Federal Premium has added two new 6.5 Creedmoor and 6mm Creedmoor loads to the Gold Medal lineup. Federal's Gold Medal line has long been the standard that many other precision rifle loads have been measured against thanks to a proven track record.

The 6.5 Creedmoor load features a 140-grain Sierra MatchKing bullet and the 6mm Creedmoor uses the well regarded 105-grain Berger Hybrid bullet.



We had a chance to put some of the 130-grain Gold Medal Bergers through several rifles and found that it was well deserving of the Gold Medal name. If the 140-grain 6.5 loads and the 105-grain 6mm Creed loads perform as expected, they should be favorites of PRS and precision shooters all over.

Suggested prices for the 6mm Creedmoor 105-grain Berger Hybrid load is $36.95 for 20 rounds and the 6.5 Creedmoor 140-grain Sierra MatchKing load has an MSRP of $33.95 for 20 rounds.
