  1. Hammon

    I have a 6 Creed and have been using the 87g V-Max with good results, so when Hornady released the 95g V-max for the 6.5 Creed, I was very interested as I had just purchased a 6.5 the week before the release. The 6.5 ammo was rated at 3300 fps out of a 24″ test barrel, surpassing the 3210 fps rating for the 6mm ammo (24″ test barrel). So, pushing a heavier bullet faster out of basically the same cartridge? Hmm. I was curious.

    I’ve been dialing in my Creedmoor with various rounds in an effort to see what rounds perform the best, with consistent results. I’m pushing these rounds through a 22″ H-Bar, w/ 1:8 twist and sighted in with Vortex High Power glass. To say that I am pleased with the results ranging out to 1,000 yards, is an understatement. Due to limited supply, I don’t have the resources or supply to take it out much further than that. However, the Varmint Express is not only on the top of my list, it has earned a spot among the top 3 performers through my rifle. Also, at the top of my list is the Hornady Match, 140gr, ELD and the Hornady Outfitter, 120gr, GMX. Despite their best efforts and current offerings, Winchester and Federal both have fallen behind the times. This of course is my humble opinion, I’d love to hear yours.

    This is a great round for coyotes and other predators
    Makes me 6.5 cm a great predator

  4. Mark

    This stuff is incredible. I can’t wait to see what it does to the coyotes we’re having heck with. I highly recommend this round

  5. Vandan

    Extremely Accurate
    Great Ammo…. Stupid accurate! I’ll be buying again!

    Devastating on coyotes. This really puts the smack down on them.

  7. Matt

    6.5 Ruger PR, had too many coyotes running off not getting enough expansion on them using the 129 gn SST. Stepped down to the 95gn and the last 3 were DRT. They work for me and my equipment!

  8. Chuck

    Using these rounds in my Ruger Hawkeye Long-Range Target Rifle in 6.5 mm Creedmoor (26″ barrel, 1:8 twist), I get the best group size consistency of the five different ammo brands/bullet weights I’ve trialed so far. Based on 30 rounds, my chronometer indicates an average muzzle velocity of 2675 fps with a standard deviation of 23. My particular rifle “likes” the 140 grain bullet mass and the bullet design of this round. Hornady Match ammo delivers consistently good results. Your rifle might “prefer” a different bullet mass and velocity, so also try the 120 & 129 grain Hornady Match or Superformance ammo if you are still seeking what ammo your rifle “likes” best.

  9. Scott

    Grouped 5 shots inside an inch at 100 yards. This was shot from a custom LR 308 platform with a 16 inch Christensen Arms barrel. Can’t wait to see what this does for the coyotes!!!

  10. Neville

    Shoots ok out of my gas gun .7 to .5 over all for coyote hunting is a great bullet the 95gr really hits them hard DRT. I have shot coyotes from 20 yards to 500 with them.

  11. Gunter

    My AR 10 6.5 will shoot 1/2inch group with the 120 ELDs but,1.25inch groups best with the 95 grain v max

  12. Daniael

    Love the 95gr V-Max bullet for the 6.5 creedmoor! But the varmint express factory load did not group well at all through my Browning X-Bolt Hell’s Canyon although I have started loading the same bullet with 42gr IMR 4064 and wow now I’m getting 1/2″ groups So with that said I can’t use the varmint express in my gun but all barrels are different!

  13. David

    This is very consistent, reliable, and accurate ammo…. It’s a pleasure to shoot.

  14. Roger

    I bought these for my son who had a long range competition he wanted to shoot at his club. He swears by Hornady ELD and is the only ammo he uses at matches. Luckily, Midway had them in stock and the lowest price I could find.

  15. Bjorn SD

    When I bought my Ruger RPR in 6.5, I was told by others that had them to buy these. They will shoot the best. I had to test though, so I ordered 6 different types of ammo, all “match” grade, 2 box’s each. The Hornady match ELD in 140 produced tiny, 5/16 5 shot holes followed by the Hornady ELD in 147. Other than Fiocci exacta nobody else was close. I have ran 615 rounds through the rifle to date, in all conditions and they have performed flawlessly at ranges to 500. Love this ammo!
