  • The NEW 8.6 Creedmoor, is this the .300blk Improved?

    Coming in 2019 is a new round in the Creedmoor family. Although at this point the name make change, maybe the .338Creedmoor?
    It's purpose: supersonic and subsonic performance out to medium ranges with a short barrel, the ability to run in bolt actions and semi-autos, feeding out of standard .308 magazines, with the option to run it with silencers for incredibly quiet supersonic performance

    It should be interesting to see how this new cartridge develops. However, I predict that it will never gain the popularity of the .300 BLK nor the 6.5 Creedmoor. But only time will tell.

    The 8.6 will require an AR10 platform whereas the .300 BLK fits nicely in an AR-15 platform. For hunting purposes the 6.5 Creedmoor supersonic makes more sense.

      I'm not so sure any of this makes much sense anymore.
      They keep it up and we'll be singing that old cigarette commercial!
      "A silly millimeter longer!"
      It's really becoming a bit overwhelming! LOL!

        You guys are funny trying to imagine/dream a new platform and cartridge - for what, nobody knows.

        You remind me of sail boaters on the Lake, they get the slowest kind of boat they can and then all they want to do is race.

          ??? Jimbo, I didn't dream up the new cartridge. Was just commenting on it. I'm satisfied with the 6.5 Creedmoor and 300 BLK. Those will be my primary cartridges this coming deer season.

              There is nothing wrong trying different combinations,and market results. Otherwise we all would still be using 30. 30 lever actions.

                It actually is an 8.6 mm bullet. It's not transposed PH. So, whatever, as far as it's usefulness.

                  The military is looking at 6.8, not 8.6. 8.6 would make the ammo too heavy.
                  And Tree, you are older than I am, by a bunch.

                    I believe the reason the military is looking at a more powerful round is our potential enemies have copied our armor plates and the 5.56 won't penetrate them.
