While the 6.5 Creedmoor continues to increase in popularity in competitive shooting, there is also a growing demand for a match solution for .260 Remington. Lapua has risen to the occasion and presents new factory-loaded cartridges designed to conquer the market and outperfom the competition at ranges up to 1,000 m/yds and even beyond.
The rounds are loaded with the 8,8 gram / 136 grain Scenar-L bullet. Introduced in 2013, it has ever since become a staple midrange and long range match projectile in 6.5 mm applications.
Both calibers are C.I.P. approved. Even if the .260 Rem. cartridge has a slightly shorter max overall length compared to the 6.5 Creedmoor round, it still performs similar to the latter in terms of muzzle velocity and hit accuracy. The biggest difference between the two is that the 6.5 Creedmoor case is Small Rifle Primer while the .260 Rem. has a Large Rifle Primer pocket.
|If you are looking for a podium finish in PRS, silhouette or other accuracy disciplines, Lapua’s new match grade rounds are guaranteed to help you reach your peak potential. These cartridges will also meet the high demands of Military / Law Enforcement professionals.
The new Lapua cartridges will be hitting the markets in the summer of 2021. Flight Trajectory data coming soon!
