    This may be dumb to some but interesting to the 6.5 Creed crowd.

    That’s interesting, I’d still like to see the 28 inch barrel speed if you can find it. It seems like my personal experience with the encore is a fair amount faster than a 24 or 26 inch barrel

    I found a little . Had to dig through targets...
    Found the TC Encore 28 in. Barrel shot the Hornady 143 ELDX 2842 Fps. That's 196 FPS faster than the The Tikka 24.5 in. barrel.
    143 ELDX with 45.0 grs. Superformance was 3011 fps. 178fps. Faster.
    The loads were with Starline not Hornady like I said.
    For another load that was accurate and fast as Superformance was 43.0 grs. Hodgdon Hybrid 100. With 143 ELDX I averaged 2835 fps. Was almost as accurate also.
    Found another. Last one . Was 182 Fps faster with Sig 140 match ammo.

    I'm going to call Lyman tomorrow. I'm glad I just remembered. About a month ago my Lyman digital caliper flaked out. Wouldn't come on. Then sometimes it would and then freak out. I've had it for probably 20 yrs. ? I bought a much nicer one already. Maybe they will replace it ?
