I have a $175 TC Compass in 6.5 that outshoots anything else in the safe. Bought it just to checkout the hype. Already had a .260 since they were introduced back in the 90's. It's too much fun now that it's dialed in. I still take my 7 mag and 338 mag for Elk hunting but shoot the Creedmoor at the range for fun. It won't beat you up like the mags will.

That’s been my experience as well.

I bought one in a relatively cheap heavy barrel profile Rem 700. I replaced the trigger with a Timney and dropped it in a different stock. It shoots lights out and is my first/only rifle with a scope with turrets to dial. Lots of fun at the range. 6.5 CM isn’t the end all be all of anything. Just a modern cartridge designed to take advantage of modern twist rates and optimized for maximum velocity out of a short action non magnum rifle with room to adjust seating depth and 30 degree shoulders known for easy accuracy.

everybody talks about "modern" this & that when it involves the crud, ffs you can have any fkn "modern" twist barrel ya want, I've got 6 twist in 6.5mm, 7 twist in 30 cal & 8mm, and even have 7 twist in 375 cal & 8 twist in 408 cal, It's not brain surgery to run a reamer with a "modern" throat into any existing factory chamber

some guys make it seen like the frkn Cruds & PRiCk cartridges are so futuristic as to hold some sort of magical powers

Or you could just buy it off the shelf and be done with it. Not brain surgery and not magical.

If the 6.5 Swede (great cartridge with lots of great history) was built on a short action you’re still going to be limited to seating depth. If it’s on a long action you won’t be but your also open to a whole lot of other potential chamberings. I’d rather hunt with a 6.5 Swede for the history behind the cartridge or a 7x57 over a 7-08 but from a practical standpoint and in the case of the CM for non hunting purposes the CM makes more sense. Nobody uses a Swede precision shooting. A CM can be off the shelf no modifications necessary and given the correct rifle the cartridge works well as a hunting AND precision cartridge.

Added bonus for a CM over a Swede in addition to the barrel having a faster twist you don’t have to reload to get modern pressure ammo and have more choices to pick from.

I think some people resent an easy button cartridge.

Do it. One of the guys at my club bought one just for our know your limits shoots. He put a $1,000.00 scope on it too. He didn't do well in the matches. Due to "flyers" and "poor ammo". Some guys have all the excuses though.

No doubt.

I get having sentimental favorites and as a “gun guy” have some of my own. At the same time I’m not so blinded to see the added benefits and scope beyond strictly hunting purposes of new developments as they come along.

I have a Kidd 10/22 clone with an aluminum sleeved barrel. No complaints.

If we get more Biden bucks I’ll buy a Proof Research Elevation. I’ll probably buy one either way but Biden bucks would make it an easy call.

I have a Dead Air Nomad that should get the ATF thumbs up soon. Most of my deer hunting is out of box blinds and tree stands. I want a lightweight compact .308. I’ve heard some negatives about Christensen Arms. I’d rather have controlled round feed just because I like it and for the money would like to get exactly what I want. I like the Proof elevation but haven’t had the opportunity to handle one and hate to spend that much money and not like how it handles I like a more open grip in a hunting rifle. Looking at the Proof stock it’s hard to tell exactly how it would handle. That’s splitting hairs and won’t make any difference in dead deer but for the money I want it to be what I want.

I wouldn't call it a modern cartridge but improved yes. It has great genes . Add in twist rate change shoulder angle and excellent components that are readily available along with the flight characteristics of 6.5 bullets it's no surprise so many different rifles chambered for it are accurate right out of the box. Reminds me of some of the old cheap 222 Rems that used to be offered as most shot as well as more expensive ones. Like I said good genes...

Our version with very similar ballistics is 6,5x47 Lapua. It was developed for target shooting, but with heavier weight soft points bullets it can be used for small and medium game hunting.

Guess I'm just a dinosaur, my newest, latest and greatest caliber is 300 win mag. I was told a long time ago that a good rifle shoots better than a good cartridge.
