6.5 Creedmoor – Reloader 15 vs Factory Load

Reloading 6.5 Creedmoor with Reloader 15

Out on the range today I will test two different loads — loaded with Reloader 15 putting it up against Hornady Factory ammunition. This started to just find a light load for the medium range distance 100 to 300 yards with Reloader 15 and lighter bullets but my buddy showed up with Hornady 6.5 Creedmoor 140gr factory rounds and we decided to make an impromptu video with the gopro.

Dies Used:

The loads were constructed with Redding Competition Dies and lightly crimped with the Redding taper crimp die that is part of the set.

Loads:

1st Load
Bullet — 107gr Sierra Match King
Powder — Reloader 15 — 40.5gr
Primer — S&B Large Rifle Primer
Case — Hornady

2nd Load
Bullet — 109gr Lapua Scenar
Powder — Reloader 15 — 40.5gr
Primer — S&B Large Rifle Primer
Case — Hornady

3rd Factory Load
Hornady 140gr ELD Match
