    RPR 6.5 Creed

    Good gun easy to shoot... But heavy

    Still for the money in the right application- nothing comes close.

    Having shot a number of animals with the 6.5 Creed I feel that 600 yards is about the about the limit for taking game.

    Past that the pills just don't expand consistently and there is no room for any error at all.

    Hey Doc, I left a message on the comments of your video, love your shooting! I am very stoked as I JUST did the same with my rifle too. Went shooting early today and after save a sheep from the rose bush I spot a little mob at 660 meters, by the time I got ready they were 675... BOOM! Goats down!
    Congrats for the great video and work.

    Cheers.

    By the Way, what ammo you shooting and any idea of the velocity?

    140s at mag length.

    Tying to recall how much ... Did what I always do-went up till it was a little hot- fed primers started to flatten a little much then backed it off a grain.


    Around 130 fps more than I could get with 2209 ...

    Are you using the hornady brass or forming it from something else?
