So, has anyone punched any of them down range? If so, how did they perform?

I've talked to a few guys that have ran them with good luck. Bc has been a touch higher and it seems hit or miss on seating depth comparability.

My 6mm creed barrel has 1500rds so I'm not sure if I'll try them now or after the new tube gets spun on.

Meh. Cheaper than berger hybrids with a better bc. Easier to get so far than the dtac and doesn't seem like it will need a 7 twist like the new 110 sierra.

So 1500 rounds is at the barrel life limit for the 6MM Creed? I figured with the sharp shoulder and long neck barrel life would be much better than the 243 has.

It still has more life and is shooting lights out. I'm going to have a new tube spun up because I don't want it to go south mid match.

Barrel life with them seems a bit subjective depending on who you ask. Some say as little as 1200 where others are in the 2500 area. Shooting habits obviously matter so if a fella can keep the heat down it'll likely last longer.
