Booner, you are going to love that rifle. I've got one also........no photo's yet...........that I used this Deer season. I'm a meat hunter so I don't shoot monster bucks in general. I'm also a handloader and the 6.5 Creedmore is a new one for me which required ordering all the components. Everything arrived just in time to work up a load before opening day, but, why is there always a "but"
, the brass was faulty, bad primer pockets.
Long story short, I bought some factory Hornady Whitetail loads that uses the boring ol' 129gr. Interlock bullet.
It seem to shoot these pretty good so I bought a spare box.
10 minutes into opening day I shot my buck at approximately 45ft.
A true chipshot. Hit him square in the chest and it literally flipped him over backwards. He died with all 4 feet in the air.
That was pretty impressive even if it was practically right at the end of the muzzle.
So, I can honestly say that my Limited Edition 6.5 Creedmore is very accurate out to 45ft.
