    6.5 Creedmoor Savage lightweight

    Savage lightweight 6.5 Creedmoor, bought this on an impulsive whim from another member to see what the calibre was like, I want to buy a VX6 so out this goes to free up some funds. Comes with talley rings, dies (missing the decapping pin, easy enough to get a replacement) and some brass.

    I had a small play with it & did some basic load development with the 143Eld-X, seems to throw the first shot from a clean barrel (not unusual or maybe it dosn't like the cleaning products I use) and then it settles down, in the limited shooting I did with it the best groups I managed were 3/4" most were around 1.2", previously owners got it shooting better than this, I didn't let it cool between shots, it would quite often shoot the first two together & third would open the group up as the thin barrel got hot.
    I got a box of hornady Precision hunter 143eld-X to try & it shot them ok.

    Usual police paperwork required, $1050 to your door.

    Hey Nor-west - buy this one! You'll be able to keep it for long enough to break the record for ownership, which I believe I currently hold (nearly a year, shot one deer, one cattlebeast and a couple of tahr). Dammed if I know why folks sell it on, I liked it and wished I'd never sold it. If I wasn't broke I'd have it back in a heartbeat.

    Me too
    Nothing is tough about having a 70 lb bow and looking like an uncoordinated praying mantis while trying to draw it back.
