    In the mid 70's we were killing rocks with 300 mags. as well as 7mm Rem Mags. at extremely long ranges. Now my wife of 26 yrs. purchased for me a 6.5 Creedmore model 11 LR hunter becaused i just mention it in passing. This is after I built for myself a 6.5 grendel in hopes of Pennsylvania legalizing semi auto rifles for hunting here, has not yet happened. Jeanne wanted me to try something different, my gunsmith has been a supporter of the 6.5's forever a very wise man. As winter breaks I will be returning to the longrange rock fields of many years as well as hunting varmits here in PA. Any help with loading this new rifle would be greatfully appreciated I call the Creedmore my old mans rifle.

    I have been eye-balling the Creedmore for months, you'll have to tell us how it shoots!

    I was so taken by the way it shoots My old trusted friend 300 Win custom stayed in the safe for the first time in over 40 years. I believe right now it is the most accurate rifle I own and it is box stock less the ugly knobs on the cheek piece. 1/2 to 3/8 are the norm at 100 yards
