In the history of long range competition shooting, there may not be any more famous name than Creedmoor.
Competition shooting was very popular in the last half of the 19th Century, and the newly formed National Rifle Association (1871) worked with the New York State legislature to acquire and develop 70 acres of land bought from a Mr. Creed near what is now Queens, New York on Long Island. The Creedmoor Rifle Range was opened in June of 1873 for the purpose of holding matches and promoting long-distance rifle shooting.
In 2007, Hornady developed the 6.5mm Creedmoor centerfire rifle cartridge which while a close cousin to the .300 Winchester Magnum in trajectory, offers the benefits of lower recoil and shorter case length – enabling it to work in the AR-10 platform.
So, following on the success of their Windham Weaponry .308 models, Windham Weaponry proudly introduces the Windham Weaponry 6.5 Creedmoor Rifle. This 20″ barreled tack driver offers an appealing combination of features and accessories for the dedicated long distance shooter. Take one out to the range, and you’re sure to make Mr. Creed proud!
