Hi from new 6.5 owner March 31, 2010, 09:44:08 AM :)Good morning all, I just found this site last night and had to join. Kind of a long story of how I came up with a Ruger Hawkeye in 6.5 Creedmoor, but the more I read about it, the more excited I'm getting. I came up with a new Hawkeye and 2 boxes of the 120 Amaxes. I will be going back to get the last 2 boxes of 120 Amaxes also since its kind of hard to find loads or brass right now. But hey the factory loads I'm getting for $26.50 a box so I guess I can live with that for now. I will need to get the dies of course later. I plan to use this for hunting and a little paper punching. Must decide on a scope and considering cutting the barrel down to about 23". I'm thinking that 130 accubond may be just the ticket or maybe just the Hornady 129 interlock. Anyway got a lot to get figured out since this is the first 6.5 for me so I guess I better get started. Thanks for a great forum, hope it sticks around. See ya Les.
