6.5 Creedmoor

Reloading for 6.5 Creedmoor

Fitting in between the 7mm-08 and the 243 Winchester, the 6.5 Creedmoor is excellent for long range shooting as well as hunting CXP2 (deer, antelope) sized animals. Ballistically, 6.5mm bullets are better suited for 1000 yard shots than a .30 cal bullet like the 308 Winchester uses. They’re longer, faster, and stay supersonic to longer […]

LAR-15 Magazines in Canada

LAR-15 magazines are pistol magazines designed to take (10) rounds of .223 or 5.56x45mm. Normally, semi-automatic rifle magazines are limited to 5 rounds but because this magazine was designed for a pistol (the RRA LAR-15), it can take 10 rounds.

Well, the somewhat boring answer is that they’re all pretty good. Firearms media and old timers love to talk up their favorite cartridges, but pretty much any of the popular hunting cartridges perform¬†ballistically and on-game very much alike. I’m also assuming Deer, Elk, and Moose are the intended game; this isn’t the article you want […]
