    I haven't heard anything official but I have seen them listed on Gallery of Guns.

    I aint heard nothing official either. FWIW Lipseys and Davidsons listed the Thunder Ranch, Flex, Scout, LR and LC each for a good while before they became available.

    I spoke with Mossberg about a 6.5 Creedmoor MVP variant this time last year. I got tired of waiting. Picked up a Savage 10T 6.5 Cerrdmoor about a month and a half ago.

    I'd really like to get a left handed MVP, I'm sure that will never happen though

    I'd be more interested in a PPC bolt face. Anything 308/243/22-250 case based is just a barrel swap away already.

    A barrel swap is a lot easier than designing a new bolt head.

    Yep. Would be nice if they'd do a 6.5grendel version of the .223 MVP. I'd own one right away.

    Come to think of it, it probably wouldn't be too hard to redo a bolt head if you had the specs. Just remove the 308/223 hole and have it cut to spec, might be a little pricey though.

    How's that 10T working for you, MechTech? Was seriously considering it myself, wondering about waiting/saving for the 10BA Stealth or an RPR to show up in the LGS, or just trying out the 10T- the price is definitely right! I want to do some long range shooting.

    What's the parent case of the Creedmore?

    .300 Savage, whose parent case is .30-'06. In a pinch you could make 6.5 Creedmore brass by shortening and necking any .30-'06 .270 Winchester, 8mm Mauser, 7mm Mauser, .308 Win. .243 Win. and so an so forth.

    Since Savage small shank barrels work in the .308 MVP changing to 6.5 Creedmore will be easy enough.

    There's a whole wall full of chamberings based on the .300sav/.250sav case showing up at silhouette matches over the last couple years being called Wally's. 6xc is also based on the same .250sav case. It's a good case with several grains less capacity than a .308 case so it's not as expensive to load for in the numbers that match shooters usually need. In practice I see about 6-8 grains less powder being used in the .250 case. In 1000 rounds that's a saved pound of powder at the big end and a bit of throat erosion.

    Closer to 6.5x47L actually.

    Screw making 6.5CM brass or buying crappy but expensive Hornady or Nosler 6.5CM, just build a 6.5x47L and use Lapua brass, they are very close to the same thing, except 6.5x47L is slightly shorter and uses SR primer.

    All of which makes it a superior case, especially the SRP. Small primer, more pressure. If you're in competition shooting you'll probably eventually end up pushing the pressure envelope a bit. And yeah, what GrocMax said. 100x that. Making brass sucks, suck brass sucks. Lapua brass rocks!

    I like it! It is heavy! Right at about 10 lbs without glass. I will be using it for long range coyotes, so it fits the bill. It was a steel at $499.00. The only upgrades I can forsee would be threading the barrel for my suppressor.

    The text says new for 2016 but I think it's a typo because the banner reads NEW FOR 2017 in huge block letter type.
