    OK- so with the berger published BC of .612 for that bullet she is still moving out about 2000 FPS and 1200 FT-LBs at 500 yds.

    To me that would make a nice deer or sheep rifle. Combine that with a light weight rifle it shouldnt be all that bad to shoot off the bench either.

    I is a fine loading. I have that particular barrel in a# 3 contour and shoots half moa as long asits allowed to cool between shots after the first 2 or three. In other words there is some wander in that light barrel as it heats. I have a custo turret on it and I shoots exactly how it's set up to do. I can not use it as a competition barrel but it is a fine hunting prone rig. Hope this helps some..

    Very interesting thread. I too like the 6.5Creed .. I still don't have one but hope to rectify that by Christmas. I did start getting set up to reload it tho. Now all I need is the rifle.

    Hey folks, Browning long range rifles in 6.5C are now available in select dealers who ordered them at the Shot Show. I just got one from Buds (on line) and will give a report soon. These were a limited run.

    Finally I am going to try a Vortex scope. The report will delayed a while due to a shoulder injury.
