SIG Sauer continues to expand its line of premium-grade Elite Copper Hunting ammunition with the addition of a 6mm Creedmoor load.

Featuring an 80-grain all-copper bullet that delivers deep penetration and consistent 1.8x diameter expansion with maximum terminal ballistic performance, the 6mm Creedmoor Elite Copper Hunting ammunition is a highly accurate load for hunting numerous species of medium-size game.

This fast, flat-shooting cartridge has a high ballistic coefficient allowing it to push through wind with less drag and drift, increasing accuracy at longer ranges. Muzzle velocity is 3,300 fps and muzzle energy is 1,935 ft-lbs.

“6mm Creedmoor ammunition is in high demand as is the 6.5 Creedmoor load,” said Brad Criner, Senior Director, Brand Management and Business Development, SIG Sauer Ammunition. “Our customers have been asking for both and we are happy to now offer these two hot hunting cartridges in our Elite Copper Hunting line.”
