Rated 5 out of 5 by from Getting Sub Moa and Better One 3 shot group I got in the same hole at 100 yds. Also shot at 200 yds and got the round to impact on an existing bullet hole I was aiming for. I put the rifle down and called it a day while I was ahead.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 6.5 Creedmoor out of a Bergara HMR B14 Was getting great hits at 175yds on a 8" plate, probably 2-3" grouping. Rifles shoots better than me.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor packaging I was happy to received the famous 140 grains cartridges. At first glance, the box looks perfect but when I opened it and I saw each cartriges beiing supported right on the soft point. I stopped breathing..... the 20 rounds were not anymore 'round' but flat with sharp edges all around. To me that was it ....the precision is GONE. As far as I am concern, I will make sure to use them only with young hunters who wants to try a 6.5MM and gain confidence with a rifle. Beiing an engineer for over 39 years in the aircraft industry, I have seen bad designs in the packaging resulting into damaged (expensive) parts. I do recommend to review the plastic racks that supports the cartridges to avoid any contact with the a SOFT tip as we have right now. Please pay attention to this recommendation. Thanks.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Awful Ran through 3 boxes of this thinking my rifle needed broken in. Turns out the dinner plate accuracy was just the ammo. Switched brands and saved $3 and now I’m stacking holes. Terrible don’t waste your money

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Accurate and capable of long range Ive bought a lot of this and have been pleased. Using my ruger precision, I've hit 0 moa at 218yds (200m) . And hit 6 inch steel at 546 yds (500m). I'll be attempting 875 yds (800m) and 1093 yds (1000m) yd shots this summer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Updated review This is my updated review after my sub-moa accuracy review. This ammo works great at all distances. I have taken a whitetail doe at 30 yards, bullet entered the chest from the front and exited through the shoulder, with decent expansion. Took a Coyote at 75 yards through and through lung shot, dropped on impact. Took a opossum with a lung shot with not that much damage to the pelt. Took a raccoon at 100 yards with a spine shot with minimal damage to the pelt. Shot 2 wild pigs at 450 yards but did not find them, and 1 at 500 that was tailing the pack, which I did find. Just barley hit the back of the lungs and past through the guts and exited.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Poor Load in CA rifles Bought a box of the 6.5 Creedmoor Non-Typical from academy two weeks ago before heading the the range. Was shooting another brand and wanted to see how these shot out of my Christensen Arms Mesa. Loaded three up in the clip, went to rack a round and bolt wouldn’t close. Tried 10 of the 20 bullets and none worked, guess is the bullet wasn’t seated well enough. Never had issues with federal in other guns but these just don’t work for me. Will continue shooting fusions out of my other rifle though.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lightening Bolts I'm shooting this in a Ruger American Predator and have taken 3 Axis deer in the Texas Hill Country and each animal went down with one shot, running from zero to thirty yards. I got complete penetration on all three shots which ranged from 65 to 200 yards
