    I started shooting a 6.5 creedmoor some 10 years ago. Most of all my shooting buddies were shooting 308win. 10 years ago I made the remark, "6.5 creedmoor will replace the 308 among match shooters and hunters." Of course I was laughed at.

    As I scan this thread, I see 3 post for 308win and many many post for 6.5 creedmoor.

    I ask, has the 6.5 creed overcome the 308 in popularity?

    It's look'in to me like just about anything including a stout rock is good for deer.

    I like Rem700's.

    I like to alternate between a few I have: so far I've taken the most deer with an 80's vintage 30-06 mountain rifle that I used exclusively until about 10 years ago, now I'm starting to catch up with a 270 SS BDL. I've also shot a few with various Win70's and a Sako.

    I've killed deer with many different calibers and rifles but this year I'm going backwards and using a Marlin GG 45-70 just because I can. But really my all time favorite has been a Browning A Bolt in 30-06.

    Remington 700 with Shilen barrel in 25-06 Ackley Imp. 100 grain Hornady or Sierra, shoots flat and hammers deer size game.
