From the S&B Press Release:
Sellier & Bellot Introduces 6.5 Creedmoor Ammunition to US Market
February 28, 2018 (Minneapolis, MN) – Sellier & Bellot (S&B) announces an all-new 6.5 Creedmoor round for range and plinking use. This fills a hole in the market for reliable, cost-effective 6.5 Creedmoor ammunition.
Dating back to 1825, S&B has a long history of manufacturing high-quality ammunition. The new 6.5 Creedmoor round is a solid performer, offering reliable function in bolt or semi-auto rifles. S&B selected a time-tested 140 grain, full metal jacket, lead core 6.5mm bullet. It’s loaded into a premium, Boxer primed, brass case suitable for reloading.
“There is great demand for 6.5 Creedmoor ammunition. However, many of the currently available options are cost-prohibitive,” said Mike Fisher, Vice President, US Sales and Marketing. “We developed something here that allows more people to get out and shoot their rifles. It’s ideal for training or a fun day of plinking without breaking the bank.”
Below: 6,5 Creedmoor is a great round for long range shooting.
