The love af­fair with the 6.5 Creed­moor has fi­nally gone too far. Your ar­ti­cle com­par­ing the 6.5 Creed­moor to the .264 Win. Mag. is based on one state­ment—that the .264 can’t ad­e­quately sta­bi­lize more bul­let than a 140-grain flat-base Spitzer. I per­son­ally fire a 140-grain Sierra boat­tail at 200 yards for a best group of .60 inch. If that’s not sta­ble, I don’t know what is. The tra­jec­tory and en­ergy for that wipes out the Creed at all dis­tances. Stop mak­ing the Creed more than it is: a su­perb match car­tridge. If you wanted that per­for­mance in the field, you could have used the .260 Rem­ing­ton 10 years ear­lier.
