Re: My new 6.5 Creedmoor

Thanks for the post. I've been considering that setup for a while. What magazine system are you running on that? From the Savage product literature they say it has a 4 round capacity. Are you running any other mods? Thanks again for the vid. Nicely done on the competition with so little time.

Re: My new 6.5 Creedmoor

how about the stock; is that aftermarket? I have a LRP in 6.5 CM and it doesn't have a stock like that (doesn't have a pistol grip and has more of a straight combed stock).

Re: My new 6.5 Creedmoor

Those good bullets and long bbl with help you out a lot at a mile. I shoot mine out to 1300is pretty often and have shot about a mile a time or two. With my 20"bbl I have to shoot 140s to get any type of success. I've shot my 28" 260 with 142 smks a mile several times with decent results. A week or two I shot the 20" 1330 yards with awesome results and was super surprised as I was shooting 120 amax. Dialed 19 mils and she grouped em right in top of the others. The amax seems to transition the transonic/subsonic range very well. I plan on trying to do some more shooting this weekend at 1300-1400 range and see how it does.

Bottom line is the creedmore has really impressed me. It efficient and accurate.

Let me know how you do at a mile. Can you do another video.

From what I read, the LRP comes in an HS Precision stock from the factory.

very nice. I did a quick google search and it looks like Savage changed the stock configuration earlier this year. Mine is the old style; I like yours better.
I'm very impressed with my LRP; sounds like yours is a shooter as well. Enjoy.
