6.5 Creedmore

We had a Savage rep at the range today, with several rifles and Hornady ammo to shoot. He had two .300 Win Mags, a .308, a .17HMR, and a 6.5 Creedmore. The only one that really impressed me was the 6.5 Creedmore. That is one tack-driving round! It was making one hole groups with ease. We don't even have ammo at the range for that. I was very impressed with it though.

On a side note, I got to fondle one of the 100 anniversary Colt 1911s. The boss wont carry new Colts, but this one is for a Friends of NRA event. BEAUTIFUL does not even begin to describe this gun. Engraved, gold inlays, special serial numbers (this one started with 1911NRA and then a 3 digit serial number!)

All in all, one of my better days at work!

Re: 6.5 Creedmore

Sounds way better than any of my days at work.

I've seen those Colts. A little too much with the bling for me, but nice.

Is that 6.5 a short round? I'm thinking that was one of them made up for the AR rifles, to possibly replace the 5.56? The 6.8 is an awesome round too.

Maybe I'm losing my mind. I'm at that age you know.
