No such thing as too overbore. They make new barrels every day.

Sounds like it would be perfect when they're done testing the Berger 155gr bullets

Hey Buzz, I have on video a friend of mine shooting a mile with a 25.6 inch barreled 6.5 creed at a mile. 14th round I believe running 42.1g H4350@2810fps. Don't give up on the good ol creed.

The 6.5 300 is both a great long range gun but was designed as a hunting rifle.
The 6.5 creed is a great caliber for shooting steel but not so much on anything
bigger than a whitetail.
I have not shot mine at a mile and never will, even though it will with no problems

Man burn a barrel in 500 rounds.....wow....I have a 30-378, nowhere near 500 rounds but has maybe 300 and bore and throat of the barrel look perfect...I have a friend with one with probably 1250 or so thru it...looked down the bore with my hawkeye and the rifling while not strong still looks sharp, and the throat--far from eroded and cracked...and still holds 3/4 min...same as the day it was barreled... I don't think with proper care you will burn the barrel in 500-or even 1000 rounds...and that's a lot of shooting.
