Small Primer 6.5 Creedmoor
1.908 - 1.912 O.A.L.
This is our Small Rifle Primer version of the 6.5 Creedmoor. The 6.5 Creedmoor was designed as a target caliber in 2007 by Hornady but has become an extremely popular hunting caliber as well. While it isn't as long as some of the other 6.5 caliber short action calibers, such as the .260 Remington, the Creedmoor utilizes a 30° shoulder and very little body taper to help it achieve similar ballistics. The shorter length also gives it more versatility as far as bullet seating depth is concerned. Almost every major rifle manufacturer offers either a bolt-action rifle or a modern sporting rifle in 6.5 Creedmoor caliber due to its versatility and inherent accuracy.

Our SR6.5CM brass uses a Small Rifle Primer. Many target shooters prefer the Small Primer for the increased consistency and accuracy. While other small pocket manufacturers use a smaller than standard flash hole, Starline uses our standard .080" flash hole, as we feel that it gives better ignition with some of the slower powders and in cooler conditions* (and you won't be breaking off decapping pins either!)The Small Primer version also maintains primer pocket size much better than the large primer version under higher pressures. For our Large Primer version please see our 6.5 Creedmoor case.

*As with all types of cases this large with small primer pockets, it will require care in powder and primer selection in cooler temperatures to prevent hang fires. Single-based propellents are generally easier to ignite and a quality primer such as the Remington 7 1/2 BR are recommended.

6mm Creedmoor Small pocket
1.908 - 1.912 O.A.L.

The SR 6mm CM is our small rifle primer version of the 6mm Creedmoor. Just like our SR 6.5 CM, we utilize the standard .080" flash hole diameter, as we feel this gives better ignition with slower burning and hard to ignite powders.*

The 6mm Creedmoor is the little brother to the very popular 6.5 Creedmoor. It has similar ballistics to the .243 Winchester, but its shorter length allows long, heavy bullets to be seated in the magazine. This caliber is an excellent choice for hunting, but its popularity was gained as a competition cartridge. Some of the new competitions, such as the Precision Rifle Series, require a lot of shooting and this cartridge is easy on the shoulder, even compared to the 6.5 Creedmoor. There are several companies now making bolt action and AR-10 type rifles for this caliber.

For the Large Primer Pocket version, please see our 6mm Creedmoor .

*As with all types of cases this large with small primer pockets, it will require care in powder and primer selection in cooler temperatures to prevent hang fires. Single-based propellents are generally easier to ignite and a quality primer such as the Remington 7 1/2 BR are recommended.
