The 6 Creed’s performance was as dazzling as the rifle’s paint job. Using 105-grain A-Max bullets behind 43.2 grains of H4831SC, it had no difficulty ringing steel at 1,000 yards and beyond.
Mission accomplished. We did this work in 2009, and the story appeared in the August 2010 issue of Outdoor Life, after which George and I didn’t give much thought to the little wildcat and moved on to other projects.
Little did we realize, however, we had planted a seed that was poised to blossom. It just needed the right environment in which to flourish.
That came along a couple of years later, with the rise of Precision Rifle Series (PRS) competition.
The Perfect PRS Cartridge
In the PRS, shooters race against the clock to hit steel targets that are worth different point values, depending on their difficulty.
Every shooter strives for first-round hits, which are typically worth more points, but the ability to spot misses and make quick corrections with follow-up shots is one skill that separates top competitors from the rest of the pack.
Depending on the time allotted, it can be a sprint to engage all the targets in a stage, which can be anywhere from 10 to 1,300 yards downrange, so quick shooting is a must.
A good PRS cartridge must shoot flat, not beat up the shooter with recoil, use bullets with high BCs that buck the wind, and not have a muzzle velocity in excess of 3,200 fps so as not to damage the targets. The 6 Creedmoor fit the bill perfectly.
