The 6.5mm Creedmoor, designated 6.5 Creedmoor by SAAMI, 6,5 Creedmoor by the C.I.P. or 6.5 CM or 6.5 CREEDMOOR for short, is a centerfire rifle cartridge introduced by Hornady in 2007 as a modification of the.30 TC, which was based on the .308 Winchester.
It was developed in partnership by Hornady Senior Ballistics Scientist, Dave Emary, and Dennis DeMille, the VP of product development for Creedmoor Sports, hence the name.
The 6mm Creedmoor is a necked-down version of the 6.5mm Creedmoor using 6 mm (.243 inch) bullets, lighter than 6.5 mm bullets with similarly-reduced recoil.
The prevailing attitude is there was more room with the 6.5mm Creedmoor to develop projectiles and loads.
Because the two cartridges (7.62×51mm NATO and 6.5 mm Creedmoor) have similar dimensions, the same magazines can be used, and a rifle can be converted with just a barrel change.
The cartridge was designed specifically for long-range target shooting, although it is also achieving success in game hunting.
Bullet for bullet, the 6.5mm Creedmoor achieves a slower muzzle velocity than longer cartridges such as the 6.5-284 Norma or magnum cartridges such as the 6.5mm Remington Magnum.
