The new G9 Defense 6.5 Creedmoor Super Match round consists of Alpha OCD brass cases that are consistently drawn and feature a reinforced case head for added safety and a uniform distribution of pressures vital to match ammunition needed before the bullet ever leaves the barrel. The projectiles themselves are a unique all-copper design with a higher brass content for better lubricity downbore. This translates to better accuracy and less barrel heat than loads with a lower zinc content. The virtue of these machine-turned monolithic rounds is their lack of impurities in lead as well as dispensing with the need for a separate copper jacket and lead core where imperfections and air pockets arise in the manufacturing process.

This new match offering for the match-ready 6.5 Creedmoor cartridge has a rated muzzle velocity of 2,950 feet per second. It is currently available in boxes of 20 with an MSRP of $54.99.
