my wifes 6.5 creedmoor!!!

Bought my wife a savage 16 in 6.5 Cree Moor and it shoots fantastic. The following picture is three different loads I tried all are ten round groups at 100 yards. The gun has a Bushnell trophy xlt 4-12.

If it shoots that good, you better not make her angry!

All funning aside, that's pretty good.

Nice!!!!

At least you know if she does get angry it's one shot one kill. I've told my wife that I don't care if she kills me I just don't want to suffer.

Another thing that amazed me was how little recoil this particular weapon had. I got a load worked up sighted in and all set up now I got to break out the 22 and teach her how to shoot. She wants to hunt this season.
