  2. Well, don't tell the wife, I bought a rifle today and the safe is already full. Cabela's was having a sale on the T/C Compass rifle. I watched a lot of review videos online since the Compass came out and it is suppose to be a heck of a gun. T/C guarantees MOA with quality factory ammo so we will see. They cost of the gun was $299 on sale and then T/C has a $75 mail in rebate, so for $225 I will have a brand new 6.5 Creedmoor. They had to ship from a different store so I will have it by next Friday. Plenty of time to look up load data and dust off the reloading bench. Also to figure out how to tell the wife.
  3. Thanks to those who offered advice on my previous 6.5X55 Reloading Thread http://www.coueswhitetail.com/forums/topic/73806-65x55-se-handloading-whats-its-potential/ Took my new T3 to the range today. Shot 10 different 5 shot strings with both Reloder 23 and Reloder 26, shooting 143gr ELD-X,Lapua Brass, COAL 3.174", .003 off the lands, 22.4" fluted barrel. R26 showed higher velocity and got me up over 3050 fps but all R26 loads were right at, or a hair over 1 moa at 100 yards. Didn't see any classic signs of high pressure, but the brass offered more resistance than I'd like when I resized them. The R23 showed exceptional accuracy in loads between 2830 and 2865 fps (See pics below) and the brass resized effortlessly. I gotta say, this gun is a joy to shoot, weighs a little over 7 lbs scoped and all I did was put in a $7 varmint trigger spring from Ernie the Gunsmith, swap out the T3 Stock for a Takeoff T3X stock, and put on a limbsaver pad. I'm really impressed with the factory trigger, and it breaks cleanly at 1.3 lbs. with the new spring. I might do a little more work with the R26 or some VV N560 or MRP to see if there is an accuracy node around 2900fps, but for now, I'm more than happy with how it shot today and plan on hunting with this load in October. The R23 seems like a winner in the 6.5 swede! avg. 2860 fps avg. 2863 fps avg. 2843 fps

    I have an unopened 1 lb bottle of Reloder 16. I bought it for load development but decided to go another route. Paid $32 I'll take $25 looks to be good for light to midwight bullets in 6.5 CM, .260 rem, 30-06, and .270 win , sized cartridges and is temp stable. Click here to learn more. Shoot me a PM if your interested. I am in Chandler.
  5. I'm looking for handload info from those of you experienced with the 6.5X55 SE. I'm curious about what kind of velocity I can safely attain in a modern action. I'd like to get a new 6.5 for this fall and am considering both the 6.5X55 and the 6.5 Creedmoor. I like the new Tikka T3X and have been considering a Ruger American as well, but don't really want to replace the cheap stock. It will be a hunting rifle and something else to shoot when I get the urge. I'll probably stick to bullets it the 140gr range in either cartridge. The Creedmoor appears to top out at ~2700 fps with 140gr pills. The Swede sure seems like it could have a lot of potential in one of those new Tikka's!

  7. I had been ogling a used Kimber 84M Classic Select at Ruffs Guns in Flagstaff for quite a while and eventually succumbed to its temptation. Originally chambered in 243Win, it will be rebarreled to 6.5 Creedmoor. The SSSM barrel from Pac-Nor will arrive Monday. Everything should come together in time for the November 27th Coues hunt in 35A.

  9. Well guys I did it again. I was so impressed by the repeat accuracy and precision from my first build I thought I would do another. This time I shopped around for months looking for a NEW donor action. My local gun shop had called me and told me he had found 3 of them. I wanted all 3 but could only get 1. The reason is the actions were COMPLETELY stripped, no triggers, no trigger housings not even the safety red dot. I was able to still get the action cheap enough I could order everything I needed from savage and other places. So I did. Here she is so far. Parts on gun: 6.5 creedmoor Shilen Stainless steel select match 26" 1:8 twist ratchet barrel HS Precision stock-Devcon bedded Karsten comb Northland Shooters Supply precision lug and trued nut Savage action model 10fcp w/factory trigger housing and firing pin PTG Bolt body PTG bolt head Rifle Basix trigger Valdada 20moa base and 30mm rings Parts still on there way: Sightron 6-24X50 LR FFP MOA scope (tuesday) Glades armory tactical bolt handle (today YAH) Tubb precision level (bubble level) (god knows when lol)
