New Rifle
« on: August 11, 2020, 08:08:13 PM »
I've got the itch for a new rifle and scope.  I'm looking at 6.5 Creedmore.  Unfortunately I shoot left handed so my choices are limited.  I've been looking at Christensen Arms Mesa and Fierce Rifles. Also thought about Remington Custom Shop.  Any advice would be appreciated.

What's the role you're looking to fill?

I'd say that would narrow it down further and you should have no problem getting a fine wrong handed rifle 😁

Kidding!

Any traditional calibers you don't have?
What's pushing you towards the 6.5?

And before anyone twists my words I did not say there was anything wrong with the 6.5 creedmoor even if it is a 308 win with a manbun

Nothing wrong with that 🤣

Bergera makes a very nice left handed model.  They promise .5 moa out of the box too.  I love my creedmoor and think any of the 6.5 would be a good choice.   :tup:

I'll sell you my Browning Hells Canyon Speed Creedmoor so I can get a PRC. $1550 with a VX-5 3-15 scope. Bangs steel all day long at 600 plus. My 11 year old was busting steel coyotes at 525. Great rifle but I would have bought the PRC if it were around then.

I'm a lefty and use right handed rifles.

You could give SPR Industries a shout and have Tom build you a custom rifle.

Not sure what your price point is or if you are in a hurry to get a new rifle. After doing some research and talking to a military buddy I opted to go with a seekins precision havak ph2. I havenít received it yet but itís American made in Lewiston,Id. Supposed to be a great company with lots of great reviews. Comparable in price to Christensen.

Thanks for the input. I'm giving my 30 06 to my friends son.  I have a 300 Win mag, a 338 Win mag and a 375 H&H Winchester which I got for a safari but it didn't happen.  Looking for something for deer and antelope to replace the "06. I appreciate the help.

Well I hate to be that guy but IF I were going to buy a Creed, Iíd have a hard time buying anything besides a Tikka. I bought one for my Dad before our Colorado trip last year because his .270 was acting up, and holy expletives does it shoot. I have a lot of accurate rifles, as well as a few other Tikkas that are great shooters, but this thing is phenomenal. For a $700 rifle and $30 factory ammo it is real hard to beat. Plus you could throw it in a Mesa Precision stock and still be less money than the others youíve mentioned. I havenít reloaded for it yet because the factory stuff shoots so well, the only down side is theyíre slow and the SD isnít great so you get some vertical when you get way out there. This is the first 6 shots out of a brand new rifle, 1-3 eld-x with a sighter off paper, 4-6 eld-m. Bore snake between each shot. 100rds down the tube now still shooting great
