    I don't own one, I was just comparing published velocity & energy numbers that I found on a reloading website. And Hornady's info.
    I'm planning on buying a Savage LWH, just still on the fence as far as calibers go. I don't think you can buy a 5 1/2 lb. rifle anywhere, that's in the same price range as the Savage. Do you own one Elkoholic? If so, how do you like it?? Thanks.

    No, I don't but I do admire the cartridge. I love Savage rifles but with a 20" barrel you are going to be sacrificing a lot of speed for that less weight. I was going to argue with you about your '6.5 Creedmoor holding it's velocity and energy longer than a 7mm' comment but now I'm getting out of the mood, haha.

    Might check the Savage long range hunter. I have a 26" barrel in the 25-06. Not sure what other barrel lengths or calibers it comes in. Second hand load I tried after breaking in, 5 shot 1" group at 200 meters. 100 gr sierras with 52 gr of R-22 powder. Flat shooting gun. Little light for elk but I have taken 2 with it. One at 50 yards and 1 at 350. Bullet placement was always preached to me by my Dad. We shot all our deer with 222 growing up. We did a lot of prairie dog shooting with them. All we ever used were hand loads to save money 40 years ago.
