I owned a 6.5 Creedmoor for a couple of years. Killed a couple of whitetail does with it. It was a very accurate gun, but to my deep regret I let it go down the road in order to buy something I thought I wanted more. I have since traded off that “Something”. Oh the mistakes we make.


If we live long enough, we all have regrets. But the ones that nag at us the most are the ones in which we know we had a choice.

The short action fieldcrafts are where it's at with the 3" magbox. The LA doesn't offer much magbox. Anything in a SA is worth owning. It's amazing how many companies still can't get mag box and twist right. It's like the 29 years I spent trying to tell scope companies not to do mildot reticle with moa turrets. The shooting industry like most industries unfortunately is controlled by politicians not leaders who don't actually shoot.

It's got some pretty sweet bucks under its belt!

I bet if you shoot one with it, it doubles in size before it hits the ground!

Not being married to any particular political party sure makes it a lot easier to look at the world more objectively...

I've had a 6.5cm, 308, 7-08, 270 and 30-06...all went down the road to someone that wanted them more than me. The only one I kept is my Fieldcraft Swede...love that dang rifle.

I had two Fieldcrafts. Both mine (6.5 CM & 270 Win) had the no.2 24" contour barrel. There are things to like, and things to dislike. For me, more to dislike. I found the stock clunky. I don't like the scope mount options (too high). I dislike the thick stock. I really dislike the big gap that allows all kinds of water, snow, and debris down into the magazine.

Brad, wow telling photo of a major flaw. Thanks for sharing.


Your Every Liberal vote promotes Socialism and is an attack on the Second Amendment. Period. You will suffer the consequences.

Do not "forget",that Imitation is the MOST Sincere form of Flattery and some folks actually go Outdoors in REAL weather,though you only get to read about it and ogle The Splendid Pixels from your Couchbound Kchunt. Hint.

Pardon my simply shooting it all and then some. Hint.
