    should not be too difficult, a million peeps run Varget and shoot well. However, sometimes load development is like falling out of bed, other times not so easy. Good luck.

So on both fronts, I am seeing better performance, happy with my 20'SS MWS barrel.

    If you are on the fence, go for.

    Merry Christmas

    You won't hear me complaining

    Five rounds to sight in then shot these two groups back to back using two different loads with about an MOA shift between groups. The 20" SS is a keeper.

    Boba, baddass groups. Glad to see your 20SS is solid. Those are some solid groups. Congrats.

    Nice groups. Reloads? Which factory ammo? Sorry if I missed it some where. 20 in a 6.5 CM is definitely next after I am done reloading for .308.

    Those groups Boba shot out of the gate is really impressive. He may have gotten a straight up jewel of a 20SS. I need to relax and shoot some more groups and see if mine can shoot lights out. We focus too much on LR sometime and don't ring out the proven accuracy. Sunday it is. Mine shot similar to that if I remember, guys go buy a 20SS.

    Pappabear,

    I was wondering if you ever came up with any good loads for your 6.5 creed LMT? I just picked up a 20” barrel.

    I shoot so many rounds and factory stuff is so good so cheap, I mainly shoot :
    Am Gunner 140 BTHP
    S&B 140 , cost .60 a round

    Then if I really want super accurate, I’ll shoot Hornady ELD Match ammo at more like $1.00 a round.

    So, no I haven’t worked on a load. We have battled without great success for the bolt gun. Done ok, but nothing that made us say, shit that is a nice load.

    Let us know how it shoots. Congrats on your new barrel.

    Guilty as charged, too.

    Shot some Hornady 140gr American gunner. I think it shot decent got a couple .6 MOA groups, but I’m hoping to improve still.
