Default High Power Match Rifle Questions

Is the 6XC cartridge all that?

What are your top choices for iron sights? Phoenix, Warner?

Anyone here familiar with the R5 chasis from Competition Shooting Stuff? Your thoughts would be appreciated.

Main purpose of rifle is for across the cross type competitions. 200-600yards. I want a deadly accurate, laser rifle that is very well balanced with little recoil.

are you talking about a cross the course rifle or a rifle that you can use in multiple disciplines, ie HP, F-class, tactical?

I wan't a dedicated high power rifle for the NRA High Power - Match Rifle Class. For everything else, I'm going to use my tactical rifle.

I want to learn how to use iron sights. There seems to be tons of high power stuff around my area. I met one guy at Piru, he was doing what I was doing up to 1k! With iron sights! That's impressive.

I'd go with a Tubb T2000 rifle with Zelenak Rifle Sights and I'd get it in 6.5 Creedmore.

that's too much bank. i'm trying to stick with the good ol' 700 platform and put it in a tube format. it's 1/3rd of the cost.

Sorry no recent expereience to draw from. When I shot HP I used a clip slotted M70 with Redfield sights. The modern trend is the T2000. On the cheap I'd suggest checking GB for a target rifle but they'll run you a couple large normally with sights. On the flip side would be to shoot service class but that'll cost some scratch to get into as well.

I was thinking about the service class, but I've been spoiled with bolt action accuracy. I've tracked down the stock maker, and he actually turned out to be local.

I can get a near match quality build for half of what Creedmore charges.

Service Rifle AR15s can hold 1MOA easily. Accuracy of only 1MOA isn't going to hold you back in High Power.

As far as the Creedmoor CSR-1, from my understanding, it is built by Gary Eliseo, who also builds the R5 kit.

The Eliseo guns are starting to get more respect as more people hear about it. The Eliseo kit is pretty prevalent in California because he's right here in SoCal so everyone that shoots HP has seen his gun(s) and met him.

From what I can see, the only real huge difference between a Tubb 2000 and an Eliseo gun will be the quick barrel change feature. The Tubb 2000 supports quick barrel changes. I'm not sure how headspace works, but it's supposed to be user serviceable with a Tubb action wrench.

I still have my 'sights' set on an R5 kit (with the Remington 700 action I've had stashed away since last year) in 6mmBR. Eventually I'll get it put together.

They say that the 6.5 Creedmore is like rocket fule for your match rifle. But does any one know? Any thoughts on how it compares to 6.5-284, 6.5x55, 6.5 Rem mag, 6.5 Grendal, 6.5 Carconno, 6.5 Lapua, 6.5 Tcu. Is 6.5 better.

You could look at it this way; as it's pretty new stuff (6.5 Creedmore). Dennis Demille (outstanding shooter, world record holder) shoots it very well, I shot with him at 29 Palms recently. Hornady developed it and makes the dies for it. I would say all those 6.5 are good, very hard to say one is penultimate.

Check out this thread on different 6.5MM cartridges on The Hunter's Life Forums.

6mm calibers generally have a slight advantage to 600 yards, but will go through barrels roughly twice as fast. The 6.5 Creedmore supposedly combines the best qualities of the 260Rem with the best qualities of the 6.5x47 Lapua.
