    Hi to all, Happy 4th to you. Thanks to all of our military folks for all that they have sacraficed! Just about ready to take the new Savage in 6.5 lrh to the range. Have a couple of boxes of Hornady match in 140 to try. Gun will be used for hunting at reasonable ranges, just wondering what factory ammo would be the best performance wise in a hunting situation. Have heard conflicting reviews on the a-max. Have no experience with any bullets under 150 grains out of an 06. Thank you in advance.

    I believe the only choice (at this time) in factory rounds is Hornady. having said that, I'm not overly fond of Hornady brass.

    There's an outfit by the name of Copper Creek that loads 6.5Creedmoor. Nosler is supposed to be coming out with 6.5 CM later this year. I heard they are waiting on a brass order.
