised even the most hardcore skeptics.

Looking to stock up on some solid match-grade or hunting ammo for this fall? Check out our full selection of Hornady 6.5 Creedmoor ammo or our Sellier & Bellot 6.5 Creedmoor ammo in stock and ready to ship!

New rifles tailored for the 6.5 Creedmoor began to appear on the scene, running the gamut from a lightweight mountain rifle to an AR tactical weapon. At the time of writing, the 6.5mm Creedmoor ranks second to the .223 in sales. Other manufacturers quickly followed suit and now the caliber is offered by several manufacturers including Federal 6.5 Creedmoor and Winchester. What started out as an underdog with big dreams has developed into what some shooters refer to as the ultimate cartridge.”

Customer Reviews

  • Kenny said:

    At 200 meters can hit a quarter from either a TCenter or Savage rifle. Kills buck deer with just one hit in the chest, same killing power as any 7mm or .30 caliber but with much less recoil. The 6.5 mm CM is the new standard to displace the .308 or .3006 ; why suffer more recoild with no more killing power?

  • Gilacypha said:

    Awesome value! On target for a great price’

  • Gregory said:

    Shoots rather well and consistent

  • John said:

    I didn't expect a match ammo but it performs very well.

  • Shawn said:

    Shoots very tight groups at the range at 100 yards, very accurate used it to sight in my scope and target shoot, and has almost the same ballistics as the s&b sp 140 grain I use to hunt deer

  • Ken said:

    This ammo would just be used for plate shot.

  • Kink said:

    Used for sighting in a new scope. No complaints

  • Steve said:

    They are great, accurate and worked well

  • Spanky said:

    I bought 6.5 three years ago have killed at least twenty deer in those three years. Broke every Deere neck up to two hundred yards. No recoil, most accurate bullet out there. Bolt action bull barrel savage. No real expensive gun. Need more bullets. Hard to get ammo in fl.

  • Evey said:

    Very happy with this ammo

  • RD said:

    I hunt with 143gr ELD-X and sight in my Tikka Veil with them, but when I want to see what it will really do I shoot these match grade cartridges. There's a difference. Very cool ammo.

  • Rusty said:

    I shot a 340lb mule deer with the 143gr ELD-X. He walked in a tight circle and fell over. These bullets hit where you point them and hit hard. They're all I shoot on big game.

  • BT said:

    Ammo performes as required! Flat shooting, punching holes right through some coyote. Using thermal, this ammo was putting down 1/8" groups.

  • 5bites said:

    I used this ammo for the first time this year in my 6.5 Creedmoor I shot a buck at 200yrds. He was dead before hid head hit the ground never seen anything like it. I hunted with a 30/06 before this and deer never went down that fast. This ammo is great.

  • Nightstalker said:

    I am a depredation hunter for deer and hogs I have shot hundreds of deer and many hogs. If using a silencer as I do this ammo has cycle without jam or misfire up to 200 rounds in a 5 hour period. Best Ammo for a 6.5 Creedmoor I have ever used.

  • James said:

    I hunted in Africa with this ammo and it is awesome. Every animal dropped in it's tracks. As close to a custom load as you can get over the counter. I'm going back and use same gun and ammo.

  • Thomas said:

    I've shot deer with these and so far only one deer has moved around in the same spot he fell but only for a few minutes, never got up again.

  • Trained Observer said:

    My Savage 110 is my first sub-MOA gun out of the box and it was pulled off using the Hornady 143gr ELD. I tried a few other garden variety ammo makers including the Nosler, Winchester and some exotics, but none performed like the Hornady.

  • Popper said:

    Best bullet available for 6.5cm
