SR 6mm CM (Small Rifle primer)
6mm Creedmoor Small pocket
1.908 - 1.912 O.A.L.
The SR 6mm CM is our small rifle primer version of the 6mm Creedmoor. Just like our SR 6.5 CM, we utilize the standard .080" flash hole diameter, as we feel this gives better ignition with slower burning and hard to ignite powders.*
The 6mm Creedmoor is the little brother to the very popular 6.5 Creedmoor. It has similar ballistics to the .243 Winchester, but its shorter length allows long, heavy bullets to be seated in the magazine. This caliber is an excellent choice for hunting, but its popularity was gained as a competition cartridge. Some of the new competitions, such as the Precision Rifle Series, require a lot of shooting and this cartridge is easy on the shoulder, even compared to the 6.5 Creedmoor. There are several companies now making bolt action and AR-10 type rifles for this caliber.
*As with all types of cases this large with small primer pockets, it will require care in powder and primer selection in cooler temperatures to prevent hang fires. Single-based propellents are generally easier to ignite and a quality primer such as the Remington 7 1/2 BR are recommended.
