8.6 Creedmoor & The Fix by Q

Here is the 8.6 Creedmoor… Basically the big brother of 300 Blackout. Starting with a 6.5 Creedmoor case, shortening it, then necking it up for a 338 projectile. What does this do for us?

It gives us the same type of benefits of a 300Blk. We have a round that can fit in a .308 Winchester magazine and is devastating in both supersonic and subsonic loads.

The 8.6 Creedmoor at 155gr @ 2500fps out of a 12.5″ barrel will outperform a .308 from a 18″ barrel to around 300 Yards. And with the subsonic loads at around 300+gr @ 1000 fps, they pack a looooot of punch.

I’m really excited for the 8.6 Creedmoor that Hornady will be brining to market, and for when Q starts offering The Fix chambered in it.

You can go here to find The Fix by Q.

The 8.6 Creedmoor has been an idea 10 years in the making. And now it’s just about there…
