6.5 Creedmoor 147 gr ELD® Match

Did anyone try it out of his Blaser?
Pulled out the bullet, measured the charge or tried to clone the load?
Bob?

Hey guys,

Are any of you shooting the heavy for caliber bullets like this in the factory Blaser 6.5 Creedmoor barrel? I was under the impression that the Blaser barrel in 6.5 Creedmoor was a 1:10 twist and would not stabilize this bullet or something like the 140 or soon to be released 155 grain Bergers. I only ask because I am in the process of having Elmer build me a 1:8 twist barrel for shooting these types of bullets.

Thanks - Joel

The Blaser 6.5 Creedmoor barrels are 1:8 twist. Still don' know they will stabilize the heavies but do fine with the 143 ELD-X.

Thank you for clearing that up. I was only going off of Europtic's website where it listed it as a 1:10. That makes life a lot easier. You did just mess up a barrel sale for Elmer though!

I thought at one time we had a sticky or a file that listed all of the twist rates for Blaser rifles on this forum, but I can't seem to locate it anymore.

Thanks again.
