6.5 Creedmoor for Plains Game

I was hoping to see the answer that I knew to be the correct one prior to asking the question. Seattlesetters got it right. There is none. Even the time honored 7x57 and or the 275 Rigby when used with a 140 Gr. bullet deliver the same ballistics.
You can comfortably shoot all the plains game with premium bullets is your 6.5 CM. My clients shoot mostly with my 6.5’s (260, 6.5 CM, 6.5-284) cause i know how well they kill and they shoot them well. There is no replacement for shot placement. That combined with good premium bullets is all you need. 130gr NAB, 143gr ELDX, 120gr TTSX or 130gr TSX is what i shoot. No Eland or Sable bull can handle a TTSX or TSX from a 6.5, believe me.

looking for 300 h & h flanged ammo
Looking for shipping advice. I will be hunting in Limpopo in March, and was wanting to know a general idea of shipping costs to return my mounts to the US when completed. Air or sea? Only plains game hunting.

Good morning 7MAG. I have a NEW, never mounted, Leupold M8-4X Extended Eye Relief scope that I will sell you for $325 shipped to you. I was a Leupold rep for 12 years and this was always our preferred mounting for a lever gun, scout rifle style.

You’ve got an interesting screen name. Will the Thrill provided lots of great times for me as a lifelong Giants fan. Even though I never met him, a number of buddies either duck hunted or shared a dugout with him. He’s a great guy according to those guys. Cool screen name and if that’s your real name, it’s a great one.
