My 6.5 Creedmoor… Enough said. Reply 🤣 For the sarc and humor challenged… Reply And 6.5 rules them all! Reply 😎 Reply That “375 Raptor” is a baby .375 for little kids to play with. I popped a lot of coyotes years ago with the real .375…. .375 H&H with (no longer available) Sierra 300 gr Spitzer Boattails over as much IMR 4064 as could fit in the case. That 300 gr Sierra was going about 75 to 100 fps faster than factory 300 gr loads and it was a big crummy varmint bullet at best, it would expand or disintegrate on impact with just about anything. It dropped them faster than anything else I’ve ever used. Reply There are several shops that have the correct setups to make custom ammo for you. I’ve done it myself with two obsolete cartridges. Here’s one for .375 H&H Mag: https://customcartridge.com/order/list.php?gval%5BProdCaliber%5D=375+H%26H+Magnum&gval%5BProdUseGeneral%5D=Hunting&pricing=&action=Search Reply WTF? I’ve loaded my own .375 H&H for 35 years. So where is this guy going to buy Sierra 300 gr Boattail Spitzer component bullets that went out of production years ago? Reply the Sierra rounds using the bullet went out of production. the actual bullet is still available from either custom houses or under discrete brands by contract. @RGP, Apologies if I misunderstood you. I thought you were referring to the cartridge itself being out of production; you may have meant only those specific bullets. In any case, those custom reloads are pricey for your H&H! I paid $2.50/ea (almost $50 for a box of 20) for .30 Remington to test out a 110-year-old rifle restoration. He could use the cup for an ashtray. Reply After he eats all his peanut m&Ms from it first. Reply I thought 6.5 Creedmore was finally a thing of the past. No worries. It soon will be. Reply better attend a coping seminar because if the 6.8 spc is still a thing to this day (theres as much 6.8 spc ammo on ammoseek.com as there is 6.5 grendel) then the 6.5 creedmoor will live forever sunce theres currently about 2x as much ammo for it on ammoseek than there is for the other two combined Reply not surprising, the one gets loaded in far more configurations (bolt, chassis, pistol, lever and all the semi’s) while the other two are dopey ar adaptardtions (for the most part). Reply No such thing as overkill. Reply UUUUM TRUE NO SUCH THING AS OVER KILL ?? WELLL WATCHED BROTHER IN LAW KILL A MILLER LIGHT CAN OF BEER THEN HE PUT 100 22LR RDS IN IT AND SAID I KILLED IT TWICE … WHATEVER … Reply Overkill… Using 2, $400,000 sidewinder missiles to shoot down a $12 hobby balloon. Reply Pretty much!🙁🙄 Reply Very true, but in clown world we must embrace the honk to thrive and survive. Reply i think we’re all bozos on this bus. “why does the porridge bird lay his egg in the air?” Reply I am still wondering why not use the aircrafts guns for balloon. Were they worried about where rounds would go after hitting the thing? Legitimate question. Reply As I understand it, yes, they were concerned a non-detonated round hitting a plow one spring and *Boom*. Or it laying on the ground and someone taking it home with them… Reply Oh, and apparently they hit the jackpot on that balloon they shot down in shallow water. It apparently had a self-destruct mechanism that failed to go off, so the intel guys have something to take apart and learn from. And we apparently have had U2 spy planes taking turns over it the entire time it was overhead. One pilot even got a selfie pic of his airplane’s shadow on the balloon envelope from overhead : https://dragonladytoday.com/2023/02/21/the-u-2-and-balloons-some-history-and-some-thoughts/ And Putin got all pissy when Biden went to Ukraine, and decided to thump his chest by launching an ICBM test. It Failed… 🙂 https://www.thedrive.com/the-war-zone/ukraine-situation-report-russian-icbm-test-failed-during-bidens-visit-to-kyiv “…failed to go off…” Gotta be a “Made In China” label on it somewhere, what goes around comes around, eh? Heads are rolling in Commie Land. After their performance in Ukraine I would have to wonder how many missiles would actually work, reach their targets, detonate the warhead, and at the proper yield. All this relies on maintenance and if junior staff decide it’s easier to fill out the paperwork but not actually do the job they will do so. Remember the mobiks are given a list of items they have to buy including clothes, boots, sleeping bags, and even night vision. You can see them in videos with mismatched “uniforms” of various patterns, wearing hiking boots or even runners, and are frequently dumped in the combat zone without food, shelter, and even weapons. And the gear they bought themselves is then stolen from them by their officers, regular troops, Wagner criminals, and Chechens. The world’s second most powerful army can’t even feed, clothe, and arm its troops. Corruption from the top down has made the Russian military a hollow shell that is a shadow of its former self. Not *one* of the Russian troops wants to be there, while the Ukraine people are literally fighting for their homes. Oh, and as more pictures come out about the rape and torture centers, and mass graves of murdered civilians? Who’s more motivated to win this one? heres the thing about overkill: when you need it and dont have it you sing a different tune Reply Hunting sage rats with .50 BMG. Reply Them pants be overkill Reply you know there is 8.6 blackout too Reply I don’t have a prairie dog in this fight. Reply I hunt coyotes on my ranch sometimes with just .22 Magnum, taking sub 100-yard shots. Works fine. Coyotes aren’t that hard to kill. Both .22 Creedmoor and .375 Raptor are overkill. 5.56/.223 is plenty adequate and a lot easier to find. I don’t really understand why people feel driven to use these weird specialty cartridges.
