SIG Sauer has added a 6.5 Creedmoor round to its line of SIG HT premium-grade, copper hunting ammunition. Like all SIG HT Elite Performance Ammunition offerings, the 6.5 Creedmoor features an all-copper bullet that delivers deep penetration and consistent 1.8x diameter expansion. The 120-gr. 6.5 Creedmoor bullet has a muzzle velocity of 2,825 fps with muzzle energy of 2,126 ft.-lbs., making it an excellent load for medium-sized game such as deer and antelope. 

“The 6.5 Creedmoor is one of the hottest loads on the market and is increasingly popular with hunters due to its high ballistic coefficient which allows it to push through wind with less drag, delivering a flat trajectory and minimal recoil,” said Bud Fini, executive vice president of the SIG Sauer Ammunition Division and Special Projects. “In addition to the SIG HT hunting round, SIG Sauer also offers a 6.5 Creedmoor Match Grade OTM load featuring a140gr Sierra MatchKing® bullet.”

SIG HT premium-grade, copper hunting ammunition is now available in five calibers: 300BLK, 223 Rem, 308 Win, 300 Win Mag and 6.5 Creedmoor.

SIG HT cartridges are made with premium nickel-plated shell cases, and flash-reduced propellant is used to minimize visible signature while shooting in low-light situations. Premium quality primers are also used to minimize variations in velocity.
