Re: Ruger drops 6.5 Creedmoor

March 20,2012 I just got off the phone with the Ruger folks at the plant. As of now there are no plans to drop the Creedmoor. It is in their 2012 catalog.

    October 12, 2013 - just looked at Ruger website, there are 4 models of the 77 bolt action available in 6.5 Creedmoor. Nothing in the No. 1 for 2013.

    The thing is that the Creed is an awesome round. . Not saying the other 6.5 s aren't great also. I hope the Creed will be aroundforever and since there are several other companies are making rifles in that cart. I imagine it won't just disappear. .

    I guess 300 Savage afficinados were saying the same thing about the 308 when it first came out. Ect.ect.ect.

    Having written about several 6.5 Creedmoors, I agree it is a great caliber but to me so is the .260 and it is not a proprietary round. If another ammunition company comes out with the Creedmoor, then I would think it was here to stay. Ruger did come out this year with the Ruger #1V in 6.5-284. Expect an article on this rifle here soon. Len has the article. Like the Creedmoor #1V, it is a tack driver. I plan on hunting with it this deer season. When asked how long it would be available, I was told by Ruger that it all depends on sales. So if you want one in 6.5-284 Ruger#1V you better buy the first one you see. Ask your dealer to stock them will work also.

    I would be more than happy if my dealer would just carry the stainless 6.5 Creed in the m77 Target, Predator and 26" barrel Hawkeye.

    I know that GA Precision offers a fine looking hunting rifle in the 6.5 Creedmore.

    Re: Ruger drops 6.5 Creedmoor

    Well it's 2015 and I just purchased the Ruger American Preditor 6.5 Creedmoor and topping it off with a Quigley-Ford 520. Hopefully the round will be around for a while. When I like a gun I normally keep it for a few years, like forever. Hopefully this will be a good whitetail round when I want to give the 20 year old M77 Stainless 7mm Mag a rest.
