Nothing wrong with the 6.5 CM at all, if I remember right it's basically a 6.5XC, should give you longer barrel life than my 6xc with a great choice in bullets with more than acceptable BC numbers. Good luck with it and have fun, by the way, I did speak to a friend if mine at badger ordnance today while ordering an action for my lapua build and they are all sold out of the short actions so as soon as you can get an order in I would jump on it.

Re: ultimate long range coyote, medium range white tail, long range comp rig finished

Well I finally got around to making some reloads last night for it and I decided to go out in the clay pit behind my house this afternoon just to check my bore sight job at 200 yards, the first thing I took a shot at was a little 2"x2" dirt formation that happens when it rains here, basically what it is is a rock sitting on top of hard red clay and when it rains the rock protects the dirt underneath it and makes a dirt pillar with a rock sitting on it, kinda neat looking actually. Anyway, I stuck one round in the mag to see just how well it would feed, no problems there! I got settled in and adjusted the rear bag and got the formation dead nuts in the center of the crosshairs, let one round fly and no more dirt/rock formation... Naturally I though it may have been a fluke and looked around for a bit and found a white piece if tile that was the same size and distance put the crosshairs on it and let one fly, turned the piece of tile into what looked like talc powder, I was quite surprised to say the least, I found an empty Tylenol bottle (small one) and sat it where the piece of tile was and took a shot at it and no more bottle, I've never had a rifle I've bore sighted that didn't need the slightest bit of adjustment that I could tell, I guess when you get really picky and take your time it pays off because I was seriously anal when I was bore sighting it. Recoil is about like a sporter weight 17hmr to say I'm pleased thus far is an understatement and I can't wait to go do my ladder test at the range!
