Re: 6.5 Creedmore-Rifle Elk Season

Going to try to "kick it up a notch" this year. A friend of mine is going to build me a 6.5 SAUM! Going to be a barrel burner, but should be a laser beam at the distances I plan on shooting for LR hunting rig!

Going to look into running some of the Berger 140 grain match grade Hunting VLD's and be launching them around 3300 FPS. Should be a fun project and if it works out I will keep a few barrels around, if not, I will rechamber for 7 SAUM after burning through the first barrel!
