    Watched some friends video of them trap dooring mule deer at long range with the 6mm Creed and a Berger 115, man it's a lethal combination!!

    Can't vote, either, but I can skirt the edge. I have a .243 with an 8.5 twist, a .260 with an 8", a 7-08 with a 9.25" and a .308 with an 8. Between them I don't think I'll be running up against anything that can't be handled at any sane range. OOPS, almost forgot the .22-250 with the 1 in 8" also.

    Some of the ' Lite Caliber/Varminter Class '
    Target Competitions that are going on here are for ' Centerfire only ' with a Bullet restriction of no larger than .257" in Diameter the .243" 6mm Creed is an extremely effective round for this
    ' Class C ' Competition

    For the ' Class B ' Target Competitions ' that allow from a .243" up to anything under a .30 Caliber Bullet, the 6mm Creed. is still able to hold it's own.

    But in the ' Class A ' Target Competitions that only allow .30 Caliber Bullets , it's time to bring out the the bigger guns

    This is the Savage 110 Desert Tactical Factory Rifle in a 6mm Creed. that I chose to try out and I would highly recommend it to anyone that is looking for a 6mm Creed. to try out before investing a lot $$$ into it.

    Well it's just become time for all other 6.5's to take a back seat... Weatherby just launched their new 6.5 RPM TODAY....( Of course they did...5 months late for me!)

    Let us not forget the 6mm PPC when you are talking about really good 6mm cartridges.
    It is only held back by the rifling twist and a bit less powder capacity.
    The 6mm PPC was at one time the most accurate caliber going.

    The PPC still is one of, if not the most accurate short range cartridge there is. It’s not a long range round though, it’s best at 100, 200, and 300 yards. It dominates short range bench rest. If you really wanted to, you could build one with an 8 twist, but that’s where the 6BRA and Dasher come in.

    I can't vote either since I sold my 6mm Remington a loooooong time ago...

    Fun cartridge fore sure,,, but my Two mid size 30 calibers and my new 6.5 Wildcat will hold in there with the best of them """if""" I can get a clean break from the trigger... Ha...

    Have you (or anyone) tried any varmint bullets in the 6 CM 1:8 twist, 55-58 grainish? Just wondering how the higher twist works with the smaller bullets?

    I use the light bullets in a 8 twist 6 Dasher. Devastating on gophers. 87 v-max lightest I tried in 6 creed. Over 3300 fps they were not making it to the target !!

    I had some really good results with the 87gr. V-MAX Bullets using a variety of powders and also the
    Factory 87gr. V-MAX Ammo.

    In my little world west side of Houston Texas; from what I see on the ground at the range...the 6mm Creedmoor has a lot of ground to make up. I bet I see 50 cases in 6.5 CM to one 6mm CM.

    I don't recall finding any the last two trips.
