Some are made in China, some in Philippines and others in Japan.

Re: Ruger 6.5 Creedmoor Review

Just finished reading your review of the Ruger 6.5 creedmoor in the review you talked about bullet weights of 120gr and above. I have a ruger in the target model 6.5 creedmoor have a burris 6x24x50 on it.I plan to use it for groundhogs in pa.I just started reloading for myself and was thinking about useing the 95gr v-max bullets.Anyone have any thoughts and or suggestion on the bullets size.

The barrel twist is not quite slow enough to get the best accuracy out of a 95gr bullet. If you want to try them, push them as fast as you can. This often works with light bullets in fast twist barrels. Let me know how it goes.

Re: Ruger 6.5 Creedmoor Review

I got my first 6.5 Creedmoor a couple weeks ago. I really like it. ! So far it is seeming to be a half inch rifle. Mine is the Hawkeye with the 26" barrel. I wanted the VT model with the 28" barrel but my dealer couldn't find one. I actually get so excited to shoot it that its hard to calm down and shoot good. I really like it! Not too big, not too small not too fast or too slow. Just right. .
Not saying its better than the 260, 6.5x55 or 6.5x 47 . But I don't think its inferior either.
Mainly it's in a Ruger and so I like and trust it.

Re: Ruger 6.5 Creedmoor Review

Your Ruger should shoot well. I own many 6.5 caliber rifles and each one is different but overall there is not too much difference between cartridges. The difference usually is in the rifles they are chambered. In fact I have a new Browning A bolt LRH 6.5C ready to be sighted in today if the Texas winds calm down.
