Is the 6.5 Creedmoor that better at killing elk than a .264 Win Mag or a .260 Remington?6.5 MM CREEDMOOR COULD BECOME LEGAL ROUND FOR ELK
The Pennsylvania Board of Game Commissioners today gave preliminary approval to a measure that would permit the state’s elk hunters to use the 6.5 mm Creedmoor round and related .26 caliber firearms.
Existing regulations require elk hunters to use firearms that are .27 caliber or more, with bullets of at least 130 grains. But after a review, the Game Commission has determined that increasingly popular firearms in the .26 caliber range provide adequate and commonly accepted kinetic energies to efficiently and ethically harvest elk.
The change would allow use of .26 caliber firearms with bullets of 120 grains or more for elk hunting.
The measure will be brought back to the July meeting for a final vote.
