Current Rifle Cartridges
6.5 Creedmoor
The 6.5 Creedmoor was developed in 2007 by Dave Emary of Hornady and Dennis DeMille a Camp Perry Champion.
It is based on the Hornady .30 T/C (Thomson Center) case shorted by .115" and necked down to accept 6.5mm (.264") Caliber
projectiles.
The cartridge was designed to be used in the short-action in the AR-10 platform as well as bolt-action platforms, and it has proven to
be a winner and replacing a lot of 7.62 NATO (.308 Winchester) barrels, producing flatter trajectories at the 400/500 yard range and
higher muzzle velocity with a lighter projectile with higher ballistic coefficient and better energy per weight the .308 projectiles.
It's on my AR-10 Upper want list.
