    I think the appropriate answer would be "if you gotta ask, you cant afford it" ;-)

    Can you tell me the spec on the 25 Creedmoor I have been thinking of one for a long time.
    Do you use the Ace 131?

    Thanks @Tahr I watch that a while ago I have always been a fan of the .25 Cal I have had a 25/08 for years built by Steve Blankhard with a PacNor barrel I would love a 25 Creedmoor if others made a high BC pill around that 130grn

    Ive only used the 110 ELDs and 115 bergers so far. I want to see how light a pill they can shoot before I will commit to a 1 in 7.5 twist just incase they don't like the 131s or supply becomes an issue

    Hi Cam,
    How is the repeatability of the switch barrel system on that rifle? Have you played a bit with it?

    Hey Mate, not at this stage have torqued it up as per a normal until the second barrel in 6.5 PRC is done for it as the owner wont be touching it until then.

    Same here..I'm just waiting for a nice 25-06 to turn up so I can re-chamberber it to .257 Roberts AI..... And yes I know some may think that is a backwards step...

    Yip I thought that straight off.
    Have you thought about the 25/08.
    I would use a 1in8 or 1 in 7 in hope that others will make high BC bullets
