The product of the week is the 6.5 Creedmoor snap cap. Harbour Arms was the first to offer this caliber in a snap cap. This snap cap is the number one seller.
I have been told the 6.5 Creedmoor was conceived by Dave Emory (Hornady) and Dennis Demille (Creedmoor Sports) over a dinner one night. They were looking for something that would shoot the high ballistic coefficient 6.5 mm bullets in a case that was short enough to fit into an AR10 magazine. That was 2007. The 6.5 Creedmoor has taken off like wild fire. The last time I looked, there were 13 brands of factory ammunition for it. Most of the rifle manufacturers are chambering their rifles in 6.5 Creedmoor.
If you have chosen the 6.5 Creedmoor for your rifle, consider some of our snap caps to go with it.
6.5 Creedmoor Precision Snap Caps
In 2007, Hornady's Chief Ballistician Dave Emary and National High Power Champion Dennis DeMille collaborated in the design of a new High Power Cartridge. Dennis was looking for a 6.5 mm round that could utilize the very high ballistic coefficient bullets in a magazine length case. The 6.5 Creedmoor was developed and it is taking the High Power matches by storm. It is offered in several rifles and at least one service rifle.
I want to welcome everyone to the new Harbour Arms website. This is my effort to bring my site up to 21st century standards. Of course I am still locked in the 20th century but that is a personal problem.
Please peruse the site and look over all the products. The snap caps can be found in calibers not offered by anyone else. The other products are items that precision and target rifle shooters will find useful. Products on my site are used by me. If I don't like it, you will not see it.
I have been a shooter and handloader for 45 years. My love for long range rifle shooting has come after terms in Bullseye pistol, IPSC, and three gun shooting. I intend to use this blog to introduce new products you will find useful as well as tips for handloading. Again, I have tried many tools and techniques in handloading and I know what works. Perhaps more importantly, I know what doesn't work for handloading!
