SIG Sauer, Inc. extends its Match Grade Elite Performance Ammunition line for rifles with the addition of a 6.5 Creedmoor Open Tip Match (OTM) round. Featuring a 140-gr. Sierra MatchKing bullet, this new 6.5 Creedmoor load has a muzzle velocity of 2,625 f.p.s. with muzzle energy of 2,142 ft-lbs.

“The 6.5 Creedmoor is one of today’s most popular cartridges with competition shooters and hunters alike,” said Dan Powers, president of the SIG Sauer Ammunition Division. “It is an impressive, flat-shooting round that delivers precision in challenging, windy conditions.” 

Engineered to excel in today’s precision rifles, SIG Sauer Match Grade Elite Performance Ammunition uses a temperature-stable propellant that delivers consistent muzzle velocity in all weather conditions. Premium-quality primers ensure minimum velocity variations, and the shell case metallurgy is optimized in the SIG Match Grade OTM cartridge to yield consistent bullet retention round to round. All SIG Sauer rifle ammunition is precision loaded on state-of-the-art equipment that is 100 percent electromechanically monitored to ensure geometric conformity and charge weight consistency.
