If you're only getting 23-2400fps you are in the Grendel class of cartridges. A 6.8 SPC was designed for 16" barrels and would give similar performance as a 16" Creed. Especially in the 120gr bullet area. A lot less in recoil, flash, noise, and powder consumption. To me it's silly to handicap a good cartridge with a short barrel. May as well shoot a smaller cartridge. I'm not judging at all. Ive got plenty of guns that don't really make sense. My Contenders come to mind.What would a Grendel do better with a shorter barrel than a creedmoor?
Nightforce has great tracking capabilities, they are rugged, a bunch of elevation, holds zero forever, and reticles are designed for long range shooting. So if you are looking to shoot long distances constantly, then you need a scope that can take the abuse. -- gilmillan1
Nightforce is such a solid combo of reticle, available elevation, glass that is good enough to shoot at the longest range you can dial. Nightforce has bullet proof construction that can handle the incidental horse rolling or some other rodeo action. -- bigngreen
The total package. Nightforce is the best I have used as far as turret feel and solid detents. I have never had one that didn't track right on and always return to zero. Nightforce NXS is the best value for everything I need. -- Broz
