Sellier & Bellot dive into the 6.5 Creedmoor craze, introducing its own 6.5 Creedmoor ammunition to the U.S. market.

The company says the S&B branded Creedmoor aims to offer consumers reliable yet cost-effective rounds for range and plinking.

“There is great demand for 6.5 Creedmoor ammunition. However, many of the currently available options are cost-prohibitive,” Mike Fisher, Vice President, US Sales and Marketing, said in a press release. “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.”

The 6.5 Creedmoor round has proven itself a solid long range contender, delivering reliable performance in both bolt-action and semi-automatic rifles. S&B brings a 140 grain, full metal jacket variety with a lead core 6.5mm bullet to its 6.5 Creedmoor offering.

The company said the bullet is loaded into a premium, Boxer primed, brass case designed to allow reloaders the opportunity to reutilize the brass.

S&B has already started shipping the new ammunition — 20 rounds to a box — with a price hovering around $15.
