Same here. Just shy of 2800 with a 20” barrel in a ultra light pleasure to carry and shoot.

What is the load your using for 2800fps out of a 20” using the 143eld-x?  That’s some crazy good speed with a creedmoor and 143gr..

Funny. I was was talking with a guy the other day who ran the 6.5 Creedmoor into the ground. Talked allot of smack. He walked away and my deputy sheriff friend standing there that over heard it laughed. I asked what was up. He looked at me and said “It’s all talk, he’s not allowed to possess a firearm’.

I got a kick out of that!!!

That’s the reason my 300 win is called the pig d___. It’s a spiral fluted barrel.   :chuckle:
