Creedmoor 3006 Ammo
 
Is Creedmoor still producing the 3006 match ammo for Garands? I don't see it advertised anymore. I'd like to start shooting my Garand again now that I'm able. My rifle loves the Creedmoor.

Thanks all.

Not only is it not showing up in the CMP estore, it's not listed in the Creedmoor ammo site either. As mentioned, contact them to see if their 30.06 will again be in their future..

Spoke with Creedmoor. They are not currently producing the 3006 match. They said possibly by June or July. They claimed they had to obtain components and "get their machines running again." I asked if any of this ammo would be available for sale at the D-Day match and they said they would not speculate regarding that.

So, that is the best I could do. Don't count on the Creedmoor for your 3006 at the DDay match. Hopefully we'll be surprised though.

No doubt they are having as much trouble getting components as everybody else (primers..).

No doubt about it.

Bullets are not readily available either. Expensive premium bullets can he found, at 1 dollar or more each.

Here is What Brent answered on the Q&A CMP is getting 30-06 ammo: https://www.creedmoorsports.com/prod...fle-Ammunition

A: Hey,

Thank you for your questions. This is Brent Books, the GM. Dennis moved up to Virginia and hasn't been with Creedmoor for a few years now, but he still comes down to visit every once in a while. We don't have an estimate on when any .308 ammo will be available due to the component shortage. It's likely to be in 2022 if we're able to make any. Our .30-06 ammo will be sold through the CMP and I can't speak for them as far as when they'll make it available for purchase. Please give me a call if you have any other questions. I'd be happy to help.

Thank you,

Brent

i do not understand why they quit making 30-06. the CMP and us as shooters need to get them to resume and make it in 155, 167 and 175 grain just like 308. their ammo shot great out my garands. Ron

the 30-06 brass and 167 grain bullets have never been out of stock where i shop. the 210M primers they used and powder i think was N140 or N150 has been out of stock at my local store. Creedmore caters to the target shooters and is manufacturer of ammo. they should be able to secure the material to make the ammo. the garand ammo they made sold quickly.
