    Re: 6.5 Creedmoor

    Put a few rounds through it the other day... waiting on my dies

    A buddy let me use some of his rounds (still have less than 30 rounds through this barrel including break in with 120 GMX superformance)

    120gr Hornady Match (a-max) 5 shots...


    This is my buddies load with 142gr Matrix bullets 6 shots (the 5th shot went out of the group a bit so I put another one to confirm the rifle was really shooting that well)...


    I have no doubt this thing will only get better when I can get a load worked up...

    Nice!

    Got load development done at 300yds on Saturday... Found a node a full grain wide. Then on Sunday I ran the rifle out to 1060yds. Looks like I'm getting about 2825fps with the Matrix 142gr bullets.
