6.5 Creedmoor with the Lapua 10.1 g (156 gr) Mega hunting bullet

While the 6.5 Creedmoor was originally designed for long range target shooting, it has during its short lifespan already gained a reputation as a viable hunting caliber. Lapua’s 6.5 Creedmoor range of factory-loaded cartridges is now complemented with the addition of the 6,5 mm 10,1 g / 155 gr Soft Point MEGA projectile. This hunting bullet is known for an amazing accuracy almost matching bench rest bullets, and it has established its reputation as an excellent moose hunting bullet in the Nordic countries for decades. The reliable MEGA locking holds the bullet jacket and core tightly together, even in a hard bone hit. With the soft recoil and range performance of the 6.5 Creedmoor combined with our top components, we expect this cartridge to become a favorite with red deer, fallow deer and white-tailed deer hunters.
