    Ha Ha The cook is planning on a large tomato yield in the tunnel house this year. It won't go to waste.

    Interesting they are doing 6.5 creed.

    Just as good as 338 lap or 300 wm to 1000 yards...

    And light recoil... AR style safety ... Side folding stock ... Already that makes it at least 3000 bucks cheaper than the next chassis with those kind of features.

    It will be popular if it shoots!!

    The Creedmoor 10.6 ib and 24" barrel.

    Wonder why they went for 6.5 Creedmore over 260 Rem?

    6.5CM has a lot more market support than .260 for the intended audience of this rifle. Factory match ammunition, increasing popularity in competitions, etc. Remington is intensely retarded and totally dropped the ball on the "precision rifle" potential of the .260, there's next to no market support for it in that role.

    It looks like a ruger American in wolf cloth. That is probably why they offer some of the same caliber options as the ruger american predator... Yep they should have one the 6.5 creedmoor in 26" as well.
