6.5 Creedmoor: The Kool-Aid tastes good!!

So I finally got a chance to go out and shoot my 6.5 Creedmoor build... And I will say the cartridge lives up to all the hype.. Its easy on the shoulder, not terribly loud and the 6.5 bullets do defy the wind as their high coefficients would suggest... No pics of the groups as I forgot the camera, but none of them were above 3/4" @ 100 yards even with the cross wind... On a day with the shooter doing better job and less wind, this thing will do ragged holes at 100 yards..

Rifle Specs:

Stevens Model 200 Short Action (Savage Model 10, Pre-Accutrigger)
-Action work
-24" ER SHAW Match Barrel #5 Contour
-McMillan Savage Hunter, Glass and Pillar Bedding, Custom Color Mix
-Match Recoil Lug
-Rifle Basix Trigger
-Scope: Leupold Custom Shop, VX3L 4.5-14x56mm LR Side Focus, CDS

Anyone on the fence about this cartridge, have no fear it lives up the hype... If you don't like hornady brass, this round can be easy made from the common 22-250 brass if needed...
