NEW: Creedmoor PTR Ammunition

creedmoor

Creedmoor Sports has been manufacturing a wide variety of products for the firearms community for more than 35 years, and now they’re also manufacturing ammunition. Their ammo line thus far includes pistol calibers in .38 Special, .40 S&W, .45 ACP, .357 Magnum, .380 Auto, 9mm, and 10mm. Rifle calibers include .30-06, .308, 6.5 Creedmoor, and .223/5.56. Now there’s a new addition to their rifle lineup: Creedmoor Precision Tactical Rifle (PTR) Ammunition.

From Creedmoor:

“Hard-hitting and extremely accurate, the new .223 caliber PTR round is loaded with a 55 grain Sierra HPBT bullet. The Sierra HPBT leaves the muzzle at a sizzling 3,200 feet per second, and generates 1,250 foot pounds of threat-stopping energy. When zeroed in at 100 yards, the bullet drops a scant 3.4 inches at 200 yards. “

Creedmoor Sports President Greg Kantorovich had this to say about the new round: “We wanted to make ammunition that law enforcement could count on in the most extreme situations. And that’s what we’ve done with this new PTR round, which combines all the accuracy we bring to our high-power, competitive shooting ammo with stopping power that law enforcement can rely on.”

If these rounds perform as promised they’ll be a great option for rifle shooters interested in improved precision with their AR-15s. Speaking from experience using their pistol rounds I can say I do expect the new PTR ammo to deliver.

MSRP $21.95 for a 20 round box of .223 55 grain HPBT Creedmoor.

    Meh, I thought it was for the 6.5 master race.

      The “creedmoor” label caught me off-guard at first as well. Always in the market for accurate 5.56, of course.

    Thought it was gonna be specific to the PTR

  • gunsandrockets

    I’m so confused! So now I can shoot Creedmoor in my .308 PTR-91?
