If you are a 6.5 Creedmoor shooter your world just got a bit better than it was yesterday. SIG SAUER 6.5 Creedmoor is now a thing and it is match grade!
Why am I so excited? Well, simply put, every other match grade offering I have shot from SIG’s new ammo line has been nothing short of a serious performer. Couple proven accuracy in some of my most loved rifles with availability and a rather reasonable price point, that is what makes a shooter happy.
SIG SAUER will be loading the new entry to the Match Grade Performance Ammunition in brand new SIG produced brass with enough of their temperature stable powder to launch a 140 grain Sierra MatchKing bullet at 2,625 fps measured at the muzzle. Sadly, there is no word as to what primer size is being used on the new brass. If they offered a small primer case in factory loaded ammunition, that would be enough for me to seriously consider buying a case or two for testing.
Who am I kidding? I am gonna have to get a case to see if my new ultra-badass rifle that Alamo Precision Rifles built for me likes it.
Dan Powers, the President of SIG SAUER’s ammunition division said that the 6.5 Creedmoor has become on of the most popular calibers on the market today with competition shooters as well as hunters. The universally loved cartridge has “proven to be a flat-shooting round that delivers precision in challenging, windy conditions” according to Powers.
