History of Federal 6.5 Creedmoor Ammo

Established in 1922 by then company president Charles L. Horn, Federal Ammunition has been a leader in ammo development and innovation for a century. And their Federal Premium 6.5 Creedmoor ammo continues this legacy of accuracy, precision, and stopping power.

The 6.5 Creedmoor is considered by many as the pinnacle of long range accuracy with extremely mild recoil. Its flat trajectory with high ballistic coefficient make it ideal for long distance shooting in competition or hunting.
