    Exactly. The 6.5 Creedmoor was designed specifically to allow the longest match bullets available to be used in a 308 length magazine. It does that superbly. I predict we will see the same with the newly introduced .224 Valkyrie. The .224...

    During various panics their front page would state how long their backlog was before they even processed the order. Never ordered anything during panics.

    Fire a military surplus 7.62x39 in a .308 barrel and you will have to beat the bolt open with a hammer. Ken

    Remington put a lot of 10 twist barrels on the 260's. A 10 twist is too slow for 140's and 9 is marginal. I believe the VLS was a 9 twist but should have been 8 twist.

    What powder? Real black I would not clean, however, Pyrodex would get cleaned ASAP.

    Feeler threads are not allowed on the forum. I have locked the thread. If you have a genuine question about value and availability plead reword your question to make it more clear to what you are looking for. Ken

    The 6.5 Creedmoor was introduced in 2008. The 26 Nosler was introduced in 2014. The 6.5 Creedmoor was designed specifically NRA HighPower shooting. It had limited general popularity and it would still have limited popularity had it not be...

    Back when I was shooting Bullseye with a 45ACP I did test different crimps on my cast loads for accuracy. .468" on the 45 worked best for me. If I remember correctly that is about .004 total crimp. I have never tested any of my 9mm.

    You got a good deal needless to say. In good shape they tend to vary between $50-75. Below average condition usually bring $30-45.

    I have the same press, but it is red. Also, Iíve always wondered if Texan bought that offset handle for both of their single stage presses in aluminum and also iron. The Texan handle looks identical to the CH except for the CH cast markings.
