    Default 6.5 Creedmoor?

    Been looking at the ballistics on this fairly new cartridge and like what I am seeing. Savage makes a stainless Ultra Lite rifle and so does Kimber in their Adirondack. I am shooting a Tika T3 Ultra Lite fluted right now in 308 Win. Anyone here have a chance to own, shoot this cartridge yet?

    Been running it for 5 years now. It out runs the .308 in every way and with hornadys new bullet offerings it really goes good. Farthest i have killed a deer is just short of 600 and that was with the 140 amax.

    Love the 6.5CM! Spanks 308 all day. Aside from pure Ft/Lbs energy also outperforms 300WM

    How does it 'outperform the 300wm'?

    Might also be fun to discuss how much better this is than a .260 Remington....

    I love my .260 Remington. Took an elk at 387 yards or so, no problems. It's also a great antelope and deer gun!
    120 speer hot cor and 125 partitions are the business!
