Enough experience with one to know you'll kill anything on your list pretty handily, as long as you don't gut shoot any of the elk or deer. (Haven't shot an elk yet with it, but have successfully killed several with a 2506.) Works very well on mulies.

Elk will be a very rare chance but thank you for the input ot will mostly be for deer and pigs what do you all think would be a good mid range bullet for a do all one

143 ELDX

haven't shot an elk with one but wouldn't hesitate if presented with a good broadside shot under 300yards.

A solid rest is a must.

Big boars are a good test for bullets and ammo.
We have killed a lot of pigs with a CM and 129 grain hornadys
Like a .243, it’s fun and easy to shoot well.

I have had nothing but success with my CM. I have a kimber mountain ascent and absolutely love it. Killed three deer last year and several pigs and a bobcat. Mine shoots hornady 143 grain the best. My wife used it last year to kill her first deer every and at 96 yards he folded up. I bought her a 6.5 browning xbolt gold medallion this year. Can’t go wrong with it. I’m just no help on the bigger game aspect, sorry.

Don't have one and never shot one. Was curious about the 6.5CM and looked around for info before. I'll try and find the article I read where a lot of experts don't like the CM for hunting purposes. I know you'll find some who swear by it but there are better rounds out there. It's just the latest fad...

Honestly the 6.5 CM wont do anything that what you have wont do. If you're itching for a new rifle though go for it, you can't have to many choices.

I agree 100% with this. BUT, with that said I jumped on the ban wagon and absolutely love the 6.5 creed. Very accurate and the 143 ELD-x bullet is devastating on whitetails and hogs. Just a fun flat light recoil round.

This is the second box of factory ammo through my 6.5 Creedmoor. Very happy with it, and the last shot is dead center at 100 yards. Haven't pulled the trigger on any game yet, but its coming with me every chance I get.

For your intended use, I'd go ahead and just get the 6.5 prc. Shoot the 143gr eldx and get some extra knockdown.

I've used both and if the situation is perfect, doesn't matter, but if you start to get out there on distance or need to drop a pig as it's exiting the field - the PRC is the way to go.

I personally would not take a 6.5 anything on an elk hunt, I'd prefer a 7mm or a 30 cal.

Hornady Black ammo 140 gr bthp. @ 200 yards. Third group out of this rifle. T/C compass 6.5 CM.
143 eldx are pretty close to this.

My 6.5 Creedmoor has killed everything we have hunted with it. This includes mule deer, whitetails, elk, gemsbok, Aoudad, and antelope. I’m shooting 143 grain hornady precision hunters.

Personally I'm not a fan. I had one and sold it. Shot some deer and pig and it did fine like all popular hunting rounds would do. I think it's just the latest fad. There's no doubt it's a good paper puncher at long range. I like my .270 WSM a lot better for a "hunting" round. I shoot a 145 grain ELD-X that's going 3100 FPS and has 3094 foot pounds of energy. The same precision hunter load with the 143 grain 6.5 Creedmoor is only going 2700 FPS and has 2315 foot pounds of energy. So you tell me what you would rather shoot... Yes I know the 6.5 outperforms at distance, but I didn't buy either one for a long range paper destroyer.

The 6.5 Creedmoor sucks. If you can’t shoot well enough to hit the vitals of an animal. But then so does everything else. It’s no better or worse than a myriad of similar calibers.

I've been shooting/hunting with one for a few years and have been pretty happy with it. It's on the light side for elk, but will work just fine if you do your part (and know its limitations) Me and my wife have killed easily shot over 30 animals so far with no issues. Out of all those critters nothing has run over 30-40 yards after impact, shot distances ranged from 50-600 yards (9 animals over 500yards)

The only ammo I have shot is the cheap Hornady America gunner 140 grain ($150.00 for 200rounds) out of the 3 rifles I've run it out of, its been under MOA on all of them (down to .6 moa)

The bang for the buck of this round is hard not beat (I haven't found anything that touches it for the cost of ammo, accuracy, light recoil)

Obviously, it's not a magnum cartridge and comparing it is kinda apples and oranges.

I am not a “fad” guy.
I have 3 .270’s. Old fashioned, right? But my tc compass 6.5 CR for deer and pigs is a good match without the extra recoil and has great accuracy.
Ammo is less than $20/box

I've only taken 2 animals with my 6.5 CM.

Pronghorn at 75 yards, 143 ELDx, shot straight on with no exit wound and he did a backflip.

East Texas Buck 125 yards 123 SST, shot right behind shoulder with 1.5" exit hole, DRT.

I'm enjoying the "fad" and will keep my Creedmoor.

That said, I've purchased a 6.5 Grendel that I'll be experimenting with just because I like the ballistics.

I have a couple of 6.5 CM rifles. I had the thermal on one for a while. Bullet selection is very important. The Hornady Black seems like the bullets are soft and prone to fragment on pigs. Forget the Amax, they explode. The American Whitetail is decent, but the Hornady Full Boar stuff is great. The solid copper holds together and retains weight well. Pass they'd are the norm on even big hogs. I found a box of the old Hornady 160 gr. RN pills to try, but haven't got the opportunity to do so yet.

I'm sorry they didn't teach reading comprehension where you went to school.

I don't as a rule criticize any caliber that I haven't used before. I hadn't planned on joining the 6.5 creedmoor bandwagon but a good deal on a custom rifle came along. I couldn't resist. Being a gun whore isn't easy. It's not that I thought that there was anything wrong with the caliber. It's just that I had numerous 6.5 calibers already. Including .260, 6.5 grendel, 6.5X284, and a .264 Winchester Magnum.

I've only shot one animal so far with the Creedmoor. A big boar hog that took a bullet to the brain. Needless to say he dropped on the spot. Just like he would have with many other calibers. So I don't have enough game killing experience with the round to not like it.

I'm willing to bet it will do just fine. Bullet selection in most cases is more important than the cartridge.

I hope you got in on the deal alert that I posted for some 6.5 Creedmoor brass. I've got an extra 500 rounds to get loaded up. I'm planning on using mine this season.

I have Rem 783 HB 24" in 6.5 CM... it shoots 140gr ELDMs into little .4" holes at 100 yards. Can't wait to try it out on game. It is only about 100fps behind my 6.5x284 which performed admirably on deer sized game.

If I were going to hunt elk with a 6.5CM I would definitely pick a bullet other than an ELDM but it's great for thin skinned animals.

My only elk kill fell to an arrow so I can't speak on terminal performance for an animal that size. My .308 + 168gr Amax killed a Red Stag just fine but it barely flinched, turned straight away from me and then tipped over about 15 seconds later. I prefer a bit more visible reaction... like dropping.

For elk- a true trophy hunt with a rifle for me... I'm bringing something bigger, either my .338wm for 300 yards and in... or my .300 Norma for the way out theres.

Whitetail thumper for sure. I shoot the 140 eldm. Have killed them from 60 yds out to 445yds and have not had a single one live. Never have hunted elk with it but 300 and in I would not hesitate pulling the trigger. Going to play with the 6.5 prc a little this season. Going to shoot the 147 eldm in that

While I understand you are happy with that, you shouldn’t be. At 100 yards that’s some awful grouping. I only say this because you likely have an issue with your gun. I wouldn’t shoot at an animal with that gun till you get it fixed.

I'd say you have multiple calibers that'll do what you're looking for.. 270, 3006, 308, 7mm08, 2506. If you just wanna have something new.. 6.5 is good but id be more comfortable with the 270, 3006 and 308 for elk and mulies personally. With the 6.5 just make sure to use a proven hunting bullet and not a target bullet modded with marketing hype to a hunting bullet.. are you reloading?

Great gun and should do anything you want. I shoot the Hornady 143gr ELDX in my Christensen and I reload a 143gr bullet for my other two.

Read my post again. That was the second box of ammo shot through a brand new gun/scope/chassis, and the other shots were from adjusting the scope. I have only shot it at paper so far, but will go to the range again before I take it hunting.
