    Actual difference between 6.5 creedmoor and 6.5x55 with RELOADS??

    Both the sweed and the creed are excellent as they are without overloading them. my experience after years of hunting and shooting many small and large game animals is get a good quality gun that fits you and your not afraid of, use good quality bullets. practice shooting so you can hit a...

    Need some guidance..

    I have had the good luck to shoot many bull elk as well as a few cows. some were very close while others were up to 400 yards. When hit well they all fell and stayed down. For the longer range shots I used a 7mm rem, mag with 162 gr Nosler bullets. The rest were shot with 270 win. 338 win mag...

I have a really hard time...

    Look at ballistics before you buy a elk gun. Example my x bolt 280 with 160 gr bullets will almost match my 7mm rem mag loads with much less powder and recoil, the difference in speed has little or no effect on the kill. I have dropped elk with everything from 375 H&H to 270 win. I saw that...
