In a recent thread on Accurateshooter.com, Kevin Thomas from Lapua stated that they are currently working on 6.5 Creedmoor brass. This may be the first reason we have to look forward to the 2017 SHOT Show.
“May as well go ahead and drive a stake through the heart of this thread right now; Yes, we currently have 6.5 Creedmoor in to works. We discussed this one at length in Finland during a new products development meeting a few months back. Several of us were pushing this one rather hard, due to the tremendous feedback we’d taken on the cartridge, and the popularity that the cartridge has already earned. Not a big one in Europe, but the US market is a significant share of our business, and we most definitely do listen to customer input. The first set ups are currently being done, and the initial trial run and in-house testing will be done shortly after that. If all goes well, we’ll move on with production and hopefully make the formal introduction of this one during the SHOT show in January.
Hang on guys, it’s coming.”
