Re: 6.5 creedmor

Another +1 for the lrp, I skim bedded mine but that's about it. Even then the only reason I did that was for the experience of doing it myself. I'm getting .5 moa right now and 2880 fps with 140 amax and could go a bit hotter yet. Still playing with the bergers.

Try a leupold vx3 4.5-14x40 or x50 with the 30mm tube mounted with talley's. That is what I'm mounting to my 6.5-06 when it gets back from cerakote

Go with h 4831sc for the 140's around 45.5 to 46.5 gr for the 260

Re: 6.5 creedmor

What is your budget for scope? Some of the NIKON and viper vortex get great reviews and you can get them much cheaper than a leupold that would offer the same features. I have a vxIII 6.5-20 with Target knobs on mine but if I were to do it over I would do a vv pst or a sightron sIII in a 4-16x though I do like having higher magnification.

What results are to be expected with this charge range?

What barrel length?
