Unless you've got a mile to shoot. Seriously...

On another note had a sales person at Cabelas tell me the 6.5 Creedmoor has "terminal performance issues."
It was at that point I pulled out my cell phone showing him 40 hogs I've dropped over the past years using 6 different bullets. Everyone of them efficiently dropping Texas boars from 25-315 lbs. I wasn't trying to be a jerk, just informative in hopes he stops the myth of "poor terminal issues."

I like all the former snipers that work at the Academy gun counters....Their stories and the great information that they so willingly pass on have, just so much values. I am pretty sure it is a prerequisite to being hired at Academy!!!!! bolt

Was that you in the video? I have some footage of me and a buddy at 1800 shooting. I was shooting a 7 saum and he was shooting a 7 mag. He decided to see how his GA precision 6.5 would do. After round 17 he was on the plate. With 140 hybrids.
