6.5 Creedmore

I have a 6.5creedmore in the ruger target model plan to use for groundhogs in the fram lands of pa.The 129gr.hornady is just to big so i thinking about something about 85gr.to 95gr.Anyone out in the free world have any thoughts on the matter.Any feed back would be helpful for a just starting out reloader.

Re: 6.5 Creedmore

I've shot 95 grain VMax through mine and I would have 3 shots in the same hole and 2 flyers on every single group that would open them all up to around 2 MOA. I only tried 2 different powders and then just decided to stay with the 140 A Max as my go to bullet. I probably have over 50 of them I'd sell you super cheap if you want them. PM if your interested.

Re: 6.5 Creedmore

I just shot a 5 round, 100 yard group @ .602" this evening with my creedmoor using 95 V-Max and Varget. It was my first experience with the 95's and I'm sure I can tweak the group to under .500 with a little experimentation. They shot better than my 120 smk's or A-Max's the first time out so I'm excited to try them some more.

Re: 6.5 Creedmore

Was seated very deep 2.54 COAL. I don't like to publish load data so start light and work your way up. You also might want to experiment with the seating depth once you find the load that works. Every gun shoots differently.

Okay, better question, what powder were you using?
