Recently, the 6.5 Creedmoor style of short action rifle has been gaining a foot in the industry. The 6.5 Creedmoor comes with a case that is similar but not the same as that of the .308 Winchester. It features some skinnier and lighter bullets thus propels them faster as compared to the .308 win counterpart. As a result, it has gained popularity amongst the medium to long range shooters. It is, therefore, one of the best short action rifle types for shooting between 500 and 1000 yards.
In this review, we purpose to give details on the 6.5 Creedmoor Vs 308 win. Those who will find this discussion to be of great interest are the hunters, law enforcement agencies, the recreational shooters as well as the aspiring tactical workmen among others.
It is clear that the 6.5 Creedmoor has been designed for better ballistic performance as compared to the 308 Winchester. Technology has been advancing. By this, you can be able to at least ascertain or even suspect that there should be advancement on a product designed 50 years after another.
Whereas the 308 Win came into action in 1952, the 6.5 Creedmoor was designed just the other day in 2007. Its design was focused on better long range performance within the bolt action platform. If you are looking for a rifle that can’t go wrong in ballistics, then consider the 6.5 Creedmoor. However, if you are looking for an arm that can easily be loaded as its rounds can be found in virtually any gun store, I would rather you go for the 308 Win.
