    Savage lightweight hunter 6.5 Creedmoor

    Have decided to sell this as I'm just not using it.

    Extremely tidy, basically mint condition.

    Cool little rifle and a really nice light carry weight.








    I've only done basic load development but it shows promise shooting both 130g VLD and 143g eldx at around .7 inch at 100 yds.




    The 143g seated right out fits the mag really well and that's just off the lands.

    Holds 1000 ft lbs to about 700 yards with the 143g VLD.

    Comes with the Talley lightweight rings, Hornady new dimension dies and hornady brass (mix of new and once fired) - no scope.

    $1,200 incl freight to your door

    Holy smokes that's a good price


    Bring it down to the Toby memorial shoot tomorrow to assault some of Brads gongs, we just settled in for the night and the fibs are flowing as fast as the refreshments

    Yep just measured it, standard length at 20".

    And it's definitely 1/2 inch thread and very fine, so 28tpi would likely be correct.
