Did you blow the case out removing some taper and give it a 30 degree shoulder?

Never understood the obsession some people have about what other people shoot. It's actually kind of bizarre. I don't have one but I've shot one with good results. Wouldn't say it's any better or worse than other medium caliber guns I've tried. Just buy and shoot whatever you want and don't give a crap about the nosey nannies. To me, with the current market out there, I would be more concerned about premium ammo availability and price than anything else. Some of the "popular" picks either have nothing available or it's like 2 bucks a round.

First things first. Who gives a ffuck what others think ?
Speaking of first things, the first sentence in my thread was a serious question. The second sentence was an attempt at humor.

If this is for me, no, we were all about easy and not spending so much money. Just shorten up size dies.

I shoot a 6.5 and 6 creed just to piss off old, fat, couch riding boomers

Oh and because its twisted correctly, has the desired dimensions to shoot heavy for caliber bullets, and there is great factory ammunition available. 243 and 260 done properly...

Or how close they identify with an item and become self invested.

Like a chainsaw thread.
"Gotta buy the color I have. Or its junk"

Meanwhile, there are at least 3 manufacturers of top quality saws.
Sold under even more names.

With several other brands providing good service to less demanding users.

One of the most interesting things about 6.5 Creedmoor critics (other than most never having fired one) is the apparent inability to spell Creedmoor correctly.

Great deer, antelope, and small pig cartridge, but only a minimal elk cartridge. If your wife or kid can only handle a 6.5 Creedmoor, train them up and hope for the best. Its very doable.

However, its minimal. It's only what works when everything is right. Not running shots, not big solid shoulder shots, not running away shots and DEFINITELY not 500-600 yard shots. I don't care what others have done with the cartridge, or whats on video, I'm talking about when things don't go right.

I hunt elk with a 7RM and consider it to be no bigger than what elk hunting requires.

In summary, the 6.5 Creedmoor is great for deer and antelope but its been way oversold and real rifle guys are sick of the hype.. if you show up in my elk camp with one and aren't a little kid, a woman, or disabled, you can pack your igrorant ass back to town with your wee rifle and maybe make a few stock trades, call the signifant other and discuss the chances of Gavin in 2024.

Well thought out post.

Only women and kids can shoot well enough to smash bulls at 550yds with a 6.5CM.

As Eileen once commented to a well-known gun writer for a major magazine, "Why do men need larger cartridges than women use to kill big game?"

He didn't answer, even though he obviously thought about it.....

Its funny, he was shooting a match at Camp Butner at the same time we were just starting to use our 6.5-08 short.

We had piles of .308 brass to play with so why not use it. Made a bunch of brass with a dillon power trimmer.

I’m sorry, can you repeat -

I have a 6.5 Creedmoor, two 6.5 PRC’s, and a 6.5 x 47 Lap.

I also have a 300 Rum.

How’s my marksmanship?

Inferiority complex, nah...I just laugh when a pussy like you complains about a cartridge that makes you flinch, so you assume it must scare others.

Keep going, Rook. You’re killing it.

Well if you don't have an Inferiority complex, my post wasn't addressing you.

However your defensiveness is telling.....................

P.s. if you need cardboard I could send you some...I appreciate your cherry picked "groups" too lol.
