The story of these cartridges begins in the 1890s with the 6.5×55 Swede. Fearful of being outgunned in a future conflict, European and American military forces scrambled to develop service rifles designed for use with smokeless powder in the late 1800s Et donc, si vous adaptez une 6.5 Creedmoor pour des balles de 0,243 pouce, vous obtiendrez une 6mm Creedmoor. Son étui peut contenir 50 grains d'eau, contre 54 grains pour la .243 Winchester, et 47 grains pour le 6 mm Lapua alors qu'il est plus court que celui de la .243 Winchester et que la 6 mm Remington.

Exclusive Shootout: 6mm Creedmoor vs. the 6.5 The 6.5 Creedmoor has made quite a name for itself in long-range precision shooting, but the newer 6mm Creedmoor is giving it a real run for its money. When Hornady introduced the 6.5 Creedmoor about 10 years ago, competitive shooters took note of the fact that it duplicated the velocity of the earlier 6.5x47 Lapua 6 Creedmoor vs .243 AI I mean slight differences in catridge base to neck measurements im sure but to me, they are practically the same round. As far as Im concerned, making a 6 Creedmoor is a marketing gimmick designed to catch a larger fan base than calling it 243 would do 6.5 Creedmoor vs. 270 - which cartridges are an ideal companion when hunting?Finding the answer to this question is no piece of cake. But to make the task of choosing one which suits your hunting best much easier, let's walk through their most outstanding features I'd take the 6.5 CREEDMOOR over the 243 WIN as the 6.5mm bullets retain velocity better than the 6mm bullets in most styles. Current selection of 6.5 CREEDMOOR isn't as good as 243 WIN, but what is there is great for deer hunting (not the target loads of course).

The superior ballistic coefficient of the 6.5 Creedmoor does help give it a slight edge over the two other cartridges in terms of wind drift, but not a gigantic one: the .25-06 Remington only drifts 2″ more and the .270 Winchester only has a minuscule .5″ more wind drift at 500 yards Welcome to the Predator Masters Forums Be sure to visit the main Predator Master website at.

In my ongoing campaign to shine the light of reality on the 6.5 Creedmoor revolution, I've decided to run this 6.5 Creedmoor versus 270 Winchester comparison. I'm not doing this because I dislike either round. I do it because so many shooters/hunters seem to be starry-eyed confused about the long-range 6.5 Creedmoor. It's a fine little cartridge, but it's being blown all.
I don't have a lot of experience with the 6.5 Creedmoor, but I've shot my bud's a bit and I think it kicks more like a 7-08 than a .243... from prone, which adds up if shooting at distance. Not sure about AI in 243 though. Lapua offers 243 brass. And I know that you can make Creedmoor brass from 22-250, which Lapua offers, but I'd lean towards the 243 myself. I'm be more inclined to go 243.

A straight 243. win will be a little faster and the actual wind difference isn't normally enough to matter. The 243. win will have a touch lighter recoil.

In the 1950s, Warren Page, legendary firearms editor for Field and Stream magazine, almost immediately after the .308 Winchester's introduction, necked-down a .308 case to accept a .24 caliber bullet. Winchester soon came out with their standardized version of a necked down .308 they dubbed the .243 Winchester. They saw.
My favorite though is the 6.5 Creedmoor out to 600 yards, if I'm expecting shots beyond that I move to my 6.5 STW or now 6.5-300 Weatherby. At traditional hunting distances 0-300 yards they are virtually indistinguishable other than you really need premium bullets in the 25-06 to prevent wide shallow wounding on shoulder shots up close or just shoot rib cage only and they will drop right there I like the 6.5 Creedmoor and think that it has 2 advantages over the 260; great factory ammo and the shorter case allows for a better fit in 700 SA factory specs magazines with the longer/heavier bullets over 130 grains. The 129 grain Hornady and 130 grain AB have worked well for me in a variety on 6.5mm bore rifles. BP-B2 Re: 6.5 Creedmoor VS 243 AI [Re: Dude270] #11268359 06/24/16: Joined. Re: AR10 .243 vs 6.5 Creedmoor Out of those two the 6.5 Creedmoor is the way to go in an AR platform due to case length.

The 6.5 Creedmoor came onto the scene just about a decade later as a result of the work of Dave Emary of Hornady and Dennis DeMille of Creedmoor Sports, who paired to come up with a long-range target cartridge. The 6.5mm bore diameter was an obvious choice, but the .260 Remington case was too long to allow the use of the high B.C. bullets and still maintain the maximum overall length suitable. Jeremy's recent article was fun and humorous on the 6.5 Creedmoor vs. .308 Win comparison and it ruffled some feathers. He did make an exceptional point as to bolt actions and semi-auto rifles.

The 6.5 CM will hit harder at long range but it also has more recoil. 400 yards is a long shot with the .243 with a normal 9.25 to 10 barrel twist.
