When it comes to long-range target shooting, and long-distance hunting as well, two of the most popular cartridges on the block are from the Creedmoor family in 6.5 Creedmoor and 6mm Creedmoor. Keeping in step with those trends, Federal Premium has expanded their Gold Medal Berger lineup of ammunition to include more 6.5 Creedmoor and 6mm Creedmoor offerings. All of the specifications for those NEW ammunition selections can be read below as presented by Federal Premium:
- Extremely high ballistic coefficient
- Less wind drift and drop
- World-class long-range accuracy
- Gold Medal match primer
- New 6.5 Creedmoor and 6mm Creedmoor
- 6.5 Creedmoor 140 Grain Berger Hybrid | GM65CRDBH2 | MSRP $41.99
- 6mm Creedmoor 109 Grain Berger Long Range Hybrid Target | GM6CRDBH2 | MSRP $42.99
All of these new ammunition selections come in predictable 20-count boxes with fairly reasonable pricing for 6.5 and 6mm Creedmoor ammo. Being topped off with Berger bullets gives them quite the edge considering their extraordinarily high BCs (ballistic coefficients) and the generally long profile bullets utilized for Creedmoor cartridges. Federal Premium expands more on this in the Press Release quotation below:
Federal has expanded the trusted Gold Medal® rifle ammunition line with new 140 grain 6.5 Creedmoor and 109-grain 6mm Creedmoor loads. These fast, flat-shooting cartridges have proven themselves in competition and earned the respect of elite long range shooters. Both rounds are loaded with the Gold Medal match primers, Federal® brass and specially formulated propellant.
The Gold Medal Berger series of ammunition is some of the finest that Federal Premium produces and for anyone who is sending 6.5 and 6mm Creedmoor downrange that is likely the expectations of their ammunition choices. Most people who own rifles chambered in Creedmoor rounds are looking to shoot long distances so it only makes sense that they have a discerning taste for ammunition.
