Reason's To Hate The 6.5 Creedmoor!!

Thought this would stir-up some "good conversation" during the slow times here:

Haha !!! No...

Virtually identical to the .260 Remington except with a WAY cooler name. I'll pass.

I handload for a 6.5x55 Swede shooting from a modern action Savage with a Shilen match barrel. It's just as, if not more accurate than an old friend of mine's 6.5 Creedmore. We use the same powder, powder charge, and bullet. Velocity and accuracy are the same. But the 6.5x55 cartridge is well over 100 years old.

I'll play.
Because real hunting cartridges start with a 3 or 4 and do not have "mm" after them in their name.


Flame on !!!
How much longer till the season??

I'm in the "I don't love it or don't hate it". If I found a rifle I absolutely loved in 6.5 Creedmoor, I'd buy it. I would probably take a 7mm-08 over it for a dedicated hunting rifle if I had the choice.

Nothing wrong with it but it just doesn't excite me.

For years I really wanted a full stocked deer rifle in the 6.5. If the Creedmoor would of been available back when I was in the market.....not sure if I woulda ended up with a 6.5X55 Swede or not?? See no reason to change as my CZ 550FS is by far the best hunting rifle I ever carried in the PA deer woods in my 50 plus years hunting... plus purdy to look at to boot!!

Loggy I think you're probably like me. You probably spend an inordinate amount of time admiring your rifle while sitting on deer stand. That's what I do.
