How many here have walked this round out to 1000 and played around at that distance for a while now? Just taking notes.

fireman runs one right now. It is more than capable by far.

Been to 1430 yards with it.1k is an every day thing for a 6.5 Creedmoor and .260 Rem

Of late the best target shots I've made with the 6.5 Creedmoor is my 7" square plate at 700 yards. Judd was watching it. He say "Dude! That's bada$$!" Chad was helping me spot another day. I managed it again, and in Chad's special way he say "that a baby, get some!" grin

It's consistent, and the recoil is very mild. It may very well be my most favorite short action cartridge I've ever owned.

Exactly what I wanted to hear. I'm thinking it's gonna be one of two choices. Buy a Savage LRH or ruin a completely good 700 in 270 to make a Remage with a sendero stock and heavy barrel. I was going to go with the 6.5X284 but the price of all the ammo components will kill my wallet. I can buy factory CM rounds for a while till I build up brass supply. Plus I just wanted to know it was plenty capable, not that I am yet. Lol

1k is a walk in the park with a creed. No need to walk it out. I just dial 22.7 MOA in the scope and let her fly. Boom..... Ping

Either way the wind read is much more difficult than the elevation.

6.5 Creedmoor built on savage action here as well. Im not near as good as most of these guys on here and got a 2nd round hit at 1000 yds with a good caller after I first got the gun built. Thats with a shorter barrel than most are shooting as well. Its a great round.

Without a doubt! That's where an education and a whole lot of practice come in.

BullFrog take a look at this one. I've shot one in 22-250 and I've got one in 243. They just flat out shoot and will do so with just about anything you feed it. I'm working on a 105 grain Amax load in mine to take Fireman's class with. Got a PST FFP MRAD headed my way to sit on top.

Fireman I am in the process of getting rid of my MOA scopes and converting over to mils. Just picked up a premier 5-25x56 gen2xr. It will ride my 6 creedmoor I am planning on running a few matches with.

700 here.

1000 is to much of a hike up the mountain

Why does Tikka not make a T3 in 6.5 Creedmoor? Or do they and I'm just missing it?
