When it comes to popular rifle calibers it is hard to beat anything that has the name “Creedmoor” associated with it lately. The 6.5 Creedmoor and 6mm Creedmoor are garnering a lot of attention and even a newer variant, the 8.6 Creedmoor, has a lot of people intrigued. A benchmark ammunition choice for discerning shooters has always been Federal Premium’s Gold Medal Match and now there are more offerings in your favorite Creedmoor flavors.
The newest selections that shooters get to pick from are as follows:
- 6mm Creedmoor 105 Grain Berger Hybrid | GM6CRDBH1 | MSRP $36.95
- 6.5 Creedmoor 140 Grain Sierra MatchKing | GM65CRD1 | MSRP $33.95
Both the Berger Hybrid and Sierra Matchking tips are well-respected for their tenured, proven accuracy. Along with Federal Premium’s typical tight tolerances these new loads should prove valuable for anyone who owns a 6mm or 6.5 Creedmoor. Some of the other qualities that the Gold Medal Match series of ammunition boasts, according to Federal, include all of the following:
- Extremely high ballistic coefficients
- Less wind drift and drop
- World-class long-range accuracy
- Gold Medal match primer
This ammo is currently shipping to dealers across the US according to Federal Premium. Understanding that this ammunition is of match-grade quality and employs Federal’s Gold Medal match primer; premium tips from Berger and Sierra; and features really high BCs, is this something that you would put through your rifle at an F-class match or other long-range event?
