Shoot like SOCOM: The 6.5 Creedmoor cartridge & its long distance relationship with CMMG’s Endeavor Mk3 | Guns America Digest

A specialized group from the US DoD replaced the MK13 bolt-action 300 Winchester Magnums with a 20-inch semiautomatic AR-10 in 6.5 Creedmoor last May 2020. Compared to snipers used by special operations, the 6.5 Creedmoor has 33% longer effective range with less recoil. At 1000 meters, it has double the hit probability, retains 30% more energy, and has 40% less wind drift. It has developed a world-class performance providing enhanced accuracy and performance while reducing ammunition and rifle weight.
