Re: "The Crazy Story of the Birth of the 6.5 Creedmoor" Reply #15 – April 15, 2018, 03:57:25 PM Sportacus, after reading your post. I concur - with extreme prejudice! That said, I'll share what a friend will joke about with me and my favorite cartridge. He says that it is not a "6.5 Creedmoor" but (his words) a 6.5 NeedMore! This is all very tongue in cheek on his part of course. I should also qualify the fact that he builds all of his own rifles with a preference for the 50 Cal. (he travels and competes nationally placing very well at the various competitions he participates in judging by the hardware scattered around his mancave/machine shop).
