New Toy purchased yesterday, check this one out. Shouldn't have stopped at Sportsman Warehouse, a friend and myself were just looking. Then at the same time we asked how many in stock .... we came home with new toys.

Not a bad price. We were looking at the savage in 338 lapua but after reading the reviews and seeing that the savage barrel was only good up to 600 yards, that idea was scrapped.

why the 6.5 though?

The 6.5 has the same or slightly better knock power of the old .308 and is flatter shooting per several of the 1000 yard guys that we have talked to.  I noticed it had lighter recoil than my .308 and knowing that we seemed to relax and shoot the new guns right out of the box better. The new scope with its power and picture are a big improvement over the Burris used on the other rifle.

I'd take a 6.5 over a .308 any day...better ballistics and recoil.  Excellent choice Buck' :tup2

New Toy purchased yesterday. 2Q==

For Better Performance, If You Want It. The 6.5 Creedmoor is clearly a ballistically better cartridge than 308. The 308 was designed in 1952 for a semi-automatic military rifle, while the 6.5 Creedmoor was designed in 2007 for better long range target performance in a bolt action rifle.
