Re: Caliber Suggestions...have at it

Other than throat erosion the 6.5 Creedmoor is a great round.

Be prepared to swap your barrel after every couple thousand rounds.

I will have to do the same with my 7mmSTW, but I already knew what I was getting into when I bought it. I still got about 1,250 rounds to go before it gets replaced.

I think I left out a few words.....Accurately, efficiently, and every time. That's better.

Ohh it will do it everytime, it is a factory ammo 1moa gun and a 1/4-1/2 moa with my handloads, but I forgot I did bed it.

I know, I was just being a smartass. The OP kinda got me fired up when he made false accusations.
