Doing a little research for a buddy who just bought a Barrett fieldcraft 21" 6.5 Creedmoor.

Those of you who shoot this caliber with factory ammo, which one do you have the best accuracy with. Trying to get a consensus so he doesn't have to test a box of everyone.

If you don't shoot factory 6.5 Creedmoor no comments are needed.

My friend shoots the 143 ELD-X factory loads in his Savage Stealth, and I have been very impressed with how they shoot. That is the only factory Creed load I have even second hand experience with though, so take it with a grain of salt.

I'd run the eld ammo if it shoots it good. Winchester makes some now too but don't know anyone that's ran it yet.

Thanks Dee, I saw some Winchesters with ballistic tips which should be good.
