What is a 6.5 Creedmoor rifle good for?
It’s an excellent choice for deer, antelope, and even coyotes and hogs. It’s most definitely on the light side for elk and moose, and while it works well on more lightweight African plains game, it does have its limits, especially on species like zebra, wildebeest and eland.

The 6.5 Creedmoor is just built better to handle the high-BC bullets long-range shooters demand.
