This 6.5 Creedmoor round by Winchester features a 140 grain Ballistic Silvertip bullet. The bullet takes its name from its distinctive colored polymer tip, which helps to prevent deformation in the magazine, creates a uniform ballistic coefficient, and rams into the underlying nose cavity on impact to trigger massive expansion.
The rest of the Ballistic Silvertip comes in three layers. On the outside is a black oxide coating, which reduces friction and barrel fouling. In the middle is a contoured jacket that controls more reliable expansion. In the center is a lead core, which is alloyed to increase its strength and resultant weight retention. It all comes together to form an especially accurate and deadly polymer tipped hunting bullet!
This American-made round is loaded with a sensitive Boxer primer and clean burning propellant to give it a stable 2,700 fps muzzle velocity. Winchester’s nickel-plated brass case ought to swim smoothly through any type of action and will become reloadable having done so.
