Department of Defense Chooses 6.5 Creedmoor Ammo from Hornady

Grand Island, NE — A specialized group from the U.S. Department of Defense has purchased an undisclosed amount of 6.5 Creedmoor ammunition from Hornady for its long-range sniper platform.

The 6.5 Creedmoor was tested and selected for engagements from 0 to 1,200 yards.

The purchase agreement coincides with a Department of Defense decision to replace the MK13 bolt-action 300 Win Mag with a 20-inch semiautomatic AR-10 in 6.5 Creedmoor.

With less recoil, the change will provide enhanced accuracy and performance, as well as reduced ammunition and rifle weight, compared to the MK13 300 Win Mag.

The 6.5 Creedmoor from Hornady provides world-class performance in a factory-loaded cartridge. The high-performance, match-accurate round features an excellent cartridge-to-chamber relationship and shoots well in all guns.

The 6.5 Creedmoor features proven Hornady bullets, specially selected cases, carefully matched powder and stringent quality control.
