    The 7mm08 is a decent round but honestly the CM is a phenomenal round. Iíve shot or have been beside the shooter for 3 elk kills with the CM in the past 5 years. Including a cow I shot at around 650 yards. One shot kills on all three. The increased velocity from reduced drag really shows on that round past 300 yards.


    Especially the English language.

    Damn Iíve been trying to avoid the 6.5CM, that sort of performance is gonna drive me over the edge LoL! I like the idea of a very efficient round like that for hunting. Even though I own a magnum hunting round ( I was encouraged by my dad to get it since he had one and received it as a graduation gift) I think itís overkill for the terrain I hunt now vs the freshwater marshes I hunt led then. The Creedmoor does seem like it was designed by some very logical minds.


    Oh damn LoL!

    That doesn't seem like an ethical shot. It would be really easy to wound the animal.

    I agree. They say as much in the comments. But they also speak to shooters experience.

    Either way, more people are taking 500+ shots with the .65CM on elk without an issue. Just a couple years ago, that was considered absurd.
