Those who have spent more than ten minutes talking shop with me will know that I’m a certified 6.5 Creedmoor fanboy. Like Leghorn and his beloved .300 BLK, I’m smitten. The ballistics, the ability to the buck the wind, and the great factory support for match ammo have me convinced that the slick little 6.5 is the next best thing to sliced bread. Apparently Seekins believes in it too as they’ve introduced a 6.5 Creedmoor chambering for their SP 10 series of rifles . . .
A cursory look at the display rifle indicates that it checks all the boxes. They’ve sourced the butt stock (PRS), magazines, and grip from Magpul while the trigger is a single-stage CMC affair. The lower sports ambidextrous controls for the safety, bolt release, and magazine release. The rifle will be offered like Henry Ford’s Model T, any color you want as long as it’s black. My guy in the booth tells me that it will feature a sturdy 1:8 twist barrel and by my eye, it looks to be about twenty-two inches long. It will come from the factory with Seekins’ ATC brake that finished in the top 10 in Jeremy’s muzzle brake shootout.
I’ve been asked to send over FFL info, so the stars seem to have aligned for me to get one to test and review. MSRP is slated at $2650.
