  • I've shot a 6.5 Creedmoor, very nice round. But with all the 6.5 rounds, grendel, creedmoor, etc. Most of those are hand-loads. I doubt most people shooting those rounds are buying off the shelf rounds, they're making handloads.

    Pretty sure the record for longest shot is a .223 round though.

    What??! Are you sure? I can't imagine what the holdover would be at that distance with a .223. The longest military sniper kill in history was from 3871 yards (how many miles is that??) by a Canadian in Iraq in 2017. He slung a .50 BMG.

    It depends whose "World Record" is claimed, but .408 CheyTac and .416 Barrett rule the roost at KO2M (King of 2 Miles) and the world record sniper shot was the Canadian sniper (I never saw his name published) and his .50 BMG McMillan TAC-50 at 2.2 miles.

    If .223 holds any world record, it's probably one of those "in its class" records.

    The popularity and increasing ubiquity of 6.5 Creedmoor (though not nearly as ubiquitous as 7.62 NATO) has cooled enthusiasm for the 6.5 Grendel, but it is still an amazing cartridge: 6.5 Grendel Cartridge Guide
    Accurate, Efficient, AR-Friendly Cartridge is Winning Converts https://www.accurateshooter.com/cartridge-guides/6-5-grendel-cartridge-guide/  The 6.5 Creedmoor is a "better" cartridge than the Grendel, but it won't fit in the Mini-Mauser or AR15 actions and it requires much more powder, more recoil, and heavier rifle to obtain its performance.

    I was expecting worse but I guess if she was covered in tramp stamps she could not be a police officer. And I agree with your sentiments. 
    Cold winters are a blessing as they force modesty, unless you want to freeze parts of your anatomy. 
    Y’all probably read about the US embargo on Ruskie ammo. That stuff is getting scarce even up here. Yeeesh.  :'(

    "Some preachers will keep silence about the truth, and others will trample it underfoot and deny it. Sanctity of life will be held in derision even by those who outwardly profess it, for in those days Our Lord Jesus Christ will send them not a true Pastor but a destroyer."  St. Francis of Assisi
