So do u guys turn down the 100 yard shots? ?
I think the moderate velocity 6.5 are the most useful.
However. Since I live and hunt in brown / grizzly bear country .the over bore 6.5 aren't as useful for me as you guys in the lower 48 .
I think a first shot kill at 600 yards on a beautiful furred Cross fox and not blowing a huge hole would be an awesome use of my 6.5Creed.
Then filling the freezer with a caribou shot at the same range. With the same rifle make the 6.5 s unique. And superior to any other cailber.
Yes the overbores would do the same as at that range the bullet has slowed sufficiently . But that same fox at 100' would just be a red misty puff of fur.
