6.5 Creedmoor 120 Gr. Hornady GMX
The 6.5 Creedmoor is currently the fast growing and most popular medium caliber cartridges in existence, and for good reason. It is accurate, fast, flat shooting and its high BC bullets make it great for long distance shooting. While it made its fame as a competition cartridge, it also excels as a hunting cartridge for medium size North American game, including large mule deer. For that application, many hunters desire more penetration and weight retention than is typically possible from traditional lead core bullets. The Hornady 120 GMX® is our choice of premium bullet for that application. The 6.5 MM 120 grain GMX® offers up to 50% more penetration, 24” or more, plus higher weight retention. It generally retains nearly 100% of its weight compared to 50-70% for lead core bullets. The excellent GMX® design causes the bullet to open immediately upon impact, over a wide range of velocities, causing large diameter wound cavities that anchor game quickly and humanely. Monolithic gilding metal bullets, because they retain their weight, do not need to be as heavy for caliber and application as conventional bullets, and can thus be pushed to higher velocity. You will find this load to be a reliable new partner in your hunting adventures.
