What on earth are you smoking? Better shot placement results in less tracking. Often better shot placement is achieved with lighter recoil. Less powder usually equates to less expensive which can lead to more down range which will also lead to better shot placement. I have no problem with magnums ( I own a couple) but my 308, 243, 30-30, and 303 all kill with just as much authority.

I just don't buy into the kool aid your selling.

Hahah im with you on that one Dweb.
I have also decided I would like to add a 6.5 Creedmoor to the gun safe. I think ill wait till the Christenson Arms Mesa LH models hit Canada and get one ordered up from Prophet River.
Probably be right around that 2K mark, but I think itll be worth the investment.

The only moose that I've seen lost was shot at 75 yards with a 300 weatherby magnum. The shooter had switched from a .243 which he'd shot for years and may have been less proficient with the big magnum? I can't say for sure, all I know is that we followed that blood trail for hours... probably needed more powder.

Marky_mark is not a thoughtful person... just another loudmouth troll.

338-378 wby is right there neck and neck with the 338 rum. I like the rum just fine mind you I don't think it's 7lbs. Probably 9.

I'm sure the creedmore is quite capable but it is not something that I desire to have in my gun safe.

I have no particular desire for you to have a 6.5 creed in your gunsafe either, what in the blue blazes does that have to do with anything?

Btw, the original poster does have a desire for one in his gun safe....does this bother you or something? Just wondering why you're here seeing as you have so little interest in the subject of this thread.

Great caeser's ghost..

there are some characters on the world wide web.

Thought twice about what I was gonna post do to getting put in the penalty box but I'm sure you got a pretty good idea what I my opinion about you and what you can insert where.
