Re: Ruger 6.5 Creedmoor Review

The Creedmoor is indeed a great round but so is the .260 and several people make good brass for it now. Also the parent brass will be around for a long time. Remember the Creedmoor cases and ammunition are made by just one company. I would feel a lot more confident in the round if some other ammunition makers would pick it up. I have heard Hornady would not let that happen. I still have one but I have a .260 also, but both are bolt actions.

I'm betting the cm stands for CREEDMOOR. But I could be wrong.

Re: Ruger 6.5 Creedmoor Review

I think he was referring to some form of 6.5 Creedmoor chambered rifle. Ruger, Savage, Browning, Remington, Custom build. Ect. . And each maker has more than a couple variations.
I'm hoping Ruger comes out with it in the Ultra Light, Scout and All American.
