Whats the cartridge you LOVE to HATE?

What's not to love about the bullet being longer than the case? 😲 Can't wait to get enough brass to start running my Makers.
That thing is just sexy isn't it? I have some Makers piled up and I bought some brass from a guy in San Antonio. It's nice looking brass and it fits a Sheridan gauge. Not bad for a cartridge isn't SAMMI approved yet :)

I want my can... waaah...
 
Sorry guys... decision got made in a moment of weakness. Redding deluxe die set for 257 Rob AI 40 degree was on sale for $60 off regular price. AND... I looked at pictures of loaded 257 AI. And I snapped... die set bought and I don't have time to do it, but gun will get dropped off maybe tomorrow at the gun smith.

In the end, with a 22" barrel but full length standard magazine, it will give 100 fps faster (at best. At worst 75 fps) then the 257 +P ammo but it's not by far my worst pain in the butt cartridge. I have a 17-KHornet that I need to get dies for and start reloading.

The title you get when you are the best 6.5Creedmore shooter at the range
 
I SKIPPED OVER, the .308,.. a long Time, ago !
First with, the LAZER like, .270 WSM / .270 Wby's,.. spewing 140's at, 3,200 FPS !
NOW HAVE,. the AWESOME, 6.5 Creedmoor, belching 143's at a mere, 2,735 FPS !
LOTS of Ammo available and My, personal, End of World,.. "Pick" for, LR accuracy, WITHOUT,.. the Recoil !
Give me, a few Minutes to put on my Flame Retardant Suit,.. LOL !
The .308 is, OK, IF that's ALL you "Have" ( just,.. Make Do ! ) and "Suck Up" the extra, Recoil

TRUE, it sure AIN'T,.. the 1300 Yard, "Elk Slayer" that, it was touted to Be,.. a Decade ago !
PS ; I was a 6.5 Creed, "Hater" once,.. Myself !
Bought One to replace, a .243 Win. L-H, Tikka that, My grandson "abscounded with", a couple of years ago.
YUP,. I'm NOT getting, that One back, anytime soon !
The 6.5 Creed sure beats, the old 243 Win,.. 7 ways, from Sundown, for MY uses, on Deer, Antelope, Yotes and L R Steel Fun,... IMO !
And the Barrel will last, TWICE as, Long as most, .243's !
