Thanks for the update. That load looks very good and likely gives a good idea of factory speeds with weights in that range. I've not given too much attention to the Creedmore, but it looks like a fantastic factory alternative for a 6.5mm handgun. It looks ideal for covering a lot of light and medium hunting situations. Thanks again.

I also have a Scout V2 6.5 CM ordered and should be here any day now! From all I've read you can figure 200 - 300 fps less in the 14inch barrel. I'm basing this on an article I read which reported the velocity loss by the inch from 27 to 16 inches.
Shooting 120 grain bullets showed a loss of 233 fps and shooting 140 grainers showed a loss of 153. These figures may be a little off due my terrible memory but I think they are close. Remember you will still lose a little from 16 inches to 14 inches also.

Any updates on this pistol?

I found one and am kinda tempted. But, want to make sure guys are still pleased with it.

What accuracy and velocities are y?all getting with what bullets?

My local dealer still has a couple in stock. He flooded the local market with the 243 version that came in before the 6.5's.

An Evolution Gun Works Scope Base is an improvement to the basic Scout. The factory Triggers have been very good on everyone of them I have handled. Probably on par with an Encore or G2 with a trigger job. They are Encore tough.
I have a Scout in 357 Maximum as well as the Optima V2 muzzle loader pistol. Both are shooters. Our Club Secretary and his son both have the 243 version of the Scout. Both of them drive tacks. The only negative is the cheap plastic grip and forend they come with.

I have the ..243 version and really like how it shoots. But, with a 10T barrel, I can only shoot up to 85gr bullets.

Thinking the 6.5 would get me up to 140gr bullets with its 8T barrel and carry on where the .243 version drops.

I want one too! I just sent a pretty penny SSK, but that 6.5 Creedmore is intriguing.

I have the 243 version and it seems to shoot 100 grain factory Federal fine. I also have the 6.5CM and if I'm not mistaken both barrels are 1 in 10 twist. I got some good advice from people on this forum that have much more experience than I do and they advised I shoot 130 grain bullets or lighter in the 6.5. I shot Winchester 125s in it with good results. Does anyone know for certain what twist these barrels are? I was thinking I saw on the CVA website that both were 1 in 10?

I called CVA and they said 1-8T for the 6.5 CM.

1-10T for the .243 win.
The only heavy bullets I have for the .233 Win are 105gn A-Max and they shot like crap in the CVA. Too long for the twist, I assume.
