Very good.  I've just got one myself, developed a load for 144gr Berger hybrid and getting 2900 fps (30" 1:8 barrel).   Like a laser-beam at 500 yds even with a swirling breeze.  Very happy

A very good caliber. I bought one a couple of years ago (Savage Mod12 LRP, heavy 26'' fluted barrel 1:8 twist) and put it in a MDT ESS chassis. I worked up some rounds for it and settled on Nosler RDF 140grn bullets over RS62 powder in Hornady brass, putting out 2800 fps - shoots like a dream. I recently came back from Orion firearms training in mid Wales where it printed a 'rapid fire' 3 round group of 68mm at 800 yards - with a 25 mph full value wind.

Personally, I'd say get one!

Just ask for a 6.5mm. Then you can decide on the CM or other 6.5mm when you get it.

I hear the 6.5CM is so last year now, 6mm is the new thing.

I have decided to put in for a 6.5 as my renewal is going in this week, this is what I am thinking of buying Tikka T3x Tac A1 6.5 Creedmoor Rifle 24,, my question is I would like to get into long range shooting, is there any competions, around South Wales I could go as a spectator, to see what people are using, to find out how things work, thanks in advance

What powder and charge if you don’t mind me asking?
