Ammoland Shooting SportsUSA -(Ammoland.com)- Federal Premium, a company know for the quality and diversity of their hunting rounds, is expanding their line-up even more in the coming months with a new line-up of ammunition.

After requests and calls from their customers, Federal Premium are showcasing their versatile, high-quality 6.5 Creedmoor rounds this year, calling 2017 “The Year of the 6.5 Creedmoor.”

Federal Premium's JJ Reich detailed the rounds with me at a Mossy Oak media event at Harpole's Heartland Lodge in Nebo, Illinios, this July.

The line-up of rounds include their 6.5 Creedmoor Non-Typical round, the 6.5 Creedmoor Fusion, the 6.5 Creedmoor Trophy Cooper and the 6.5 Creedmoor Gold Medal Berger.

6.5 Creedmoor Non-Typical

Whitetail deer stand apart from other North American big game, and Federal’s new 6.5 Creedmoor Non-Typical is just as exceptional.

The new ammunition uses a hard-hitting, soft-point bullet with a concentric jacket to provide tag-punching accuracy and consistent, lethal wound channels on any buck.

Non-Typical is loaded to meet the specific needs of serious deer hunters, with an extremely reliable Federal primer and precision-drawn Federal brass for added consistency.

Federal Fusion was the first rifle ammunition built specifically for deer hunting, and it’s is still the best. For 2017, a new 140-grain 6.5 Creedmoor cartridge joins the Fusion family, offering deer hunters a buck-stopping blend of long-range accuracy, flat trajectory, mild recoil and tag-punching power.

The Fusion family also offers hunter another exciting 6.5mm load—a 120-grain 6.5 Grendel in Fusion MSR.

Paired with the Fusion bullet’s molecularly fused jacket and pressure-formed core, both loads deliver best-in-class weight retention and expansion, plus deep penetration and reliable stopping power.

They feature a skived bullet tip for long-range expansion, plus a sleek, boat-tail design that maximizes ballistic coefficient.

Federal Premium combined the hottest cartridge in shooting with proven Trophy Copper bullet technology to create one of the most effective hunting loads available. New for 2017, the 6.5 Creedmoor Trophy Copper makes the most of the cartridge’s trademark power, accuracy and manageable recoil.

The polymer-tipped copper bullet retains 99 percent of its weight for the deepest penetration possible in an expanding bullet. Plus, the tipped bullet cavity is optimized for reliable expansion across a broad spectrum of velocities—guaranteeing maximum wound channels at a variety of ranges.

As a bonus, its grooved shank boosts accuracy in a wide range of firearms, while the nickel-plated case prevents corrosion and aids in faster, easier extraction.

New 120-grain 6.5 Creedmoor Trophy Copper is perfect for medium and big game. It also features a boat-tail design to increase ballistic coefficient for higher downrange velocities, more energy on impact and less bullet drop.

Will anyone be putting out any 26nosler ammo? Buying from Nosler is very pricey.
