For the shooting guys

Post  Curt on August 1st 2015, 2:56 pm

Just ordered a new Ruger Precision in 6.5 Creedmoor. We'll have to see if I can kill a hog at 1500 yards.

http://www.bergerbullets.com/ballistics/php/bb.php Looks like it will hit about like a hot 9mm at the muzzle, if it hits.

.5 MOA at 1,000. It if hits will depend on me and my spotter.

I guess if the pigs hang around. I have only shot to 1,000yds and it's a long ways. The 6.5x284 guys did good, around 4-6"'s with a little wind.

The challenge is what it's all about. I wouldn't ever try to hunt anything exotic that far out. We really don't care if we injure a hog. Coyotes gotta eat too.

It's possible. I'm collecting them in case they try to build a Mosque in our county, oh, and eating the bacon and hams.

The Hornady cartridge is almost as good as a hand load and available making the 6.5 Creedmoor a good choice for me. I'll keep the brass and maybe someday I'll buy some dies for it. I like the .260 Remington, but I've never seen a box on a shelf for sale. I really thought about the .308 since I already have several thousand rounds, but the more I read about the 6.5 the more I thought I would like it for a long range round. Looks like I'll be adding shelves to my ammo vault.

If you want factory match rounds in 6.5 the Creedmoor and Laupa are about it. The AMax's are good for long range hunting, not so much for up close though. The 6.5mm does have an advantage over the .308 way out there also. With a good muzzle break you can spot your shots easier, too.

Nice gun!  It will be interesting to see how those rifles perform.  I recently added a 6.5 to the stable.  The ballistic coefficients available are great.  I'm currently shooting the 139gr lapua scenar out of my 260rem.  Keep us posted on what type of groups she can hold!

Curt you still need a scope to see that far, even on my little .17 hmr I use a 6x24x50mm so I can see a prairie dog blink his eye @ 200 yards.... the Article talks about the Tubbs2000 funny David lived 50 miles from me, very nice guy...
Supervel the AMAX is a good hunting bullet I use to use them, they act like a VMAX on impact unless they changed them they are still a polimer tipped bullet... and if you reload I would highly recommend Moly coating the bullets

I use the AMaxs to and like them also. They have thin jackets and expand better at lower velocity's, which makes them good for long range hunting. On midsize game up close they may blowup like a varmint bullet is what I was talking about Coug.

I have a new IOR Valdada 40mm tube in a 4x28 that is about 3 times as much as the gun. It is unbelievable how good the glass is. Although I would never use the gun for anything close, this scope will work less than 100yds.

My main purpose for this gun will be for hitting steels. Never thought my budget would higher for glass than the firearm.

I saw that the other day when you posted it. LOL Most people don't understand how much damage they cause to fields and vegetation.

http://www.knesekguns.com/commercial/AI-AX65-6-5-Creedmoor-24-SAS-Brake Here you go Curt, this will help match the optic's cost disparity.

I like that, but I don't know that it is worth 7 times what the Ruger is.
