HSM Introduces Low-Recoil Rounds in 6.5 Creedmoor

posted on December 24, 2019
HSM Ammunition has engineered a low-recoiling variant of 6.5 Creedmoor, with full, 140-grain hunting bullets. To achieve a felt recoil they claim is 47-percent lighter than standard rounds, HSM partnered with Sierra Bullets to develop this proprietary bullet, with a distinctive HSM-orange ballistic tip. Utilizing a "secret" blend of temperature-tolerant powders, HSM measures the round's muzzle velocity at 2340 fps and its muzzle energy at 1,695 ft.-lbs., with a ballistic coefficient of .546. For more information on 6.5 Creedmoor Low Recoil, or any of the other chambering HSM has to offer (including a whole range of other calibers in their Low Recoil line), please visit hsmammunition.com.
