Lapua 6.5 Creedmoor Small Primer Pocket (100)
Produce your own powerful and accurate ammunition with Lapua 6.5 Creedmoor cases from Powder Valley. These elite brass cases are available in 100-ct boxes.
Made with Lapuaâs typical dedication to precision, our new 6.5 Creedmoor case has been refined just a bit, to make it an even better performer. Weâve opted for the small rifle primer, which normally produces an optimized ignition and better accuracy than large primers in mid-sized cartridges like the Creedmoor.
Weâve also incorporated our smaller diameter flash hole (1.5mm, rather than the industry standard 2.0mm), which has proven to provide enhanced accuracy, and is used in a number ofÂ our other accuracy oriented cases. In this respect, the new 6.5 Creedmoor joins the ranks of our other dedicated accuracy cartridges such as the .220 Russian (6mm PPC), the 6mm BR Norma, the 6.5Ã47 Lapua and the .308 Win. Palma cases.
And naturally, the 6.5 Creedmoor is made with our well known Passion for Precision. Lapua ammunition is manufactured with strictest control over the metallurgy, the forming and drawing processes and precise annealing, all performed under the watchful eyes of our production experts. For you, the handloader, that means the durability for which our cases are famous, combined with consistency and long life. Already proven in shooting competitions, we predict that the 6.5 Creedmoor will be a force to be reckoned with for many years to come.
Lapua 6.5 Creedmoor Brass Cases are a relatively new addition to the Lapua arsenal and have become one of the most popular cases available. It’s a very versatile case that has been used for both hunting and competition. For hunting, it’s a great choice for mid-sized game while it’s also known for high accuracy in match competitions. That makes the Creedmore one of Lapua’s most versatile cases.

Lapua Brass is really the best, but beware of the 6.5 Creedmoor brass being sold here. These have small rifle primer pockets. I thought it was weird when they arrived, but thought “oh well” and loaded them up and started shooting them. My rifle is a Bergara B-14 HMR. After shooting my reloads with this brass, pretty soon the bolt shroud cracked and the gun locked up. Some research showed that this was happening a lot with the Bergara rifles. The only caliber affected was the 6.5 Creedmoor. There is a good You-Tube video by Andrew Bebee about his experience with this problem. Bergara graciously re-designed the bolt shroud with a forged part and sent out replacements to everyone with the same problem. Later it was discovered that all of these cracked bolt shrouds were caused by shooting re-loads from brass with small rifle primer pockets. I was unaware of this until yesterday when I was out shooting and my new bolt with the forged bolt shroud seized up again. I came home and found a you tube video from the same Andrew Bebee who was noticing severe cratering of his small primer pockets, and in a couple of instances the primer was completely blown through. After seeing this video, I went to look at my spent brass casings and found four with deep cratering and one with a blown out primer pocket (The fifth shot of the day that seized up my bolt). If you shoot a Bergara 6.5 Creedmoor and value your rifle, DO NOT shoot re-loads with this small primer pocket brass!!!

i have fired around 8000 6.5 creedmoor with lapua brass with small primer, all reloads with a stiller action. no problems of any kind. 15 reloads. best brass i have used. previous review should check size of his firing pin.

Some of the best brass I’ve ever used. Consistent in all aspects , fire form to your gun , start low on the powder. Work up to a safe node , couldn’t be happier. Think previous reviewer started out hot, Lapua as smaller case capacity compared to some other brass. Can’t just transfer your old load over and expect it to work. Lapua is one of the best !

As stated above, Lapua is the pinnacle of brass production. I am using these necked up to .270 caliber wildcat. It’s nice to be able just to reach in a box of 100 cases and pull one out and know it’s close enough to identical from the others that it will have you cutting the previous bullet hole and you don’t even have to do anything to it unless you want to run the deburring too around the inside and outside of the case mouth (but always check it anyway…). Regarding the first and 2nd post, I once built a .22×47 Lapua that use small primers with Lapua 6.5x47L parent cases. I used a Pierce custom action with small firing pin and heavy firing pin spring. I had the same problem with pierced primers as reported above when I cranked the charge up. I tried CCI BR4, CCI 450, CCI 400, Remington 6 1/2, Remington 7 1/2, Winchester WSR, and Federal 205 with the same results. Then I talked to the smith that built the rifle and he told me it was likely due to the sharper firing pen with heavy spring as much as anything. This happened several times, but with no I’ll effects to that action. The smith warned that it would cause the firing pin to seize up if it happened repeatedly, so I decided to try something else. I switched primers to CCI No. 41 steel cased primers made for ARs that use heavy springs. Heavy springs are good because they reduce the chances of misfires from light primer strikes, and theoretically reduce the amount of time it takes to get a bullet out of the bore by milliseconds. Problem solved. Never pierced another one. I have used those same cases in a custom Savage build with “normal” firing pin and spring with NO issues on regular primers. The issue the 1st poster describes COULD be due to an overly heavy firing pin spring, if not the pin itself, or both. Should be an easy fix to swap the spring first, unless the pin is obviously very sharp (small diameter). If the pin is too sharp, you can dull it down quickly and increase the diameter slightly with a whetstone or Dremel with a medium grit sanding bit. Don’t leave it flat, though; shape it up by rounding it off. Be careful not to remove much metal or you’ll have the opposite problem – misfires (light primer strikes). There is an easy way to fix that, too, but it is beyond the scope of this discussion.

Great brass! Lowered my SD, compared to other premium brands. Very consistent. Although not recommended for factory rifles that are mass produced. Works great with custom actions with small firing pin hole. YMMV.

After several firings I weighed ten individual cases on my powder scale. I believe I had not trimmed any of these as the necks had not grown so much that trimming was needed. Average was 165.2 gr, ES 1.0 gr. That is a 0.6% variation. SD was 0.3 grains which means that you can expect 67% of cases to be within 0.3 gr of the average weight. These are amazing numbers. With the small primer pocket expect many, many firings. The price premium is fully justified.

I’m not an expert but I have read some blogs about greater consistencey achieved with the small rifle primer brass. I like the added flexibility of using small rifle for some of my brass during this drought!
