You can't be called a fan boy until you pay full price for one!

L:DL! You got me there ... but I am a fan boy of all cartridges. I was actually looking into acquiring either the Tikka T3 CTR, Bergara B-14, and the new Savage 110 tactical, all in 6.5 CM to play with it. Now, I don't have to, at least for the moment. My Carl Gustaf 6.5x55 will take a back seat (for a well-deserved break) as truck gun as soon as I have the time to put it all together and develop some loads.

Let me know how you like it...I'm playing with a short action 700 with a remage 6.5x47 barrel, and a 700 long action is waiting on a 6.5-284 remage barrel to show up in the next couple of weeks. Everyone and their mother in law seem to be raving about the creedmoor though, so it has me curious...and I have a Bartlein 6.5 marksman contour 5r blank just sitting around waiting for one of my remage barrels to lose a contest.

Will do, cheers!

I prefer a little more caliber for my truck shooting, but once it gets to where you need to put one down it's all satisfying.
Congratulations! An occasional win does wonders for the psyche!

Aye Sir, I am considering a 18-20" .375 Ruger for that purpose. :D

Awesome that's getting your money worth
That’s what I’m talking about!
A 6.5 Creedmore for $20...worth every penny!:eek::D

Just kidding of course. I was helping a buddy get his new 6.5 Creed Ruger/Vortex lined out last week. A light recoiling factory rifle shooting factory ammo the is .75 moa out to 400 so far, what’s not to like?
