Was previewing through the Black Friday sales at PSA, and spotted the sale I've been waiting a while for, a 20" 6.5 Creedmoor upper, along with a 3X9 scope with an AR mount. Hopefully it will arrive before Christmas! Now for dies and brass? Already have the lower, lower kit, and .264" bullets.

6.5 Creedmoor is a nice round.
My nephew loads his own and it's capable of some pretty good accuracy.

Had a guy offer me a Savage in 6.5 as a partial trade on some 3 point implements. I said no.
He brought the rifle out and was hitting Coke cans at 330 yards.
I still said no.
I have a Savage rifle and I know what the 6.5 can do.
It is above my skill grade and I don't want to fill another caliber.

They have to keep coming up with new cartridges, so people will buy new rifles. 6.5 Creedmore and 300 Blackout seem to the the "in vogue" cartridges in my neighborhood currently.

I'm a 6.5mm kinda guy. Have a Swedish Mauser, and a 6.5 Grendel, so I've got a lot of bullets already. I've even got a 6.5mm bullet mold I'll have to pull out soon.

The 6.5 Creedmore is a nice cartridge.
We have a couple in the house but have not gotten into them that much.
Just don't have the time.
Hopefully next year.
