G9 Defense is rolling out new 6.5 Creedmoor 120-grain Solid Copper Super Match ammunition that uses Alpha Brass cases. G9 Super Match technology is used in rifle projectiles intended for target, competition and training applications.

The new G9 Defense 6.5 Creedmoor 120-grain Solid Copper Super Match with Alpha Brass uses 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, taking your long-range shooting capability to the next level.

The new 6.5 Creedmoor 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 selection the 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 benefits with the most rigorous load development and testing standards means that 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' Optimized Case Head Design (OCD) exceeds performance standards typically associated with ammunition cases. Their innovative technology is combined with industry-leading manufacturing standards and the result is second-to-none. This elevated level of performance, combined with uncanny consistency, makes Alpha Brass the obvious match for G9’s 6.5 Creedmoor brass projectile line.
