TFB Review: Sellier & Bellot 6.5 Creedmoor Tactical – 1 USD each

As the popularity of the 6.5 Creedmoor increases, we’re looking for accurate ammunition which doesn’t cost a fortune to shoot. In Europe the caliber is only starting to grow in popularity, so the volumes are low – prices sky high.

Shooters want accurate ammunition, for free and we want it now!

This test was done in Europe, the home market for Sellier & Bellot (Czech Republic), and as the local dealer showed me their new 6.5 Creedmoor I wanted to try it.

To my knowledge, this is Sellier & Bellot’s first 6.5 Creedmoor, but there is a soft point available as well.

For a box of thousand, you pay about a dollar per round.

The box said “Tactical” (Hmmm….) and the bullet was FMJ. It came at a nice price. All these things added up to some kind of contradiction when it comes to long range accuracy.

I was skeptical, to say the least. But I was hoping for the best.
