Well carried my new RAP in 6.5 creedmoor to the range today. I had hornady 120 and 140 factory loads to try out. All I can say is I'm extremely impressed ! All shots were at 100 yards, 1st group is 6 shots 3 120's and 3 140's. 2nd group is my group with the 120's. It was a quick range trip just to test the gun mainly next time I'm gonna get all into it. But I'm amazed at how well this ugly and cheap gun shoots lol I think I love it. I wanted a cheap gun that I could hunt in bad weather with and not feel bad like I do with my expensive guns. This thing shoots circles around most of my expensive guns. uploadfromtaptalk1440364163023.jpg uploadfromtaptalk1440365035906.jpg

I was just looking at one of these in 6.5 Creedmore last week. Thanks for the peek. So far I have bought three Americans, a Ranch model in 5.56, a compact in .223, and a full size in .270. Everyone shoots well beyond their price point. Great caliber for the money.

Last night after I got it I had to file the left side of the stock down some it was touching the barrel some. Stock is very flimsy but apparently good enough. I'm very satisfied no doubt.

I'm sure it does I'm owned the 260 rem. And a 6.5x55 I'm a dedicated 6.5 guy now. I don't even mess with my others now. Killed a bunch of deer with the Swede and 260. 130 accubonds, 140 sst, 140 hornady sp, 120 ballistic tip all pass throughs. I'm a firm believer in the penetration of 6.5 mm bullets regardless of velocity. Can't wait to try the creedmoor on some deer this year

Took the creedmoor back out again today and still very impressed. I screwed up one group by rushing through it cause I was hot and tired, and that group still went 1.08. So I'm ecstatic over this rifle
