Has anybody spotted any 6.5 Creedmoor on the shelves at Walmart?

Not here. I've seen this caliber at Academy, but I don't think there is one within 200 miles of Chicago.

Nope, although i did see some 300blk the other day. So it probably wont be too terribly long before 6.5cm gets there.

Thanks for looking.
I figure when I see it at Walmart the 6.5 has gone mainstream.

Nope...but I was shocked to find it at my local Dicks sporting goods a few months ago. My local bass pro shops also has it- but I buy most of my ammo online.

6.5 Creedmoor already is mainstream, regardless of whether or not Walmart stocks the ammo. IMO the majority of 6.5 CM shooters are precision shooters -- a market that Walmart doesn't really cater to.

My local walmart carries a lot of "match" rounds of various calibers, and all they do is sit there. I can't see Walmart getting too into 6.5cm unless the military adopts it and it becomes a "surplus" type round, or Federal starts making loads for it. of course, Federal makes 5.7 rounds, but walmart's not getting that in either.
