    6.5 Creedmoor v 6.5 Swede

    I have a 6.5 Creedmoor. I absolutely love it despite have a Mauser M12 Impact in .308 previously which was a superb rifle. As Catch stated, the Swede is a long action which is no deal breaker but there is more of a choice of ammunition in 6.5x55 in the UK compared to the Creedmoor. The question is how much choice do you need when 142gn SMK's shoot onto one ragged hole at 100 yards, Hornady 143ELD - X shoot into 0.6MOA and Norma Match similar. Recoil is negligible. Better mousetrap comes to mind. Personally, I'm happy with my decision and the confidence it gives me in my shooting.

    17H - 18, 20 or 22 inch barrel . . .

    Factory Weihrauchs are 18, 20 and 22. The current available HW66's in 17H are 18 though I'm about to order a 20. If they did not think 18's work, then I guess they would not produce them.

    Best moderator

    I would put Calibre Innovations OVB into the mix. Stunning engineering quality, moderation and service. It ticks all the above criteria.

    Rabbits and .22

    I've had this conversation recently with (unnamed manufacturer) direct after suffering really poor performance on their new Subs. This is after the intemperate quality of .17HMR ammunition - with quality issues still going on four years later to be brutally honest and I sold my rifle as I lost trust in it. It was only when the issue was highlighted in Gun Trade News that changes happened. If quality issues arise with car tyres, brakes or airbags, then there is a recall. To be told "we don't know" what batches are affected is negligent to say the least. I really don't know why we accept this ??

    Delta Stryker

    "I think a Zeiss V6 is what I'll look into" Very clean and simple, with good glass but SFP. MOA only and no IL in the ZBR ret. I don't think I can live with that. The Delta is a steal.

    My new varmint rifle

    Maximus. Very nice looking rifle / rig. I do like those Sako 75's. Would do me just dandy in .17 Hornet.

    Newsatt. How do you like it ?. I'm planning April to order one for the 6.5cm. Best. David

    Thumbhole stock for custom build

    I was very impressed by Form Rifle stocks at the Shooting Show. I was going to order one.

    ATACR vs Razor AMG

    Dave - was it a Swaro X5 you first tested and if so what spec if you can recall. Thanks. I want to invest in a tac scope for my 6.5 cm but there is a leap (in faith and cash) from the Delta Stryker at £1300 to a S&B or X45. Thanks. David
