This 6.5 Creedmoor cartridge by Winchester features a 125 grain open tip range bullet. Although easily mistaken for a hollow point, an open tip bullet isn’t actually designed to do anything fancy once it has entered a live target. Winchester gave this bullet’s tip a little opening to provide passage to molten lead, which conformed to its new home’s dimensions exactly. This bullet’s resultant exceptional balance ensures its flat, consistent trajectory.
An open tip bullet’s base is totally jacketed. That means propellant gasses can affect every bullet in this box in precisely the same fashion, promoting even greater accuracy. As a bonus, because this bullet’s core isn’t exposed at the base, it is also safe from evaporating when heated during ignition. That causes less bore fouling, and there’s no need to breathe in toxic core vapors while you’re zeroing in on targets hundreds of yards away!
Winchester’s American-made range loads never disappoint. These rounds’ casings won’t jam your rifle after you’ve made precision shots, and their uniform dimensions grant their bullets consistent seating. Along with these rounds’ precision primers and propellant charges, you can expect the steady muzzle velocity that is needed for sharpshooting. With its .371 ballistic coefficient, this round’s bullet maintains a Mach 2 velocity even after having travelled past 250 yards!
