Getting ready to begin loading some break-in rounds for the new 6.5 Creed. I know every barrel/rifle is different, yada yada. but in the interest of saving some time.....those of you who have experimented with these new bullets already, where do the like to be in OAL? touching...off .002.....or more in your rifles?

My 6.5 Creed 140 ELDMs preferred .005 of the lands. I have not anything less so may have some upward potential jammed or nearly jammed.

I've been shooting the ELDX's and they like .005 off the lands. Haven't tried to kiss or jam, shooting good out to 600 with the 6.5CM and 300WM, haven't got a chance to get past 600 yet but they shoot just as good or better than the berger hybrids. Also found they are shooting a hair faster than the bergers through the chrono. 143gr in 6.5CM @ 2680 200gr in 300WM @ 2900.

Especially seeing as they used dopler data to get bc but .320 is the number that works well for most.

My thoughts too and $10 cheaper per 100 than hybrids.

Exactly.

I was willing to run Berger's back in the day, but I got the A-Max to shoot better. A dime a bullet cheaper was a welcome side effect.

It's making me take a closer look at 6.5x47 again but the new 162 eldm might make me break the 7mm AI out for matches again.

Oh I know but a few factors keep me from jumping that heavy. First and main factor is the twist on the barrel likely wouldn't do well. I also doubt I could push it fast enough to show an advantage over the 160-162gr stuff.
