    6.5 Creedmoor

    Anybody here shot or own a 6.5 Creedmoor rifle. Does anybody load for it? If so, what are you thoughts on this cartridge. How does it compare to other 6.5 cartridges?

    Own one and shoot it in sniper competitions. Love it! I haven't owned any other 6.5s but can't imagine any other short action 6.5s will do any better from what i have read and talking to others. I shoot factory 140 AMAX loads in comps and win with them. Very accurate match ammo.

    I have loaded for it also and find it easy to get it to shoot well and have gotten the 140 AMAX to 2870fps without a problem.

    All in all I couldn't be happier with my 6.5 Creedmoor.

    Yes, in that it shoots flatter and is better in the wind.

    I read about one of your competitions with said round in a magazine a while back. Seemed interesting. I saw Rob painted on one of your magazines, thought I had heard something about Team Blaster and started making connections. I was like 'Hey, I know of this guy, kinda".

    Yep, that was the article. The rifles looked really nice. Correct me if I'm wrong, but yall were getting anywhere from half inch to 3/4 groups with hornady factory ammo?

    Thanks. It's a good shooter too. Closer to half inch on the groups and stays tight at distance. Here's a couple of 100 yard groups when I was checking a new lot of ammo. The old lot is on the left and is a 5 shot group and the new lot is on the right and is a 10 shot group. .1 mil left wind and it was centered up.
