Franchi Momentum Bolt Action Rifle - 6.5 Creedmoor :
The Momentum is designed to be an extension of the body, regardless of shooting position. The stock combines curvy lines and crisp checkering to yield an ideal hold in 5 frequently-used shooting positions, while the recessed swivel attachments save the left hand from recoil. The TSA recoil pad absorbs 50 percent of felt recoil and will not snag on your clothes. The action features the same blend of comfort and crispness, with its glass-smooth bolt operation and short 60-degree lift. The trigger is single stage, adjustable (2-4 lbs.) and incredibly crisp, enabling you to benefit from the tremendous accuracy potential of the free-floating barrel. The end is threaded under a knurled cover, making it easy to attach a variety of muzzle accessories.

The feature-rich Momentum makes its debut in 6 popular hunting calibers. The Momentum takes the same scope bases as the Remington model 700 (two-piece bases only)..

Revolutionary Stock
The stock of the Momentum is truly revolutionary. It combines raised curves and crisp checkering to offer the most ergonomic feel and positive hold in 5 frequently-used shooting positions. Most uniquely, the raised curves enable your supporting hand not only to grip the stock steadily, but also to exert forward or backward pressure if needed.


Easy Bolt Takedown
The one-piece bolt is spiral fluted and features 3 large-sized locking lugs for a rock-solid lockup - which translates into accuracy and reliability. The bolt is easily disassembled and has a short, 60-degree throw.


Hinged Floorplate
The Momentum sports a hinged floorplate magazine with the release located in the trigger-guard. To release the floorplate the catch must be fully depressed, which minimizes the chance of doing so accidentally.


Crisp Trigger & Two-Position Safety
With the two-position safety on, you can still operate the bolt: safely chamber a round or remove it from the chamber at the end of your hunt. The single-stage trigger is especially crisp and adjustable from 2 to 4 lbs.


TSA Recoil Pad
The proven TSA recoil pad absorbs 50 percent of felt recoil and will not snag on your clothes as you shoulder the rifle. Also, a checkered recess at the rear of the stock will comfortably accommodate your left hand as you shoot from a bench.


Free-Floating, Cold Hammer Forged Precision Barrel
The cold-hammer-forged, chrome-molybdenum, matte-finish barrel is entirely free-floating for maximum accuracy. The end is threaded under a knurled cover, making it easy to attach a variety of muzzle accessories

6.5 Creedmoor

The 6.5mm Creedmoor is a centerfire rifle cartridge introduced by Hornady in 2007 as a modification of the .30 TC, which was based on the 300 Savage. It was designed specifically for rifle target shooting , although it is also achieving success in hunting. Bullet for bullet it achieves a slower muzzle velocity than longer cartridges such as the 6.5-284 Norma or magnums such as the 6.5mm Remington Magnum. However, due to its 2.825 inch overall length, the 6.5mm Creedmoor is capable of being chambered in short-action bolt rifles

Suggested Use

  • Predators
  • Small Game
  • Varmint
  • Deer

Performance

This is a medium power cartridge is often comparable to the .260 Remington and 6.5x47mm Lapua but is not as accurate as the Lapua case. Three hundred yard energy using 129 grain Hornady SST bullets is listed by an independent reviewer as 1641 ft. lbs. For the 140 grain bullet at 2700 feet per second initial velocity another reviewer reports an MPBR for a six inch high target of 265 yards and reports a manufacturer claim of almost 1600 ft. lbs. of retained energy at 300 yards using a 24 inch barrel. SAAMI test data confirms 6.5 mm Creedmoor (fifteen foot from muzzle) velocity of 2,940 fps for the 129 grain bullet and 2,690 for the 140 grain bullet (which compares to .300 Winchester magnum data of 2,930 fps for a 200 grain bullet and 2,665 fps for a 210 grain bullet).
