Default A Modern Classic in a Hipster Caliber

Several months ago, I got a few hundred on a gift card as a 15th anniversary recognition from my employer. I was bound and determined to use the whole enchilada on a good piece of hardware, as opposed to squandering it on some bags of groceries, lawn fertilizer, and a lube oil and filter.

I'm a short action, 308/223/22-250 guy, but the modern hipster calibers have been sitting in the back of my mind for a while. It seemed like I needed to try a 6.5 something if I'm going to be a respectable rifleman. Grendel, Creedmoor, PRC, all cool names for sure. Not that I need any respect from anyone, but I'm an experimenter at the core. I like to try new things.

I had every intention of buying a hipster gun to go with the caliber. I looked long and hard at the Tikka T3x Varmint, the Bergara B14 HMR, and the Browning Hells Canyon LR. All spectacular weapons, but I just couldn't do it. I need more than a functional tool. I need a little bit of gorgeous in my rifles.

The Sportsman's Warehouse in the next town over had this Super Grade sitting on the shelf. I looked at it a few times, I looked at a few in the next state south of me, looked at one in the local Sportsman's, and finally decided to go back and take this one home. I already have a Maple Super Grade in 308, so it only seemed right to get the Black Walnut version in 6.5 Manbun.

I can't wait to go shoot it. Range report forthcoming.

Beautiful furniture on that rifle. We be waiting for the range report. What type of glass are you going to mount on it?

if you had found something in 6.5 Swede you wouldn't have to wear the manbun.

: )

Nice rifle - congrats

I was thinking the exact same thing.

Just yesterday I was in a pawn and gun shop talking with a young employee there and he had no idea what their 6.5Swede ammo was used in. When I told him about the M96 Swedish Mauser and what the ballistics typically were he started naming several of the "new" 6.5 fad cartridges out there now. I just chuckled and told him the 6.5 Swede has them all beat by about a 120+ years.

Heck my 1904 CG M96 is just a youngin'.

Cool gun and story. But which 6.5 mm did you get?

Good looking Model 70. I think you're going to enjoy shooting the 6.5mm Creedmoor.

I'm huge fan of the old 6.5 SE and the 6.5 Creed pretty much duplicates it so many ask why the Creedmoor. It all come down to serious engineering. The neck and throat specs of these newer cartridge really do make for an inherently more accurate round. A while ago I read a really technical article on the .300 PRC and neck and throat specifications along with twist and other stuff. I wish I could find it again and link it. The newer throat specs are designed to really reduce the bullet yaw as it leaves the case.

I'll give another plus for the new kid the 6.5 Creedmoor and that is the really great factory loaded ammo. When setting up my cheap Ruger American Predator 6.5mm Creedmoor I wanted to have the turrets engraved for the Hornady Precision Hunter 6.5mm 143 grain ELD-X load. We cronographed 10 rounds from a cold barrel. The standard deviation in velocity was shocking...3 fps. That is from a factory load.

I glad the 6.5mm Creedmoor was such a marketing success. With Americans discovering 6.5 calibers and having them become very mainstream came a bunch of great 6.5mm bullets. Now I just need Americans to figure out that the 9.3mm calibers are spectacular on game so the ammo and bullet selection increases.

So far I've heard of very few people with 6.5 Creedmoor, cheap to outrageously expensive, the didn't shoot lights out. I bet your new Super Grade will preform.

My Ruger shoots nice sub .5 MOA groups.

That's a good question. Need to balance out elegance with LR capability. I don't know for sure. For today, it's a 2x7 VARI-X IIc just because I had this scope and hardware laying around.

Are you sure that's enough caliber for Hipster gluten-free taco season.

Did SW include the optional 6.5 starter kit,, or did you have to buy it??



At $9.99, the starter kit is VERY affordable,,

I showed my wife the starter kit and she laughed so hard she cried.

I had the choice of a starter kit or a sampler pack. I chose the latter. For those wondering why I didn't seek out a Swede or a 260 or a surplus 6.5 J, this is one of the reasons...

This is the reason the ammo companies can’t manage to produce the old classic cartridges. 35Rem, 300 Sav and dozen other cartridges that there are thousands of rifles still in existence floating around.

My 6.5 has been around for 56 years and still shoots 3/4 inch groups at 200 yards. Of course it's a Winchester Westerner in .264 Win Mag. I actually bought it in 95 and it had the hangey tag still threaded through the trigger guard and looked brand new. I have only shot 140 Noslers with IMR 7828. Chronographs 3173 with a SD of 3. It has killed several elk, deer, and antelope.

It is a beautiful rifle. I still shake my head when I see the success of the cartridge over the 260 Remington which beats it ballistically.

I'm not sure I would change a thing. If he Super Grade is going to be a hunting rifle that Leupold 2-7x is perfect. It is light and has plenty of magnification for reasonable hunting ranges.

I thought the 6.5TM was some kind of limited edition lifted RAM pickup, judging by my work's car park.

I am a old school 6.5mm guy. I still have my 1961 Flagg's 98 Mauser with a Douglas Premium grade 26" barrel in 264 Win Mag. It has killed a few Mule deer and prong Horn and Hundreds of ground hogs as well as prairie dogs and coyotes! At shy of 4000 fps the 87 gr Sierra HP's just about vaporize any ground hog this side of the horizon.

I have friends with the little 6.5 whiz bangs. On varmints, nothing a 22-250 doesn't do! On deer size game, nothing a good 243 Win doesn't do!

However, a beautiful rifle like that should never be allowed to fall into the hands of a man with a bun!

From the looks of things, they don't come in white or large, it won't cover the bald spot. :-)

I just wear a cap.

Have a blessed day,

I'm a 6.5 fan myself - but don't have any of the above. Mine are an early Reminton 700 and a Remington 660 in 6.5mm Rem. Mag see. I know there's some more of these out there, but I'll have to say I have t run into anyone in the woods totin' one.

That's not a "Man Bun".

We call that the "Highchair Haircut".

Bonus sissy points for the over-trimmed beard.

Sweet looking gun

I remember how my dad told me the thing to have would be a fast twist 6.5 -06 as the longer 6.5 bullets had such great ballistic coefficients. Remington mistake was making the 6.5 Remington mag in a short barreled medium-action. I have a few 600s and 660s even one in 350 Reminton mag. But, the 6.5 magnum did not make sense to me in that package. But, I bought a shooter 308 600, a 6.5 Creedmoor barrel and a Boyd's stock,
