Federal Premium Adds 6.5 Creedmoor to Trophy Copper Line

Federal Big Game bullet

ANOKA, Minnesota – August 2, 2017 – Federal Premium Ammunition is pleased to announce it has added a 120-grain 6.5 Creedmoor offering to its popular Trophy Copper lineup. The load combines the hottest cartridge in shooting with the proven Trophy Copper bullet to create one of the most effective hunting loads available. Shipments of this new ammunition are being delivered to dealers.

The 6.5 Creedmoor started out as a target round, but hunters have quickly adopted it for its long-range accuracy, ample power and manageable recoil. Trophy Copper makes the most of the platform, thanks to a copper, polymer-tipped bullet that retains 99 percent of its weight, penetrates deep and expands consistently. Its grooved shank increases accuracy across a wide range of firearms, and the nickel-plated case prevents corrosion and aids in easier, faster extraction. Trophy Copper is also available in 20 additional loads from 243 Win. to 338 Win. Magnum.

Features & Benefits
• 120-grain 6.5 Creedmoor load offers long-range accuracy, manageable recoil and ample power for medium and big game
• Copper construction provides up to 99 percent weight retention for the deepest penetration in an expanding bullet
• Tipped bullet cavity is optimized for expansion across a broad velocity range
• Grooved bullet shank for increased accuracy across a wide range of firearms
• Polymer tip and boat-tail design increase the ballistic coefficient for higher downrange velocity, energy and less bullet drop

P65CRDTC1 / 6.5 Creedmoor, 120-grain Trophy Copper / $47.95

Video: Hunting Elk in Arizona in “What Had Changed”


The Mountain Project has dropped a new video with hunters taking on bull elk in Arizona.

From The Mountain Project:

“Hunting is really a series of decisions. And those decisions determine the outcome of the hunt. Deciding when to shoot and when not to shoot is perhaps the most difficult of them all. And is something Cody Voermans doesn’t take lightly, especially when the only shot is a long range shot. It’s an ethical dilemma we all face at one time or another, but having the right tools and the right practice, makes the decision a little bit easier.”
