What say you about the 6.5mm PRC? Sounds pretty hot! I bet Chris Farris is all over this like flies on a cow patty!

Looks like a barrel eater.
Life's concerns should be about the 120lb pack your trying to get to the top of the mountain, and not the rock in your boot.

IIRC they are estimating 3000 to 4000 round barrel life out of it.

 2900 FPS (with 140S), magnum bolt face, meh.  It is a little faster than a CM, and since I have a CM, not sure I'll invest in this quite yet.

But interesting.

It requires a medium size action too.  It I didn't have a creed, I think it would be worth considering. But the 100 to 150 fps you gain not really worth it for my uses.  I am pretty heavily invested in reloading dies, and brass in 6.5 creed at this point.

They said they didn't want to seat the bullet into the powder simply so that it would fit a Remington short action.....They also will have detachable after-market magazines for Remingtons....

 I've considered the 6.5 creedmoor quite a bit, but every time I got close to "pulling the trigger" (get it...6.5 creedmoor rifle... pulling the trigger... ) I just have not been able to make myself do it.  I like the specs on the 6.5 PRC and have zero invested in 6.5CM.  I may have to give this one a try. However, the 26, 28, 30 Nosler's are hanging around out there...

So many choices... I've started to build a rifle a half dozen times and backed out before actually beginning.   Maybe... just maybe... I REALLY don't need another... and MAYBE I really don't want another... I don't know...

Opinion,untempered by fact,is ignorance.
