I, like Bill think that only accurate rifles are of interest. 

DS - Me too

I think you will like the 6.5 Creedmore and would appreciate your views after shooting one. 


DS - I haven't shot one yet, but I'm keen to try Shy

My son got one a couple weeks ago and he's already shooting milk jugs at 1000 yards.
The creedmoor is so accurate it's almost boring... almost.
A human being should be able to change a diaper, plan an invasion, butcher a hog, conn a ship, design a building, write a sonnet, balance accounts, build a wall, set a bone, comfort the dying, take orders, give orders, cooperate, act alone, solve equations, analyze a new problem, pitch manure, program a computer, cook a tasty meal, fight efficiently, die gallantly. Specialization is for insects. ---Robert Heinlein

I think it may an answer to a ? no-one has asked, but what's good for the industry is good.

I'm not sure there is a caliber which makes 1000y shots easy.

At one time, I would have been keenly interested in the newest flavor of the week.  

As I have gotten older, I guess I have also became more skeptical.  Unfortunately I have seen so many new, best & greatest up and coming marvels of the week, ride the crest of popularity for a year or two, and then start fading into the sunset, being almost non-existent in 8 - 10 years.  

If, it is leading the pack in a decade, I might begin to have a little interest.

I think those days are long gone - products come & go with monotonous regularity now - even if they still exist the owner / country of manufacture will change Confused

At least with centrefire cartridges all you need is brass or dies to convert from a related case Rolleyes

I guess, I have always marched to the tune of a different drummer, from the normal crowd.  Likes & dislikes are so many, varied, & fickle, sometimes we are hard pressed to know ourselves what made us favor one item over another.  

Quality should never be overlooked or forgotten, but being different can have it advantages too!

Many years ago, an older gent employed with many years under his belt, where I was beginning work and I had some unique interests in common despite our age differences.  We were discussing trailers one day, and I was considering purchasing one at the time.  He told me purchase one with a tongue designed to accept a 2 5/16 inch ball.  I commented those are not that common, and they weren't back then.  He said, "Yeah, I know, but it sure cuts down on people wanting to borrow your trailer!"  And that analogy applies to many things in life.

Maybe, I need to begin thinking more along those lines again.  There sure would not be that many people needing to borrow a few 6.5 Creedmore cartridges, as opposed to .30-30, .308 & .30-06.

I don't lend guns or chainsaws,.............but shared trailers have always made sense to me - so long as it's a two way deal. Wink

I have always been cautious about lending things, and don't lend much anymore at all.  There are a few close friends & relatives, I would lend just about anything they needed if I had it, then on the other hand there are a few family members I would not lend a cool breeze.
