Re: 6.5 creedmoor

I've got one (Sav 12 LRP) with a big heavy barrel - not exactly a 'carry' gun but it should be able to reach out and touch 'em as far as I am comfortable on a small moving target ;)

As far as fur-friendly... probably depends on the bullet. 95 VMax, probaby not so much ;) S123MK, possibly.

Re: 6.5 creedmoor

What's the difference between a 6mm Creedmoor and a 243 AI?

Re: 6.5 creedmoor

6 CM :

no fire forming

works better in AR15 platform

longer barrel life

shorter case works better in SA with longer bullets than 243AI
