The 6.5 Creedmoor: Three Reasons to Despise It

The 6.5 Creedmoor brass. Mere mention of the cartridge causes some people to break out in hives. Also, some individuals are really enamored with it, and this is fairly shocking. It’s been around long enough that some shooters are only familiar with the 6.5 creedmoor brass and have never attempted anything else. Below are 3 reasons why you should despise or consider the ammunition.

1-The cartridge isn’t old enough:

Since the end of the nineteenth century, the 6.5×55 Swedish has done everything the 6.5 Creedmoor can. The.260 Remington is based on the.308 Winchester, which was introduced in 1952. The.264 Winchester Magnum is also based on the 1912.375 Holland & Holland. The 6.5-284 Norma is based on the.284 Winchester, which is nearly a half-century old at the very least. The 6.5 Creedmoor cartridge is just too new to be considered a viable cartridge for anything, let alone one of the greatest long-range cartridges ever.

2-It is reshaping the hunting business:

The Creedmoor is the new all-around cartridge for North America. Any rifleman needs only the Creedmoor. Buy a Creedmoor and sell your other weapons. That is not how it works, people. It will never be able to replace the.30-06 in the hunting field. It’s ideal for deer, antelope, as well as coyotes and pigs. It’s on the light side for elk and moose, and while it works well on lighter African plains game, it has its limitations, particularly with zebra, wildebeest, and eland.

3-It’s far from the only target cartridge on the market:

The name Creedmoor comes from a property on Long Island, New York, where the NRA shooting contests took place. For a long period, the world was deafeningly silent. People were firing at targets that were 1,000 yards away. Before there was smokeless powder, the Creedmoor site hosted 1,000-yard international championships. For 1,000-yard shooting, the.30-06 Springfield was a popular choice. In 1935, the.300 Holland & Holland won the Wimbledon Cup for the second time. Furthermore, the.308 Winchester was the target community’s sweetheart. Finally, the.300 Winchester Magnum performs an excellent job, while the.260 Remington and 6.5-284 Norma are excellent representations of the 6.5mm bore.
