Electronics / Software / Gadgets / Re: Gordon's Reloading Tool

I've used both and continue to use both, and I have have also just ordered the data updates from Quickload as well.

From what I've seen so far, with the 6.5cm, using H4350 and Hornady 140gr ELD-M bullets, Quickload and GRT were very close to each other, and also seemed to align (again close) with actual measured velocity for powder charge.

For other reloads for my 454 Casull, GRT was way off the mark, where Quickload was again very close to actual. So, possibly a difference in powder type and data for those load in GRT. There are certainly some things I like with GRT in terms of presentation, but both applications require running on Microsoft Windows, which for me, means a virtual machine running on my Mac laptop.

I haven't been to the range yet this year, it's about 45 min. away. It's gonna be a while before I get there, it's cold with snow on the ground. The temp isn't a big deal but I want to recover my brass.

Shot at our Monday morning practice session out to 600 yards.  We have a local match next Sunday at that distance so we had a good turn-out.  This will be an electronic target match which will be new for me.  The club is mixing up doing registered NBRSA matches and then local electronic target matches.  We're working to pull in some new shooters and creating some new classes for chassis guns etc.  

The electronic targets are pretty nice.  You get to see each shot immediately with the group size and score.  Here is the 6mm Grendel.....slowing getting it dialed in.  

After we shot the practice, a fellow shooter and I went and shot pistols at the public range.  I hadn't shot my 9mm Beretta 92FS in several years...it was fun to get some time with it.

Just starting up really . went on a range day and struggled to get to 950 with my 243, so fancied a bigger calibre. Also non toxic legislation in the uk will  make 243 for Deer obsolete. 6.5CM ticks both boxes. want a versatile gun, tho i wont be doing any stalking really . either shooting prone or on a rest from a vehicle.

Just my personal opinion.. the 150 class bullets are better suited for say a 6.5 prc or 6.5x284.. the 6.5 creedmoor just lacks a little horsepower to run them effectively.. the 6.5 creedmoor was designed to run the 140 class bullets in a 8 twist and does very well with that weight bullet and shooting to a 1000 yards.. with a 7 twist you get lower velocity and more rpms.. trying to get the velocity up there to where the bullet performs at its best then your spinning it to fast and they like to go poof before they make it to the target.. i personally would stick with a 1and8 twist 26 inch barrel and shoot 140 class bullets.. just my .02 cents worth
Gman has it right.  Don't try to make a magnum out of the Creed.  I get outstanding accuracy with the 144 Berger Hybrid in a 31" barrel with a 1:8 twist.  Are you shooting known distance or PRS.  A flatter trajectory helps in PRS and the 150+ bullets are going slow in a Creed way out there even with a better BC.
