Fulton Armory 6.5 Creedmore??

Perhaps old news to others, but glancing at the FA web site they are advertising their rifles in subject caliber and for those into extended range shooting that is a heck of a cartridge. Now does the M14 platform do justice to this caliber, don't know, but would be an interesting rifle to have. Did shoot with couple guys in HP matches and they had a SAI/M1A from the factory in 243 Winchester or that is where they claimed it was from. It shot fine from my memory but it is a barrel eater from what I was told?? That 6.5Creedmore is the cats meow for ranges out to and including the 1000yd. line. If I were some 50 years or so younger would sell off some other goodies and "get me some of that..."

The 6.5 Creedmoore is an excellent cartridge, however the M14 is very hard on brass and 6.5 brass is expensive. The .308 is much easier on the pocket book. I broke down and bought a nice 6.5 Rugar PR to satisfy my curiosity. Saved a lot of money on the gun and the brass will last a whole lot longer.
