G9 Defense 6.5 Creedmoor 120gr Solid Copper Super Match

Post Falls, ID. – (April 24th, 2024) – G9 Defense premium defensive ammunition, is pleased to announce new 6.5 Creedmoor 120gr Solid Copper Super Match ammunition with ALPHA Brass. G9 Super Match technology is used in rifle projectiles intended for target, competition, and training applications.

The new G9 Defense 6.5 Creedmoor 120gr Solid Copper Super Match with ALPHA Brass utilizes high muzzle velocities and high ballistic coefficients to achieve shorter times of flight, flatter trajectories, and less wind drift compared to other match bullets on the market. G9 Super Match rounds take a shooter’s long-range capability to the next level.

The new 6.5 Super Match’s advancements in internal ballistics come from patented side geometry that allow for less friction in the barrel, resulting in faster muzzle velocities at SAAMI standard pressures and lower barrel temperature during a firing string. These properties are enhanced by metallurgy selectionthe of all copper G9 Super Match bullets. The projectile features multiple bands machined into its side, which decreases bearing surface and pressures without diminishing ballistic coefficient. Combining these design benefits with the most rigorous load development and testing standards, G9 offers rounds with high muzzle velocities while maintaining extremely low standard deviations.

This new bullet is an all machine-turned solid copper or brass projectile that offers significant improvement in consistency over traditional jacketed lead bullets, which often have minor inconsistencies in density. By machine turning the projectiles G9 produces a round with a lower standard deviation of ballistic coefficient than any other method of production. At extended ranges, a low standard deviation in BC is more meaningful than standard deviation in muzzle velocity, resulting in higher accuracy at extended ranges.

Alpha Munitions shares a kindred spirit with G9 Defense: the eternal pursuit of ballistic perfection. Their Optimized Case Head Design (OCD) far exceeds performance standards typically associated with cases. Their innovative technology is combined with industry-leading manufacturing standards and the result is second-to-none. Their elevated level of performance, combined with uncanny consistency, makes their brass the obvious match for G9’s 6.5 Creedmoor brass projectile line. Expect single digit standard deviations and next level accuracy. Learn more about Alpha Munitions at www.alphamunitions.com

    Jeez, what did they measure that BC with? A couple of pie pans and a stopwatch? This isn’t 2005 anymore.

    If they’re serious that this has a G1 Form Factor that is 16% better than a .264 cal 140 gr Berger Hybrid then they’re smoking crack.

    Even a super smooth lathe-turned 375 cal 407 gr Berger ELR Match Solid has a G1 FF of .404…and these guys are claiming their little 120gr number has G1 FF of .392….bonkers.

    Not likely that anyone has used a G1 to project BC for a decade..

    Perhaps they used a G1 to model the high BC coupled with the low sectional density of copper/brass?

    To serve the customer and shed what appears to be snake oil salesmanship, G9 should show a drag curve / actual charted projectile path at a practical spread of initial velocities.

    • Mythbuster says:

      It’s either marketing hype, or just bad engineering on the part of G9.

      In reality, it’s probably some combination of both.

    • PB says:

      Yeah, it is odd. If I’m shopping for a match round to take my “long-range capability to the next level”, I’m not going to consider a company that only has a G1 BC, and especially such a suspicious G1 BC.

    And.. showing muzzle velocities at the more common 16, 18, 20 and 22′ barrel length would be useful.
