    I have a new seekins Havak, I broke the barrel in with 40 rounds, and it shot in the .2's. with factory Hornady. I sent the stock out to the guy that does GA precision and had him do a camo finish on it, and I had a jewell trigger installed. Gun is new, I have the box and all the paperwork if interested. I will cut it loose for 2250.00 shipped. I have over 2500.00 into it. Scope not included..

    - 24" Rock Creek Barrel 1-8"
    - McMillan Game scout
    - Seekins action
    - Seekins Bottom metal det. mag

    Thanks for replies. Love the Seekins, but it's a bit out of my price range.

    Thanks

    Not trying to talk you out of a 6.5CM, but you might consider a Savage model 16 in 260 Rem. I bought a new one a couple years back for $500. It is exactly the same external dimensions. as the CM. 22" bbl, 1/8 twist. Holds about 1.5 grs more powder than the CM. Mine shoots 3 shot groups of Barnes 120gr TSX almost into one hole. Just some thing to think about especially if your on a budget.

    What's nice about the creedmoor is that you can do that with factory off the shelf 143 eld's.

    My gun will shoot .1-.2" (same hole) Hornady PH 143gr. ELD.

    Plus tons of ammo around.

    I already have a couple of creeds, so I'm not wanting to jump calibers I agree that the 260 is similar, just already decided on the creed. Thanks
