All this talk about the 6.5 Creedmoor on every hunting site I read, had to check the history.

As Sergeant Hans Schultz used to say, Very Interesting!

PJ - Thanks for the info. Creed Farms was located on Long Island, NY (back when those folks had common sense about them) in 1874...according to my sources...

Great story. Love my .260. Got it before 6.5. Otherwise would own 6.5.
