After missing a shot at a deer last year I no longer have confidence with my old sporter Springfield 1903-A1 30.06 to ethically take an animal. I went to look at rifles at a local shop and saw a nice Bergera rifle chambered in 6.5 Creedmoor but by the time I scoped it would have put it around $1500. Too much for this old man to spend. So I questioned my sanity, had a reality check and settled on a Ruger American 6.5 Creedmoor and a Vortex scope and put them in layaway. I don't like the cheap plastic stock an have already been looking at Boyd's for a replacement. The 6.5 CM is a round I have only heard about, but have heard good things and the YouTube vids seem very positive. Do any of you gun guys have any experience with this round or have opinions?
