Had a great start to the week. We got a chance to spend some time in South Texas with Jada Johnson Host of Big Boy Adventures. We have been sponsoring Jada's show on Sportsman Channel and Wild TV for 2 years now. Jada has never really shot past 400 yards, and the ranch had a good range. So we took advantage of showing off some of the guns and shooting tips. We let her try out the 6.5 Creed that we are giving away at DSC as she has only been using a 7 mag and a 300win, so I thought she would appreciate the mild recoil. After getting an idea what the wind was doing at 400 yards with 2 shots. I dialed up the scope and told her to try 2 shots at 600. Needless to say you cant get much better than that. This gun had 7 shots through it and that group was shot with factory 140 grain Amax ammo. We later shot my 22 creed out to to 900 and we had a blast. And someone at DSC is going to get one heck of a rifle.

How does the 6.5 perform out of a 17" barrel?
