I’m building a trunk gun, I’ll use it for hunting and some long range plinking out to 1000 yards. Trying to figure out what bullet and load to use that will still give me good ballistics. Thinking in the 130-144 grains?
anyone able to get some decent speed with a 16 inch creedmoor?

I’ve probably loaded 5000+ rounds for my 6.5cm but that was for my long range rig and has only really ran 143gr-156gr bullets, so light bullets are a new realm for me.

I had a 16" 6.5x47 and it did very well with 130 berger AR Hybrids over Varget. I loaded a little warm and got 2800 MV. Killed many whitetails from 300 yds and in. Should do just as well with the creed.
