Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good long range but Temperature sensitive I use this in my Savage LRP. My range only goes to 610 yards. Shoots less than MOA at that range but is temperature sensitive. I saw a 4.25 inch rise in elevation @610 with a temperature change of 10* (75* to 85*).

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Couldn't.give a 5 Star I Love the ammo almost right on target,would be happy with except and what probably messed up accuracy is almost every bullet in the box was not smooth they have little cuts in them like if ran against something all around the bullet 4 to five cuts each. Maybe Federal can buy them back or send me some worth a darn for the $ I spent.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simply amazing! I purchased a Savage model 10 fcp sr in 6.5 creedmoor and went through the proper steps breaking in the barrel and setting it up for my zero. I used the 129 gr Winchester ammo for this. A few days later and some different ammo, Federal premium gold 130 gr, I began to set groups out to 400 yds. Pleased would be an understatement. WOW, this load with this caliber is a shooting machine. Federal nailed it, spot on. Here’ my 300 and 400 group, Federal ammo, new savage straight out the box, and I’m excited to see what this pairing can do.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Through the same hole I got a Savage chambered in 6.5 Creedmoor for Christmas. Since then I've taken it to the range three times. All I've shot through it is the Federal/Berger 6.5, and it is amazing! I shot 3 bullets through the same hole on one occasion, and have consistently gotten sub 1 MOA. Here's a pic from two days ago @ 100 yards.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from On point. 6.5 creedmore Ruger Precision Rifle. I have shot almost every bit of Hornady ammo and can’t shoot a group as tight as the one. These are all 4 round groups. In the last photo i pulled one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Unbelievably accurate with my Tikka 3tx Bought a Tikka 3tc chambered in 6.5 creedmore garanteed to get 1 MAO. Well, I tried Browning 129, Hornady 129, Hornady 120 ELD, Winchester , American Eagle.... I may have gotten few time under 1 MOA with Browning or American Eagle but was not easy. I asked other competition shooters to try my Tikka, their results were the same, just about 1 MOA... till I tried Fed Premium Gold Berger130g .... I got less than 0.6 MAO at 100 yards the first 5 shots group and constantly easily under 1 MAO. That's the ammo for my tikka

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ruger American Predator 6.5 Creedmor Just tried this today out of my Ruger American Predator 6.5 Creedmor and it's shooting a lot better than the Hornady 143 gr ELD-X that I have been shooting. Looking forward to shooting more of them.
