The magical 264 caliber 6.5 Creedmoor is my new obsession.

AR15, AK47, FAL, Bolt, Hangun, etc... If I find we need it I will expand this forum.

I’ve got to do some studying up on second focal plane scopes like this. I’ve never used one before.

I bought a Savage in Creedmoor for my wife and daughter to use hunting. My 14 YO daughter shot a mule deer doe with it last year. It's a light rifle and she is petite for her age, but has no problems shooting it at the range. I also picked up a Ruger Precision Rifle in the same caliber, but haven't put a good scope on it yet. I shoot a 260 in local long range matches, but decided to use the Creedmoor to get my wife and kids something to be able to shoot along with me at long range.

I've picked up a Savage Axis II in Creedmoor. If the snow melts by July, I hope to try it out.

After running all sorts of calcs, I've decided 123 grains is probably the "sweet spot" for bullet weight. (enough BC with a high enough velocity.)

I really need to get out on the range with mine but haven’t had the time. When I get a day off from my job the weather usually sucks, my energy levels suck or it’s too dang muddy to get back into the range. This Texas winter has been an extremely wet one. And cold too. We are getting a pretty stiff cold front again this weekend and North Texas May even see some ice again. I’m done with this cold wet weather.

Oh boo hoo! Ask me about my weather! The only happy people up here are the snow mobiler's. :|
Currently -4 as I write this, We haven't had a winter like this, this century. Close to 4 ft of snow this month and none of it has melted. Running out of places to put it. Driveways look like white box canyons.

Yeah, it's getting where I can't see down the street when I get to a corner.

What was the deal with that 131 car pileup last Sunday? The local towing company(s) must have been ecstatic over that one. ;)
