    @Kudu, Well I had a Creedmoor with a 20" barrel & it was slower than my 6.5x47 (Hornady brass, 2209, 143eld) if you got some Lapua brass with the small primer pocket, Pushed it hard with a fast powder like Re17, etc then you'd probably get it to 2800, whether it would be accurate there, who knows? also hornady list there factory 143eld-X load as doing 2700fps from a 24" test barrel.
    Shut up, get out & start pushing!

    shooternz is right in that the 2.835" magazine length of a Remington short action will be restrictive for a Creedmore. With the reamer cut for freebore to keep the boattail junction just inside the neck the OAL for just touching is going to be up around 2.9".
    The 6.5x47 will fit a Rem SA and allow for touch or jamming with typical throating; with a 0.17" freebore just touching with the 140gr ELD-M and 140gr VLD both give a OAL of 2.78", and 2.79" for the 130gr VLD (slightly different ogive from the 140 it appears).

    That looks good VFT, did you fit the adjustable cheek piece on or was it standard
    only ones I've seen are raised but not adjustable @von tempsky fan

    It came like that , i think they have the fixed cheek piece option as well I paid 2200 for it, Alan knocked 200 off it - whakatane h&f has another one identical in stock.
    I removed the factory piticanny as it weighed shitloads and just threw on 30mm low optis

    Running a Model 7 in 260 that I had reamed with @Mathias 30 degree reamer. As mentioned already, seating length is the likley issue (or non-issue as in my case). 140gn Berger VLD's doing 2751fps with a single digit ES. Pushing by a CCI 250 Prime and 44.5gn of N160, seated to mag length. 19 inch barrel with older Hardy can. I run out of energy (1000ft-lbs) at 800 yards. Have shot plenty of animals between 400 and 600 yards without issues.

    My 30deg 260 reamer is essentially a 6.5 Creedmoor with a 2.9mm longer case. It was around for a while before the CM became popular. @Uplandstalker thats great shooting

    It's ideal as it sits right between a 6.5CR and a 260AI. I've only ever neck sized, but some cases are starting to get a little tight on closing the bolt. Not that I've been counting, but must have 5 or 6 reloads though the cases. All RP brass that is going OK.

    @Mathias What did you do for dies, Did you have to get them made?

    I bought Redding dies from the designer of the reamer. Uplandstalker uses a Lee collet die from memory.
